Tantavi is a Sanskrit word which means 'of the loom'. It takes form in the classical deep rooted Indian weaves. From here springs forth the Tantavi 2003.
Organised by the National Centre for Textile Design [NCTD], Tantavi 2003 displays 193 yards of handloom fabrics along with the finished products. The fabrics are made by 24 weavers' service centres in India, and the finished products by the National Institute Of Fashion Technology [NIFT], Handicrafts and Handloom Export Corporation of India Ltd. [HHEC] and All India Handloom Fabric Marketing Co-operative Society Ltd. [AIHFMCS]. This exhibition is the 1st of its kind in exhibiting the unique designs developed with natural fibres in different patterns and colors.
Tantavi 2003 aims at projecting the exclusivity of these products, to enhance their visibility and to boost their exports. It also highlights the different varieties of weaves and is aimed at bringing out the inherent strenghts and qualities of traditional hand woven textiles. All in all, aimed at making you a true swadeshi.
