I come from the state of Orissa in India, which is well known for its craft heritage. I joined the National Institute of Design (Ahmedabad) as a student of textile design in 1997. During these 4 years of extensive study I was exposed to various textile media and techniques. What initiated my interest in ply split braiding was my fascination for the wonderful seamless garment made by Errol Pires.|
Decorative belts: These are few explorations of POT and SCOT techniques to form decorative belts for young girls.
Climber wall piece: This wall hanging inspired by climbers is made using 4 ply cotton cords where a plaid transforms into free flowing interlaced braids and again return back to its original plaid design.
Entangle wall piece: This strip is made using both POT and SCOT technique where braided strands travel in and out of each other to form this beautiful wall piece.
For any queries please contact me.
