Vimor @ the Museum of Islamic Art, Qatar
Pavithra was invited to showcase Vimor at the #QatarIndia2019 Year of Culture event. Held at the Museum of Islamic Art, the event had a breathtaking display of sustainable Indian textiles and handlooms. Vimor also set up a loom with our nationally recognized weaver, Mr Bhanumurthy.
45 Years of Vimor
In Nov 2019, we celebrated Vimor’s 45-year journey of conserving handloom inheritance. This 5-day event at the Bangalore International Centre, was woven through a saree exhibition, a series of interactive sessions with handloom experts, curated walks through the exhibits, workshops (for both children & adults) and each day was concluded with a program including a fashion show choreographed by Prasad Bidapa.
Vimor regularly participates in exhibitions and pop-ups across India and the globe. Here are snapshots from our exhibitions in 2019.

The Indira Gandhi Centenary Year Show
Pavithra was invited by the Gandhi family to recreate some of the sarees from Indira Gandhi’s personal collection for the Centenary Year celebrations. Her collection of sarees included pieces from all across the country and Pavithra had just a few hours to spend with the sarees before heading back to recreate them from memory. Here are some memories from the show that was organised at Bikaner House, New Delhi in Nov 2017.
