RJ Beula and RJ Vijaya of Radio Active 90.4 MHz were at the fine hand block-printing workshop organised by Tharangini in Sadashivanagar on 13 May 2017. The event was held in celebration of 40 years of the organisation promoting the ideas of Indian artisanship, textiles, and eco-friendly production, one of the very few such initiatives remaining in our city today. All dyes are eco-friendly and made in-house.
Many of the artisans have been with Tharangini for nearly 2 – 3 decades. Padmini Govind speaks about the history and various activities of Tharangini – a textile unit that was started by her mother in Bengaluru in 1977.
