Born in one of the oldest textile printing families of Benaras, Chhaya has always been fascinated with fabrics and color. Her desire to pursue design as a career earned her a degree in Textile Design from NIFT in 2003. The family business, passed down through generations, hasn’t drifted from its ethos of clear-cut uncompromised luxury. Lady Luck ensured her husband was into the textile business too and Chhaya continued to take forward the design aesthetics of her family business. A desire to work with diverse surface techniques, love for a wide spectrum of colors in addition to a yen for finesse in all her creations injected new energy into classic weaves and won her patrons nationwide.
