Himalayan Weaves

Sunita Bali
Get Direction

Sunita Bali, a graduate of Art from the Sir JJ School of Art works with weavers in remote areas of Himachal Pradesh, India. She travels across long distances to work with weavers at the grass root providing design intervention and product diversification to them.

Living and working amongst thick forests, lakes, rivers and the Himalayan Mountains, inspired Sunita to convert her surroundings, on to the looms on which she works. She has also been deeply inspired by the art of Nicholas Roerich, the Russian artist who lived and worked in Himachal Pradesh and who is a master of mountain landscapes.

Her woven art includes lofty snow-capped mountains, Tibetan monasteries with prayer flags, lakes, water falls, trees and forests.

Ms Bali, in her professional capacity works as a design consultant with the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India. She runs the government project for the preservation and promotion of traditional weaving techniques in the district of Kullu, Himachal Pradesh, India.
