Our Take on Parsi Gara
NIFT Mumbai in association with Zari Embroideries Started working on the Parsi Gara Embroidery Project under USTTAD to conduct workshops in Mumbai and Ahmedabad for the revival study of this craft. Our studio organised information on the Parsi Community, Demonstrations of the Parsi Gara Embroidery to artisans and conducted a talk on its current existence .
This project aims at reviving handlooms and hand work through design intervention and product diversification thus reviving many lost age-old traditions and keep them alive as a part of our culture and heritage of our country.
The workshops aim at infusing the value of this craft and teaching the artisans how to sustain its originality and work towards its existence. We are working towards making this craft come back to the market’s demand and supply cycle, thus rejuvenating it.
