Profiles of textile Artisans in Kutch, Gujarat, India Report

We are happy & proud to share with you the report of our international partner Cultural IP Rights Initiative: Profiles of textile Artisans in Kutch, Gujarat, India. A synopsis of the Report is available here: Synopsis

The innovative character of this field study stems from the cross-disciplinary approach and the exclusive focus on the textile artisan as right-holder.

The cultural perspective merges with a legal perspective and a business perspective so that the artisan is not reduced to a pion in the textile supply chain but viewed as an agent of cultural sustainability.

This Report is an academic resource which can be used in academic settings as well as business frameworks, by designers and textile industry professionals, conscious and culturally aware individuals interested in developing and maintaining sustainable collaborations and engaging in co-creation processes with artisan communities.
