Handlooms and weaves are being curated by some who understand the uniqueness and beauty of traditional weaving forms. Of course, given that the new generation believes in fast fashion, there are many who do not believe in investing in ‘costly’ handlooms. But one lady who has been involved in the revival journey is Lakshmi Ramakrishnan. And she has just opened a store in Banjara Hills to keep alive the exotic tradition of the country.


Lakshmi Ramakrishnan happens to be the founder of The Aadya Collective and is known for collecting handloom sarees. She has taken the step to satiate her passion apart from keeping the tradition of weaving alive. She believes in keeping a limited collection to try and give the very best of the country’s craftsmanship.


“There is so much happening in our country in terms of handlooms. Every state has its own weaves. Years back, when we used to visit General Bazaar, we would get lovely handlooms. But now, the same has been replaced by machine yarns, which is why I want to revive the art. We curate the most authentic ones to give an old-world feel, shares Lakshmi.


Though Lakshmi started about three-four years ago, she had to shut shop during Covid-19. However, her newly opened store has Bengal cotton, Kanchi, Uppada, Kadhi, and Chanderi, among other weaves. She says her store is not about the profit motive, though she intends to expand when the sales increase.


However, Lakshmi is worried that the weavers are no longer interested in their craft and passing it on to younger generations. To add to their problems, there is 5 percent GST. So, we plead to the government that they must focus on the handloom industry, says Lakshmi.
