Couture City and the SUSTAINABLE DRAPES
FROM FAVOURITE DESIGNERS TO NEW TALENT, Simply KolKata PICKS EIGHT LABELS FOR YOUR FASHION FIX
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.
