INDIA'S BEST DESIGN PROJECT 2019

RE-THINKING THE PAITHANI WEAVE


Project Introduction:

This art installation is a celebration of the humble ‘Paithani’ weave and the discarded plastic bag. Embracing the concept of transformation and reuse as a fundamental esthetic principle, a handcrafted fabric of waste plastic bags and biscuit wrappers made on a traditional handloom forms the base of this artwork. Paithani, named after the town of Paithan near Aurangabad, is a 2000-year-old cultural legacy whose ancient motifs are derived from living in harmony with nature and its elements.
