Welcome to our world of weaves! Our love for weaves and hues has taken a different turn altogether – from avid shoppers, we are now advocates of these dying forms of art.
Promoting sustainable, ethical and timeless fashion, Bunavat brings you a collection of handcrafted textiles, and as the name suggests, directly from the ‘weaver’. To curate this collection of yarns and yardages for you, we travel into weaving communities across India. Through our travel tales, we take you with us on that unique journey to the origin of the weave and its weaver. ‘Kathik’ means ‘storyteller’ and these journeys have indeed turned us into one!
At Bunavat, we aim to not only become the bridge between the weaving community and you, but also consolidate knowledge regarding the diverse range of Indian textiles and the weaving practices, to allow you to appreciate these intricate art forms. ‘Tantukatha’ or the story of weaves, is a constantly growing repository of Indian textiles.
With every purchase at Bunavat, you are one step closer to contributing to the bigger cause of supporting the weaving communities and empowering their generations to come. A part of our profits will go into funding community development programs in these weaving clusters. It is extremely perturbing to see the living conditions of our weavers and their families. Through our focused and customized programs for the communities, we are determined to break this cycle of poverty and ignorance.
We look forward to your patronage and are hopeful of your support in our mission of empowering the weaving community!
We hope you will enjoy our collection as much as we did putting it together for you. So start your journey into the world of weaves!
