From the ancient textile techniques preserved by Porgai Artisans to the innovative, purpose-driven ethos of The Stitching Project, their intertwined narratives embody resilience, empowerment, and sustainability.

These communities defy the tide of mass production, celebrating the enduring power of handmade craftsmanship to unite, empower, and inspire. Each stitch carries stories of pride, endurance and harmony woven into the very fabric of their creations, encouraging us to explore the rich tapestry of contemporary craft and the transformative potential of art.

Visit us to enjoy: A photo exhibit and display of traditional pieces from the Lamdadi tribe in Sitillingi Tamil Nadu; the textile artworks from their Porgai 2023 at home residency program. / A quilt exhibit by the Stitching Ladies of The Stitching Project Pushkar./ A schedule of themed talks and craft workshops and the movie screening "Porgai (Pride)|A film on the revival of Lambadi art" with Porgai visiting artisans Thaikulam and Vaideshwari , director of Porgai artisans Dr Lalitha Regi and consulting designer and curator Anshu Arora (Details to be advised)
