Maku Pop-Up in Basel 11.-12. December 2021 - "Clay"
MAKU, which means "weaving shuttle" in Bengali, is a slow fiber movement that uses only hand-spun and hand-woven cloth, the designs of which are realized in collaboration with artisans on their looms.
MAKU was founded by Santanu Das, a conceptual artist from the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad, that has long been influenced by the testimony of the Indian textile heritage, culture and skills. Santanu has also taken steps towards designing a system to develop a better living environment panning from recycling waste to distribution of wealth to the weaker section of the society.
I met Santanu in 2014 and felt that I had finally found the clothes that my soul had always yearned to wear! Since 2018 I am an integral part of MAKU, contributing to the brainstorming process of fabric and garment design and developing the narrative behind some of the collections. I also manage the whole sale international accounts.
