The Ghanshyam Sarode story!

Ghanshyam Sarode is a textile designer with a difference who creates contemporary handloom fashion using intricate weaves. Deeply passionate about his work, he travels extensively across India in his search for skilled weavers and having worked with artisans and weavers all over the country, he has unmatched knowledge of traditional craft forms and weaving patterns. His stand apart quality lies in modifying these traditional crafts for the modern consumer yet preserving the richness of the craft and tradition. Inspiring handloom enthusiasts for a period of over 25 years, Sarode has had several successful exhibitions all over the world.

What’s special about Ghanshyam Sarode?

His creations include Pure Zari Uppada sarees, brocaded Paithani sarees, Cotton Jamdani sarees, finest Kalamkaris, natural dyed fabrics, dupattas and exclusive Khadi sarees. During the year 1988 he introduced a variation of an age old weaving technique called Jamdani in a small village named Uppada in Andhra Pradesh and thus emerged a new category of sarees called the ‘Uppada’ Saree.

While Sarode is best known for his pioneering efforts in the Uppada sari, the crown jewel in his portfolio is the restored ‘interlocking brocade’ Paithani. The Paithani saree, a traditional Maharashtrian royal weave worn typically at weddings, is typically a combination of floral motifs along with imagery of swans and peacocks. It is also influenced by Mughal and Bengali architecture and features Ajanta motifs as well as latter-day Nizami influences to form exquisite tapestries. Sarode uses an interlocking Paithani weave—two wefts on different shuttles, where the colour changes, in a technique known as kadiyal and leaves the back of the design so seamless as to make it nearly reversible.
