WeTransfer made this beautiful documentary where they meet the talented clothes maker, Surya Giri.
In this doc named Looms we’re taken inside the world of dressmaking and weaving. Surya is a pro and runs his own company with his mum Bindu. They’re renown for their incredible pieces and have made a serious name for themselves in the fashion world. Despite the country having a long history of design and being the birthplace of many iconic patterns, India is often overlooked by big European fashion houses.
Surya shows us all of the ways that he’s managed to stand out from the crowd and has got the world to pay attention to his stunning pieces. One of the ways that he’s innovated the craft is by turning music into patterns on a computer and then replicating those patterns in real life on the loom. It allows him to create looms that are truly unique. It’s a great doc that shows us some of the talent that’s coming out of India. Could Surya kick start a new era of design on the sub-continent? Watch this space.
