India’s handloom sector has always been an integral part of our rich cultural heritage. It proudly reflects an extensive array of textiles, diverse artistic inheritance, and the infallible prowess of Indian weavers.
The most elegant and striking handwork amongst all?
Undoubtedly, the alluring Khunn (or Guledgudda Khana) of Karnataka! Pairing this intricate honeycomb-like brocade with an Ilkal saree is a fashion statement on its own.
However, as the globalization wave emerged, it started plaguing the mill sector. It tagged along drawbacks like antiquated technology and inefficient marketing capability. The khunn weavers too felt this jolt resulting in closing down of mills and refusal of younger generations to carry on their age-old family tradition of weaving.
Nonetheless, India Imprints came up with this motive of bringing back these brilliant khunn weavers. We have endeavored to bridge the gap and take their works to an open platform where people can show gratitude towards their efforts by accepting the products.
