Tantuvi, which translates to weaver in Sanskrit, is committed to supporting weavers who, using centuries old looms and techniques, continue to pass down their trade. We hope to conserve this rich culture and delicate community.
Tantuvi works with 7th generation dhurrie weavers of North India for our flat weave rugs and Ikat weavers in South India for our textiles, reinterpreting traditional patterns and weaves of the region. By working collaboratively with hand-loom co-operatives, we help sustain the artisans and craft to preserve their intimate traditions of hand spun, dyed, and woven cottons and silks of the Eastern Ghats and Rajasthan. Through the co-operative women are being trained in all aspects of weaving. Although men still dominate positions of master weaver and dyer, more women are weaving and contributing to the process. Our hope is to provide income for women and enable future generations the chance for improved education and a stable livelihood.
Our hemp rugs can be vacuumed without a beater bar to prevent the fiber from being pulled. Spot clean with cold water and if there are any solid food spills we recommend letting it dry and then removing with a dull knife. If a liquid is spilled, blot the area before cleaning and drying.
-100% Hemp, hemp is naturally anti-bacterial so this fiber can be used outdoors in a covered area as well.
