A one-of-a-kind embroidered wall-art piece handmade by the talented female weavers of Gujarat, India. Created using small scraps of upcycled fabrics, these pieces embody the marriage of contemporary design with traditional craft, and come complete with a certificate of authenticity.

Story

This collective works with over eighty women artisans from more than seven different villages. Step-by-step and stitch-by-stitch they have built a community of artisans and created a structure to keep them creating.

These tapesries are an amalgamation, a union of two, past and future. It is an interpretation of age old legacies. An erudite conversation in a language fading away. A manifestation of global sensibilities rooted in Indian traditions.

Every tapestry creation is formed out of a slow, meditative process and anchored in the strength of an unwavering relationship with their makers.

Weavers of Gujarat

A dynamic design studio based in Gujarat, India, this collective of over 80 female artisans from more than seven different villages was founded in 2019. Born out of an ever-growing reverence for Indian craft and a taste for contemporary design, this collective is truly a creative amalgamation––a union of the past and the future.

This craft collective creates hand embroidered textiles as a way to tell a deep and profoundly Indian craft story. Based on the tenets of ethical and local sourcing, artisan co-creation, zero waste, and employing women in underserved rural areas, this collaborative process fosters a value-chain that uplifts the livelihoods of these expert artisans and celebrates their traditional craft practices. The values of this co-op are truly aligned with our own key principles at Obakki.

Every creation that is born from the hands of these talented women is formed out of a slow, meditative process that is anchored in the strength of community with a reverence for intentional, generational design.
