Odisha has a rich tradition of producing handloom commodities. The state’s hand woven textiles have an unparalleled depth, range, strength and vigor. Keeping sustainability in mind I see enormous potential for the Fashion Industry in this temple city Bhubaneswar in particular & the state in the wider frame. With the superior artistic age old craftsmanship of the state sky is the limit for intricate, eco-friendly & mindful creations.

We are putting in our sincere efforts to create a more sustainable and equitable fashion industry by promoting the use of Odisha handloom through deliberately educating our students & continuously exposing them to the weaving hubs of the state.
