NEERU KUMAR
A whole new vocabulary in textile design

In the world of handcrafted textiles, Neeru Kumar is a rare and inspired talent, who has, over the past three decades pioneered something of a revolution in Indian textiles.
Using traditional techniques and indigenous materials, but with constant experimentation and research, Neeru has created a whole new vocabulary in textile design.

 

The combination of her unique sensibility, especially in tone and texture, with her profound knowledge of the weaving process and other textile techniques, as well as her commitment to support the craft sector has made such innovation possible.


Through her prodigious output she has generated an exciting and original, extremely contemporary, design palette, while at the same time pushing forward the frontiers of the traditional skills on which her work is based.

 

Neeru’s label covers a range of products including shawls, scarves, ready to wear garments and home furnishings.
Neeru’s textiles have been described as “collectible antiques of the future”.
