Ms. Gunjan Jain


Gunjan Jain is a Delhi based textile/craft designer working with handmade textiles and crafts in rural India since 2008. ‘Conservation through Creativity’ became her mantra which one can see in her work with several craft projects she has been a part of ever since, that involved going to the grassroot level and collaborating directly with weavers and artisans. She specialises in Odisha weaves under her social enterprise & textile label ‘Vriksh Designs’. Gunjan was awarded the ‘Vogue India Fashion Fund for Designer of the Year’ under the saree category in 2016 and UNESCO award for ‘Significant Innovation in Traditional Textiles’ in 2022. For Gunjan, working with craftspeople has been a discovery of herself, her art and a way of life.
