Shamji learned weaving when he was in 7th standard. After the 2001 earthquake, he left school and for 11 years did job work weaving. Then he wondered, ultimately what will we do? Two years ago he began to work on his own pieces from 6:00-11:00 pm.

Shamji amassed a year of stock to sell, in order to join SKV. He wants to grow. "Handloom is so old," he says. "I believe it will go on as much time into the future."

Shamji explored during his year at SKV, and wove an elegant collection, “Rajvaadi Thaat,” based on the international trend Regal Safari.” He graduated from SKV with a special jury award for his excellent skills.

"We enjoy when we put our heart into it. I believe I can do good designs."
