After spending much of 2010 traveling through India, designer Arati Rao established Tantuvi, while reconnecting with her ancestral roots and cultivating a relationship with India's hand-loom textile traditions.
Tantuvi works with Ikat weavers in South India reinterpreting traditional patterns and weaves of the region and dhurrie weavers of North India for our flat weave rugs. By working collaboratively with our hand-loom co-operatives, we help sustain the artisans and craft to preserve their intimate traditions of hand spun, dyed, and woven cottons and silks of the Eastern Ghats and Rajasthan. Through the co-operative women are being trained in all aspects of weaving. Although men still dominate positions of master weaver and dyer, more women are weaving and contributing to the process. Our hope is to provide income for women and enable future generations the chance for improved education and a stable livelihood.
Our line of rugs launched in 2016, a collaboration between artist Adam Sipe and designer Arati Rao, the debut collection was inspired by early experiments in formal abstract animation.
Tantuvi, which translates to weaver in Sanskrit, is committed to supporting weavers who, using centuries old looms and techniques, continue to pass down their trade. We hope to conserve this rich culture and delicate community.
