The term `karigar’, means `artisan’ in Hindustani. It is used to describe someone who is equipped with the specialised skills involved in making things by hand. This knowledge and expertise were usually handed down for generations within a guild or family by skilled karigars who were masters of their craft.
India has a centuries-old art and craft heritage that includes rich textile weaving traditions as well as surface pattern and embellishment techniques like printing, dyeing and embroidery. They impart a unique look and feel to fabric lengths and stitched garments. Indian embroidery traditions involve working intricate designs onto the fabric with delicate cotton, silk, silver and gold metal thread. It was embellished with sequins and precious stones and favoured by royalty to evoke a sense of luxury and opulence.
