About Ramji Maheshwari
Belonging to a traditional weaver family of Kutch, Ramji learnt the fine art of weaving from his grandfather and father. By the time, he finished his 12th standard his weaving skills were honed and he could set up on his own.
A turning point in his life, was when he settled in a village near Bhuj and came in contact with people from all walks of life including tourists who also had good knowledge and understanding this craft. He was able to understand his strengths and weaknesses and concentrate on his area of improvement.
Ramji realized that knowledge of design was critical and studied the principles of design such as movement, balance, patterns, emphasis, rhythm etc. He learnt to observe nature and study it with a difference, closely studying the design principles prevalent in nature and heritage.
Learning to convert the organic forms in nature to geometric forms was a crucial difference in his approach.
Today, Ramji’s signature work has been appreciated by design gurus all over the world.
