Be Relaxed with Khesh in this SUMMER

Khesh is a new kind of designer saree made with some old sarees in a new concept. Basically originating from Birbhum district of West Bengal, it is now available to the all the places of Bengal. 

Because of the tradition of Khesh weaving in Birbhum in the last many years, a market for old sarees has come up in some nominated places of Birbhum. The Weavers bought old saress in bulk or else they have their own suppliers who collect old saress from the village and wash them ready to sell. Many other weavers depend on householders to give them sarees in return of something essential households items. 

Mechanism:

The Khesh weaving process is simple. The warp is with new yarn and the weft is with strips of thin cloth obtained by tearing old sarees length wise. First a old saree is picked, washed, cleaned. Then the saree or the cloth is separated thread by thread and then kept along with the other yarn kept for to weave a new saree. As the new saree is being weaved the old pieces are picked up randomly and it makes a beautiful design. Its given a symmetry. Then the sarees are given touch of either fabric paints or applique to make it more appealing. It is total handloom saree and 100% cotton. It is ideal for daily use. It can be home washed. 

It is hereby mention that the old sarees have to be of cotton in order that they tear easily. Experiments using synthetic sarees have also been undertaken, since the propensity to wear synthetic sarees is on the rise even in villages. But the problem with synthetic sarees is that they cannot be torn by hand and have to be cut by scissors. This increases the time for this process and therefore the cost. 

Art Hut also brought some colorful and gorgeous design in Khesh based on Tant in vibrant colour and design. it is best sarees in Summer to wear and ladies get more pleasure wearing this saree in this scorching heat. Need your feedback regarding our collections of Khesh.

Spectacular Art Installations of 2016

Year after year, we are impressed by the inventive and imaginative art installations that pop up in museums, streets, and natural landscapes around the world. From sculptural works and found objects to light art and projections, installation pieces play with space to challenge our traditional perceptions of art engagement.

Like last year, 2016 has seen a wide range of beautiful, fascinating, and poignant installations. While 2015’s top works indicated a trend toward dazzling, kaleidoscopic color, this year’s best installations are a bit more eclectic and conceptual, presenting an array of aesthetics and unique undertones.

Take a peek at our favorite installations below.

JR au Louvre by JR

Using photographic prints, French street artist JR camouflaged I.M. Pei’s iconic glass pyramid at the world-famous Musée du Louvre in Paris. When viewed from a precise angle, the structure appears to vanish, revealing the façade of the stunning palace-turned-museum.

The Floating Piers by Christo

Contemporary conceptual artist Christo is renowned for his pioneering land art. For his latest site-specific project, The Floating Piers, Christo created a series of bright yellow paths that invites residents and visitors of Sulzano, Italy, to commute to its neighboring islands on foot. Like all of Christo’s installations, the local landscape of The Floating Piers plays an important role in its concept. “The mountains surrounding the lake will offer a bird’s-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unnoticed angles and altering perspectives,” he explained. “The water, the wind, the sun – all this is part of the project.”

Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku by Bruce Munro

While British artist Bruce Munro has created various versions of Field of Light, a large-scale, luminous work, it wasn’t until 2016 that he finally installed a light installation on the site that inspired it all—Uluru, a sandstone monolith in Australia. Titled Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku (“looking at lots of beautiful lights” in Pitjantjatjara, the local language of the region’s Aboriginal people) the dazzling display is on view until 2017.

Culture plays an important role in the development of any nation. It represents a set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices. Culture and creativity manifest themselves in almost all economic, social and other activities. A country as diverse as India is symbolized by the plurality of its culture.
India has one of the world’s largest collections of songs, music, dance, theater, folk traditions, performing arts, rites and rituals, paintings and writings that are known, as the ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage’ (ICH) of humanity. In order to preserve these elements, the Ministry of Culture implements a number of schemes and programs aimed at providing financial support to individuals, groups and cultural organizations engaged in performing, visual and literary arts etc.

Hope! – a little package

Hope sometime comes in a little package and that little package will grow properly with the believes of changing the hope into realty.  

I am using the social media, specially facebook, for last 3/4 years and i was just using the same for some specific features like chatting, uploading and checking the news feeds. it was beyond my imagination that something creative also can be done through the social media also and i thought to do something online. In one of my previous article I mentioned that my mother, Aruna Ganguly started a boutique few years back to stand on her own feet. Read Here.

But after using the facebook for 10.00 to 7.00 daily for some recreation purpose i became bored about it and then i thought that i need to do something which will make some positivism  for me and for my desire. I thought to put some value to the life, to do something which will be dual beneficial. Then i came to know about blogging and other social media also like twitter but from the college days i was less interested about technical aspects. So i did not get good marks in my Computer Science course where i was always developed wrong programming in C or C+. Actually i never got interest in some code, # or @ or ;. So programming in C or C+ was looking like rocket science to me. But i have some desire to do something for the society and for that first I have to set myself in a strong platform as without proper platform, nobody will give value to my thought and in this days one’s word never make any sense to others until there are some proofs. I thought and thought and then i decided to use my mom’s business as platform. My mom is getting old and the business should be taken care as now i believe that business is the only alternative parallel economy which will help me to survive in the near future.

I created a page of Art Hut. Started to display the boutique items and with that i thought to share the stories of art and culture. To me, just selling one product or selling in bulk may make some quick money but that never put confidence to my prospect or my page lover. Rather it will be more realistic if i share the story of a Rajasthani woman is fighting to stand on her own feet, a story of a common man who is doing embroidery to earn the bread and butter for his family. Actually i believe that promoting a product with a story or history of the same make some positive effect to the readers or buyers, a proper mix up of story with object. There should be some correlation between the artistry and the usage of that artistry.

With all these i am interested to know that what is happening where and discovered that blogging is the best way to know those and with this I can spread my words to the rest of the world with the help of blog. I can express my thought, my feelings to the world where may be someone is also thinking in the same way. I want to connect more people to get some unique idea and to portray art hut in different manner. I am also fond of some quality follower of mine who will like my exposure but not for any technical reason.

Last but not the least is to make a famous brand of my boutique and my thought. I dream that one day Art Hut will be the name of only one stop shopping for every Indian and after that it will be International. Starting from a small cottage it will be advertise in the city of Las Vegas one day. Yesss, it is my dream and dream will only be successful when the strong desire behind the same is there. I need more and more support from every readers, followers and others to nurture me and expecting that i will reach the sky which is also not my limit.
