A Little about Balwaar
Balwaar brings to you handwoven and handmade products from the vibrant villages of Punjab.
We are working on the revival of the 'Punjab Bridal Duree' and handspun 'Khes', handloom fabric & fine embroidery.
These are traditionally part of a bride's trousseau and woven by the women of the family.
We collect and collate these designs and train rural women to weave them in standard sizes and colourfast yarns in a bid to make them marketable.
In this way we hope to give these women financial independence, social relevance, as well as keep alive a beautiful craft.
