India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA - By MALINI BAN­ER­JEE

For most of the fash­ion savvy in the city, Weavers Stu­dio and its work with weaves, tex­tiles and tex­tile re­vival has been an open se­cret. But it’s only when the 23-year-old brand show­cased at the Lakme Fash­ion Week Win­ter Fes­tive 2016 for the Sus­tain­able Fash­ion and In­dian Tex­tile Day, that the rest of the coun­try heard about it. With the motto of hand­crafted and sus­tain­able fash­ion, the stu­dio has cre­ated a niche for it­self. Its clas­sic weaves are worn by Aparna Sen, Sha­bana Azmi, Nan­dita Das and many more.

The stu­dio is known for its ex­ten­sive work with kan­tha em­broi­dery and more re­cently for its work in sourc­ing and re­viv­ing baluchari weaves—a craft rooted in the Ben­gali tra­di­tion. Their forth­com­ing col­lec­tion will in­clude hand-spun and hand-made fab­rics like jam­dani, khadi, wild silks and indigo dyed fab­rics. Patch­work gar­ments in­spired by Ja­panese and Korean tech­niques in nat­u­ral colours like red, off-white, indigo, grey, earthy browns will be seen.
