Yali, is a platform that sustains commercial projects that develop from the research and documentation work of The Registry of Sarees.
Our team at Yali is actively pursuing cotton based projects that emerge from the research work being done at The Registry of Sarees. There are five ongoing research projects at this point in time, all stemming from The Meanings, Metaphor collectionthat is being studied at the research and study centre. These include sarees and textiles woven using natural coloured BrownCotton (Karnataka), Kodiyala (Karnataka), Venkatagiri (Andhra Pradesh), Ponduru (Andhra Pradesh) and Nabadwip (West Bengal).
It is our objective to maintain complete transparency of all stakeholders from yarn to consumer – so that we can make a radical difference both to the people who create handlooms and to the people who embrace handlooms.
