fibres and experimented extensively with textiles A craft revivalist and textile conservationist Jain is credited with crafting unique textiles In the past she has blended Andhra ikat with that from Odisha and has also combined elements from Thailand and Gujarat’s patola to make a double ikat As her eponymous label completes 29 years Jain has launched a new collection inspired by the ikats of Uzbekistan The collection was launched recently at Ogaan the multi-designer store in Delhi The designer spoke about her journey this far her new collection and plans to commemorate her 30th anniversary Edited excerpts: Looking back how would you describe your personal journey in developing textiles Textiles are my passion which has taken me to the remotest villages in India and Bangladesh to source the most beautiful organic and unique textile traditions that were getting lost due to the rising demand for machine-made textiles In Bangladesh I worked with BRAC the largest NGO in the world; on Nakshikantha and Dhaka muslin to save these almost endangered textiles Similarly in 2003 I was instrumental in introducing an alternative textile bamboo fibre in India Currently I am working on Central Asian influences on ikat and how to weave those into Indian sensibilities Your latest collection in ikat is inspired by Uzbekistan How did this come about From ancient times the world has been linked by trading routes and textiles In the 19th century the Central Asian regions of Bukhara and Samarkand (now Uzbekistan) were famous for fine silk and cotton ikat Uzbekistan royals and rich merchants wore ikat coats as it exemplified power status and wealth I wanted to take this ancient ‘cultural exchange’ to a new level by combining Uzbek motifs with that of ours While Indian ikat uses traditional motifs based on nature and temple themes Uzbek-based ikat has abstract geometrical and floral themes My latest collection is a happy marriage of the two traditions What are your views on the textile wave sweeping the country currently as an increasing number of designers are working with Indian textiles Personally it makes me happy that Indian textiles are finally capturing the imagination of designers But we need to focus on innovation and design development Are you working on any textile revival or special project this year I am gearing up for special celebrations to commemorate 30 years of the Madhu Jain label I am focusing on adding vibrancy to the Ikat textile craft and presenting it in a totally new avatar For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian

pressure of anything deeper — such as a scuba dive (Image Source: AP) Related News Amazon’s top-of-the-line e-reader is now waterproof — an excellent feature for a $250-and-up investment But don’t go scuba diving just yet Your Kindle Oasis might not survive Huh How is that waterproof then And what about the optional cover The new Oasis is designed to survive up to an hour in up to two meters (65 feet) of fresh water not the higher pressure of anything deeper — such as a scuba dive Fresh-water protection is great but you’re more likely to read by a swimming pool or on the beach Amazon says you’ll still get some protection from chlorinated or salty water — just not as much as what’s promised for fresh water Same goes for coffee spills As for that cover the standard version with woven fabric ($45) is “water safe” but not “waterproof” Amazon says that means minor spills but not lengthy submersion To be safe choose a dark color to conceal any stains The pricier leather covers ($60) won’t resist water at all which defeats having a waterproof e-reader in the first place Waterproofing is meant to protect the device from accidental splashes and spills not underwater reading Common with other gadgets the touchscreen gets errant when wet Reading during an ice-cold bath was fine until I submerged the device The font size started changing and all sorts of other settings popped up During a hot shower pages turned on their own While walking in a storm rainwater distorted the text like a magnifying glass and I had to wipe many drops away (In any case I probably should have been paying attention instead to what’s in front of me) Overall the Oasis is a great device for booklovers — though the waterproofing with its limits isn’t enough on its own to justify the premium model You can pair the new Kindle with Bluetooth headsets and enjoy integration with Amazon’s Audible audiobook service You can switch between the text and audio versions of your book without losing your place Unfortunately you have to buy both versions to do this The larger 7-inch screen on the Oasis makes the other devices’ once-adequate 6-inch screens seem too small Amazon says the Oasis fits 30 percent more words The Oasis also has more built-in lights for greater brightness And unlike phones and tablets the e-reader isn’t prone to glare — or to such distractions as Facebook and text notifications Though you can get other Kindles for that — and pay far less For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related News Stay tuned yesterday apply a coat of pinkish
