JOURNEY OF OUR CRAFTERS
Subramanyam Garu as he is lovingly called is not just any other master weaver from Venkatagiri. He is one of the last remaining expert Jamdani weavers that works in the traditional style and has become an entrepreneur for the well-being of the craft and the people working in it.
Patnam Subramanyam gained recognition through the portraits and illustrations he makes on the loom with extreme precision and life-like resemblance.
He is presently working towards reviving the fine cotton sarees of Venkatagiri, experimenting with higher counts like 120s and 140s and using real zari, a feat that hasn’t been done in Venkatagiri for over 50 years.
