The fascination behind weaving tradition
Manisha Jhamb, the curator of zameeni, grew up adoring her grandmother’s 6-yard elegance. Even though she belonged to a Punjabi family, she saw women in her family drape sarees rather than wearing traditional Punjabi suits. Fascinated by it, Manisha developed a flair for fabrics and refers to sarees as ‘six yards of beauty.’ Manisha Jhamb is amongst the few who is determined to take this tradition and art ahead, and bring a new dimension to this industry. With her strong passion and key for details, she has launched this brand; zameeni - The perfect blend of modern fashion weaved in traditional art. Her dedication has made her travel all parts of India, walking down to the narrow lanes (gali) of Banaras to the deserted land of Kutch, and selecting the exclusive pieces from every part of the nation.









To revive old and dying arts while uplifting weavers, by giving the right direction and wages to the karigars.


To conserve and promote the heritage craftsmanship, and encompass the changing world around it with remaining consistently true to its innate qualities.
