In the first stage of a unique education exchange that began in May, each student’s pattern was made from hand-woven silk and shown at New Zealand Fashion Week. Now these patterns will be re-created in India, but their pattern will be gifted to the students at Bannari Amman Institute of Technology for ongoing learning about New Zealand design. In exchange, the New Zealand students will learn about the ancient heritage of Indian textile production first-hand.
