When we create and curate weaving designs, we keep in mind a global and contemporary sense of aesthetics where tradition meets modernity, boundless by time, trends, age and gender.
When we work directly with 950+ weavers and artisans across India, not only are we bridging the gap between a producer and consumer, we're also investing in our local communities.
GOING SLOW, GOING GREEN
We adopt a thoughtful approach in designing and sourcing our weaves which are handwoven natural fibres, doused in chemical-free dyes, with the least intervention of machinery. We are the opposite of fast fashion, constantly pushing ourselves to reduce our carbon footprint.
We intend to bring to the forefront, the forgotten and lesser-known weaves which are at the cusp of dying, thereby safeguarding livelihoods of these weaving communities and preserving their craft.
We aim to offer exclusivity via design intervention. Advika, an amalgamation of pure art forms, is our cross-cluster initiative which allows us to experiment with traditional motifs and techniques from different craft clusters.

Grateful that people with work ethics as clean as you exist. When I place an order with Bunavat, I have no doubts on the quality, service or the authenticity. There's a blind faith. I wish this was true for everything in life. Clean and reliable!
KATHIK: THE STORYTELLER
Every new handloom cluster that we travel to, clueless and empty-handed, we are warmly welcomed with wide open arms and smiling faces, we are sent back with a new home and suitcase full of intriguing stories. These journeys compel us to turn into storytellers, take you with us and tell tales of the weaves and their creators.
