Home Blog Megastores.Com Team with Vankar Vishram Valji (National Award Winner) for Weaving Art from Bhujodi, Kutch

Master Craftsman Vankar Shamji Vishram oversees a multigenerational weaving and dyeing business in Kutch. A simple shawl that involves only weaving can take about two days to create and at least 5-6 shawls of the same model will be weaved each time, making a minimum weaving stint last for at least 10 to 12 days.

Shawls with intricate designs can take months on end. It was one such magnificently patterned Dhablo or shawl that Vishram Valji, Ramji's father worked on for an entire year that won him the President's award in 1974. It is the Ahir dhablo that was the design inspiration behind Vishram Valji's award-winning piece.
