Indian Textiles @ Bharatiya Craft Mela

Sharing some pictures of traditional Indian textiles like handloom textiles,  Bengali cottons/silks, Chikankari and brocade that were exhibited in a Craftmela (craft exhibition) took place in Bengaluru, on the occasion of Indian Independence Day.

Bhaarata! Bharatavarsha! Jambudweepa! 

Tianzhu (Tenjiku)! Hind! Hindustan! Hodu! India!

All the above names are of our motherland!

Multiple traditions, hundreds of languages, vast variety of traditional arts… Geographical diversity… 

All colour our nation vividly that is unique with its geographical diversity…

Proud to be Indian!

Happy Independence day!

Dear Tantu Enthusiast,

We had celebrated first ever Handloom Day last week on 7th August, 2015. As we know, there are many world famous textiles native to India. I had been to a Textile exhibition on 1st March, 2015 in Bengaluru. I was happy to find a good collection of handloom cotton shirts, Bengali cotton/silk saris, brocades, Chikankari suits/saris by sellers from various parts of India. They were traditional yet very fashionable. The price range was very reasonable. Below are some photographs clicked at Bharatiya Craftmela, enjoy!

    beautiful … reminds me of the days when i was living in our village I would see aunts and mom making such beautiful creations .. Trying to build their dowry.. making fulkari’s and bedsheets etc etc

  5. Is chikankari the same as Lucknowi? I love their shades. I find both very cool against the skin and ideal for Indian summers
