"We use heritage techniques like handloom weaving, block-printing to make modern and handcrafted textiles for everyday living"
Soil to Studio, established in late 2019, is an expression of my passion and creativity. Born and raised in a small town of Udaipur in India, I was exposed to various crafts by my mother and grandmother. My summer vacations were spent drawing, painting and embroidering bedspreads. Though I chose finance as my career and became a banker, the need to express myself through handmade textiles, paper etc. did not ever leave me. I was always drawn to nature and open spaces with beautiful aesthetics and found inspiration in those.
After more than a decade of corporate job, I now follow my passion and fully dedicate myself to working with the craft communities in India, learning about various weaving and printing techniques and applying those to my creations. Through my creations, I want to give a glimpse of modern and urban India to the world and make handmade luxury accessible to all.
Soil to Studio is and will remain a journey – for me as an artist and designer, for the craftsmen it seeks to celebrate and for the products that we seek to bring to our customers." Swati Bansal
