Inspired from jala weaving of Chhattishgarh, Bebaak has developed this collection. Taking an extra step in design development we have focused on creating small buta. The Jala weaving is complicated and intrinsic weaving process. In this weaving process one extra weft is used make woven motifs. Motif development on loom through weaving required a well pre planned designs on graphs paper as each motif is crafted with proper count and arithmetic. We have opted for three motifs, round floral, lotus, and geometry in the jala weaving.
Jagriti bunker samiti is based in Bhanwarpur, Mahasamund district of Chhattisgarh. It is decades old weaving cluster having expertise in jala weaving and buta work. Earlier weavers of this cluster used to do cotton weaving but now considering the high profit in silk they are drifting toward kosa silk weaving as well. Most crucial thing about the current status of this cluster is that many weavers are migrating to other jobs due to irregular income generation through weaving and many weavers prefer to weave kora plain cotton, the order given by government body as it assures regular income generation. Weavers a quite skilled and have expertise in their craft, kora plain weaving is kind of regressive move that will lead to demise their skill.
Intervention of Bebaak
We have done some textile design development with the weaving cluster considering their expertise in Jala work. Our intervention has been done on cotton weaving. The reason we have opted for cotton fabric and jala work are
• Cotton is one of the most versatile textiles and suits to Indian scenario. The weavers need to see the possibilities of the cotton woven by them.
• While they can weave solid, checks and stripes, we found jala work is quite exclusive and elegant that can be the point of difference for this cluster.
• In buta work they have been weaving old traditional motif that required to restructure.
We at Bebaak want to experiment with the possibility of work with this cluster in long-term that include many factors such as quality, versatility, perseverance of weavers to work on the new thing.
