Pravin's grandfather is a Shilp Guru in weaving.

Pravin went to college and was more interested in computers. But two years ago he began weaving. He didn't really have to learn it. "Weaving is my life," he says. “It is culture, sanskar, and a means to livelihood.”

Pravin wants to do something new, and feels that design education gives weavers space to think. In 2015, he studied at Somaiya Kala Vidya. For his 2016 collection, he wove complex saris, stoles, shawls and mufflers with the theme "Old is Evergreen."

Pravin shares this year's award for Best Presentation. Pravin used innovative ikat yarns, engineered shapes and cheerful warm colours to encourage a fresh look at Bhujodi weaving.
