Bengal textiles and traditions in new year time

Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay had set up Crafts Council of India in 1964 as a movement inspired by Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore to look at the production of handicrafts and textiles as a catalyst for social change. The organisation would not be a patron, but a facilitator for the artisans, the makers of crafts and textiles, in whose hands lie the artistry and the skills to make the objects that preserve the country's heritage.

The first Kamala store, the retail outfit of Crafts Council of India, was set up in Delhi in 2005. The next Kamala was set up in Calcutta in 2008. Chennai got a store in 2017.

In 10 years, Kamala in Calcutta has established itself as the address where one finds the finest handloom saris. Kamala collects handlooms from all parts of India, but as Nava Varsha approaches, here we feature Kamala's collection of Bengal saris.
