ANVAYA |

Savitha Suri is a Communications professional whose keen interest in textiles and crafts led her to create ANVAYA- a social media platform to learn, share and explore textile and craft traditions from across the world. ANVAYA documents diverse traditions and histories of not just the textiles and crafts but also of the people and places that they belong to. Believing that the only way to keep traditional crafts alive is by making information about them, and wherever possible even the product, available to the layperson, ANVAYA also works with small, independent weavers and artisans by teaching them digital literacy skills that help them access the online marketplace directly. ANVAYA believes that the route to developing sustainable livelihoods for artisans starts with mindful consumers and to this end, conducts workshops & trails that encourage exploration and understanding of socio-cultural contexts in which arts and crafts thrive, or perish.
