About this event

Maayankraj holds a Masters in the History of Arts from Maharaja Sayaji Rao University, Vadodara. He is pursuing his PhD in ‘The Evolution of Rajput Royal Costumes’, from Kota Open University. In the year 2010, he recorded ‘Oral History of Costume Traditions’ as a written thesis, through extensive travel and research. These endeavors have sensitized him greatly, not just to the nuances of his profession, but also to the seeds of future potential therein.

Maayankraj Singh’s inspiration has been the rich repertoire of hand embroidery traditions of India & Europe and also the regal legacy of one’s family.

Since its inception in 2012, Atelier Shikaarbagh has quietly and steadily consolidated its reputation as a trusted, and beloved purveyor of the finest quality Indian and French chiffon, satin, tissue and georgette Sarees; with occasional custom-designed wedding Poshaks, shawls, and evening gowns.

Maayankraj will discuss the journey of Atelier Shikaarbagh and the culmination of skill under the tenth/eighth generational embroiderers who have worked for the family since 1830s. This talk will also focus on the techniques of transfer work zardozi, Aari and Japanese Badla which form the core of every design of Atelier Shikaarbagh.
