Kalsi has worked for over two decades with Indian artisans, as part of international social development projects, as well as within her own fashion atelier. Her research focuses on how Indian crafts – from embroidery to weaving, dyeing, or leatherwork – might prosper in a time where technological progress and mechanisation render handiwork precarious. How can artisans adapt, what is lacking in their training, and what tools are needed to create self-sustaining systems of knowledge exchange to ensure the future of these living traditions?
