Project Description

Lead Designer , Export Strategy Consultant

Client: Ministry of Textiles & Kanhirode Weaver’s Cooperative, Kerala

The Kanhirode Weaver’s Cooperative has been a key producer of high quality cotton textiles providing employment to hundreds of families in the area. The cooperative is best known for its high quality dyeing practices.

The Ministry of Textiles has supported and funded this Export Promotion Project at the Cooperative to improve their product portfolio for new markets. The project involved assessing their current skills and strengths of this cooperative and coming up with a design strategy to reach out to new markets.

40 unique design collections of home textiles were produced for this project which were woven subsequently and presented at various international fairs.
