Natural Dyes

Sacred Choice, a new collection from Bengaluru-based ‘A Web of Yarn’ by designer Shubha Rao, will showcase the timeless traditions of natural dyed and block printed fabric in shibori.

The collection has contemporary silhouettes for men and women, priced at Rs 2,500.

Web of Yarn is the brain child of Shubha, who has been in the field of design for over a decade now. “The label’s USP is the feel of the fabric on the skin, hand woven, natural yarn dyed , craft adopted, organic cotton, hand spun Khadi with Ahimsa silk,” says Shubha, who was earlier designing under the lable Surya.

The other highlights of the label are unisex stoles in handwoven merino wool with eeri silk and naturally dyed.

Shubha has been working closely with cluster groups of craftspersons in Madhya Prdesh and Uttarakhand. The focus of ‘A Web of Yarn’ has been to revive and keep alive some of the ancient traditions of textiles in rural India.

The designs will be on display between July 25 and 31 at The Amethyst Room, at Chamiers, New no 106, Old no 79, Chamiers Road. Contact 43042099 for more details.
