Delhi Crafts Council would like to invite you to the inauguration of “ 20 years of Sarees of India” at Aga Khan Hall on 17th October 2019 at 10.30 am. Our Chief Guest this year is Smt. Jaya Jaitly, founder Dastkari Haat Samiti.
This is the fifteenth year that we will present the Sutrakar Samman – an award for excellence in weaving from a particular region. Through this award, we seek to celebrate our rich textile heritage and honour excellence in traditional weaving skills while encouraging a commitment towards the continuity of the craft. This year the Samman will be presented to Master Weaver S. Saravanan from Kanchipuram for excellence in weaving Kanjeevaram sarees.
Also in the small hall we have a collection of Natural Dye sarees by artisans who had participated at the the Natural Dye Workshop held in December 2018.
