Design Feature > Anek Taanka
Kavita and Shami gifted me a Salman Khan cushion cover, hand-painted by a hoarding artist. It was quirky and very kitsch, and my introduction to Varsha Sharma’s work. But after seeing more of what she does, I am partial to her weaves and threads and fabrics. A graduate in Textile Design from NID, she started Anek Taanka a couple of years ago. Anek Taanka means infinite stitches. And her work is filled with it. She says “my challenge is to create pieces of textile that could inspire spaces to be designed around them rather than the other way around.” It is a big promise to make and I do hope that she does so, it would be wonderful to experience such a thing. Here are some of my picks of her work.
Blinds and Curtains
The product line at Anek Taanka includes beddings, bedspreads, cushions, curtains, drapes, tablewear, mats, runners and accessories like bags, lampshades. Apart from this Varsha works with architects and interior designers, and also does fabric wall art, murals, fabric sculptures and customised home furnishings for residences, hotels and restaurants.
