Design Craft > Members > Prakash Naranbhai Siju DC Profile

Prakash is of the 7th generation in a weavers family of Bhujodi. They are one of the very few families who traditionally make flat weave carpets. Prakash studied to 10th Standard and completed a one year course in electrical training. But he preferred to join his father in the family business. He learned carpet weaving from his father, and now has nearly a decade of experience.

Prakash believes that by applying creative skills and making exclusive products, he can capture high end and export markets.

In 2008, he studied at Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya. He graduated with the award for Most Promising Artisan.

After graduating, Prakash received a very long term order from an international client. He wove a limited series of patterns in quantity, occasionally supplementing these with his own work.

Today, he is making a concerted effort to develop and market his own designs.
