About the Craft :: Forline Weaving is an initiative by Dayalal Kudecha, a traditional weaver from Gujarat, who with his grit and determination rose from a wage earner to an entrepreneur. Forline is Dayabhai?s enterprise to contemporise traditional kutcchi weaves that are admired while traditional crafts are preserved for generations to appreciate and secure. The specialty of the Kutch weaving tradition is the hand insertion of ornamental supplementary wefts, almost like embroidery. Patterns are inlaid into the handwoven plain weave cloth. Kutch weaving incorporates distinctive traditional motifs and colours in medium to heavyweight textiles in a manner that exceeds aesthetic appeal. Maintaining the ethnic touch, Dayabhai weaves their tradition and way of life into each piece using the same designs with a contemporary approach to making cloth for saris, scarves and shawls.
About the Artist: On experiencing the environment of his traditional art, Dayalal decided to learn weaving. He learned initial techniques from his brother-in-law. Later, he continued to learn by experimentation. Dayabhai worked under a master weaver and earned his livelihood by weaving traditional and contemporary designs for over 25 years. In 2008 he underwent a year-long professional design training at Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya, and learned to innovate within his tradition. He gained confidence to take creative risks that enabled him to start his own enterprise. His achievements include and are not limited to, teaching, live demonstrations, workshops and talks, participation in fashion shows along with his continuous endeavor to focus on weaving exquisite pieces. He has represented India both within the country and internationally.
