About Nature Alley Janapada Seva Trust.
Nature Alley along with the Khadi Institution in Melkote, Janapada Seva Trust, Khadi Gramodyga is involved in local self -sustenance and economic elevation of the weaker sections of the society.
Spearheaded by Tara Aslam, this group was set up with the primary aim of reviving natural dyed clothing in Khadi, Organic and Handloom fabrics- with a key focus on skill development for weavers and spinners in villages in Karnataka.
The craft clusters nurtured by Nature Alley in Karnataka also work on hand embroidery like “Lambani” embroidery – this is an embroidery by a nomadic tribe of north Karnataka and ‘Kasuti’ embroidery which is a counted thread embroidery native to Karnataka.
The hand patched Kowdhis, while being revivalist, brings out a new twist to an ancient craft form, blending present day stories with those of the bygone.
