Sandur Kushala Kala Kendra / University College Falmouth

 Check out our collaboration between Sandur Kushala Kala Kendra (SKKK) and University College Falmouth!

Lambani stitches have been used by the women in India for many many generations, but sadly there are less and less people leaning these skills- the women feel they have no worth and do not want to pass on the tradition. SKKK is an organisation trying to keep these women in work and the skill alive. We have collaborated with them to give them designs for the western market and to play around with other materials. The aim is to encourage the local women by showing them that their skill most definitely has a worth and giving the organisation new designs.

It is all very exciting!
