Nayaab strives for excellence and believes in celebrating the best of Indian weaves through curating the best works to showcase the wonders of Indian textiles. This edition of Nayaab focuses on the dyeing traditions of Indian textiles and highlights the edge of design and skill.

“We are one year old and it has been a great journey. We endeavour to move away from the watered down textile crafts and show case the more difficult laborious, old, complicated traditional skills being produced by revivalists who are dedicated to the pursuit of these exceptional skills. We aim to create an exceptional exhibition and are anticipating great response like the previous year,” remarks Rupa Sood, Co-curator, Nayaab.
