Started in 2017, WeaveinIndia was a humble attempt at revitalizing the traditional Indian craftsmanship of handloom. Instead what resulted was a fashion revolution with the people world over taking toward sustainable and mindful clothing choices.
Today, WeaveinIndia is synonymous with exquisite handwoven luxury Indian clothing. Driven by a holistic vision of uplifting artisan communities, the brand now identifies and fraternizes with labels alike, in celebrating ancient Indian craft and bringing to you distinguished heirloom in contemporary, tasteful design.
Embracing the journey that’s been, and helming forward, is founder of WeaveinIndia, Designer Mandira Bansal. With alma maters of London School of Fashion and National Institute of Fashion Technology, Chennai, the designer has been in the industry for over 15 years now. Undoubtedly, WeaveinIndia is one of her fondest ventures till date.
With individuality and innovativeness, it’s a long road ahead for her and WeaveinIndia.
The craft for me is as close to my heart as the livelihood of the people behind it. With a Bachelor's in fashion design from NIFT and a Fashion management degree from London School of Fashion, I had my fair measure of being consumed by international vogue.
It was in the middle of 2016 that I'd discovered the craft of handloom and realized that India had its own stories to tell the world. And that's when WeaveinIndia began to take shape in my mind. I did extensive research on the craft and morale behind it. I found it inspiring and enkindling; six months later, WeaveinIndia was born.
It's been two years now, and has already proved to be a learning curve even as a designer of 15 years of experience in the industry. Our efforts to bring handloom into the wardrobe of the everyday man and woman has been met with their fascination for the craft.
It's safe to say that as a connoisseur of handloom, WeaveinIndia is at a gratifying point where the craft has admirers from the young and old alike."
