During the pandemic, one of the worst-hit sections of people was the weavers and handicraft makers. To help them re-start their businesses, Sampoorn, a Bengaluru-based non-profit organization, has put up an exhibition of their works and products at the Kalinga Cultural Trust in Banjara Hills. The exhibition will be on till August 16.


The exhibition has unique stalls from various states of India featuring over 30 craft groups, weavers, designers, artists, and more. Right from Ikkat sarees to block prints to handcrafted ceramics, Pichwai art depicting mythological themes, the exhibition has a good representation of various crafts from across the country.


Sampoorn that has been working with weavers and artisans for over two decades, decided to bring the exhibition to Hyderabad to ensure their sustainability. One of the key aspects of the exhibition is sustainability both in terms of economics and the environment. There are stalls that have made innovative use of upcycled plastic to using eco-friendly plant-based dyes; the exhibition has something for all.




Eco Kaari is an initiative by Pune-based youngsters who use polythene covers, PET bottles, and other single-use plastics to make bags, wallets, and other such useful products. Thonje is a Bengaluru-based brand by Nirav Shah that has an interesting collection for men that includes blazers, waistcoats, kurtas, among others. They use the weaves from the south and get them painted in the north. Their weaves are hand-made, and the dyes used are eco-friendly.


Yet another stall from Jaipur has a good collection of apparel dyed with plant-based dyes. One stall to watch out for is surely the Pichwai painting stall by Rajasthani artist Mukul Joshi. Very popular these days, his Pichwai paintings are made on high-quality hand-woven cotton with natural stone colors.
