Guide 113 - A Note on Banarasi Weaving by WOVENSOULS intern Parv Kapoor

 
"As a part of my master’s program in Industrial Arts and Design at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore, I worked on an internship with Wovensouls.
The subject of the internship study was ‘Banarasi Weaving’, a category of silks woven in Banaras or Varanasi that is the pride of a bride's trousseau. Banarasi silks are passed down from generation to generation and are coveted heirlooms that women are proud to inherit.
In order to structure our understanding of the types of Banarasi weavings, interviews were conducted in Banaras (Varanasi) with three generations of weavers and dealers.
In the following report I present the findings of the study conducted under the guidance of Jaina Mishra, Wovensouls.
