A small karkhana (workshop) in Ahmedabad, India where skilled artisans patiently stitch elaborate designs for exclusive designer sarees.

Initially Tufan didn't want to let me film their shop because they were embroidering for brand name designers and (understandably) did not want to put his business at risk. After some pleading that I was just making a personal documentary short film about the art, he eventually let me film and also brought out some of their best work. He was kind, helpful and even a bit shy during the interview. I was happy to showcase some amazing work and talent.
