Since its inception on National Handloom Day in August 2015, WeaverStory has garnered recognition for its efforts in heritage textile revivalism and offering an impetus to time-honoured crafts. “Traditional Indian handmade textiles, used to create saris, lehengas, kurtas, dupattas and even co-ord sets, in all its original essence is our USP. We are an artisan and craft centric brand,” reveals Nishant Malhotra, founder of WeaverStory. “Our ‘direct from the weaver’ approach ensures the authenticity and quality of products. WeaverStory’s signature weaves include Kanjeevaram, Patola, Chanderi, Jamdani, Benarasi and Kota,” he elaborates.
“Traditional weaves are a part of our cultural identity, and have been passed down as heirlooms from grandmothers and mothers to daughters as blessings through generations. Indian weaves are not just pieces of exquisite fabric, but they are an amalgamation of the centuries of emotions and traditions. Our most recent bridal collection, ‘Riwayat’ is a range of Benarasi lehengas, each an epitome of luxury, grace and richness of Indian culture. The pieces are further enhanced with age-old embroidery techniques like zardozi and meenakari, making them bridal essentials. Handwoven Benarasi lehengas with motifs, varying from shikarbagh and bel to mamgaai, in a variety of colours and silhouettes will never go out of style,” Nishant shares.
