A leap of Faith
Deep in the heart of rural Bengal, we convinced a single weaver in a weaving village to challenge the conservative Jamdani motifs and trust our experimental innovative designs. His initial hesitation quickly made way for enthusiasm and set the tone for what is today the unconventional ‘Karomi Jamdani’.
Design driven Jamdani
Strength to Strength
Today, we work with several weaving clusters in Bengal. What makes Karomi Jamdani unconventional is its artistic approach to design. Modern in spirit, rooted in tradition, a multifaceted studio bridges the gap from village to market. Thus, making the leap from sustaining the craft and villages, to dressing the chic, sophisticated, environmentally conscious consumer.
Over the years, apart from weaving, we have grown to work with other crafts such as hand-block printing and kantha embroidery. In recognition of innovation and quality in handloom weaving, Karomi received the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts in 2012 and 2014.
Here for good
Our dream is to keep evolving and innovating in the field of handmade textiles, while empowering the artisans and catering to ethical and eco-friendly luxury handloom fashion.
