Chamanlal received the President’s National Award for weaving in 2001. He dyes his own yarns. His interest in natural dyeing evolved from his father’s training in Ahmedabad in 1994, and he trained with master dyers from Dastkar Andhra, and later at a UNESCO workshop in Pondicherry. Chamanlal entered the family weaving business after one year of college. He started his own unit where he has three young apprentices, and made pioneering efforts in the mix of local sheep wool and silk.

In 2006, Chaman studied in the first class of Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya.

Post graduation, Chamanlal has continued to produce striking, saleable weaving. In 2014, he opened an ambitious center for craft, culture and food – Dora n Maani.
