New Delhi, September 9
The G20 Summit has given an opportunity to weavers to showcase their handloom art at the Bharat Mandapam International Exhibition and Convention Centre.
A fascinating handloom artwork contemplating intricate craftsmanship has been exhibited at the Convention Centre.
Neelam Kaushik working as a Junior Assistant in Weavers’ Service Centre Delhi is drawing attention to her cushion covers developed from Spun Silk yarns with the help of interlock technique.
She has 25 years of experience in weaving different items like bedsheets, cushion covers, and woolen shawls.
Neelam Kaushik says, “The handloom clothes which we wear are made using a loom. I have come here at the G20 summit to showcase cushion covers developed with Spun Silks by interlock technique. In this, we have to increase and decrease each thread. I wish to showcase this at G20. Recently we had Handloom Day and PM Modi encouraged us and we have confidence that the handloom industry would flourish in the future. Currently power looms are being used but handloom will survive in the future.”
The cushion Cover developed with Spun Silk yarns is inspired by the geometrical theme.
“It has a multi-colored triangular pattern in the whole body developed by insertion of different color yarn manually with interlock technique,” Kaushik said.
