Keeping the weaving traditions of Kullu alive

Weaving, vegetable dying and knitting are some of the major export industries for Kullu, a small capital town wedged in between the mountains of the Himalayas.

But as generations pass these traditions could potentially be lost, due to competition with fast fashion industry and the younger generations pursuing other professions.

Global Studios, a field trip subject offered at the University of Technology Sydney, invited a group of a dozen design students to travel to Kullu and learn some of these practices first hand.


  • Alana Clifton-Cunningham – Lecturer in the School of Design at the University of Technology Sydney.
  • Raelene Carter – Design student at the University of Technology Sydney.
  • Kanishk – Managing Director of Kullu Karishma.
