The Sari is one of the most versatile, unique and sustainable garments in the world. One can drape the Sari as a gown, a dress and even a pair of pants using just knots and pleats. There is a Sari drape for every person as well as occasion. The Indian Draping Co.  researches the wisdom of the past through the lens of gender, politics, and sustainability. We share this knowledge through art, public talks, and collaborations. We partner on projects that advance inclusion, gender-equity, and sustainable textiles.

The Indian Draping Co. was founded in 2017 by acclaimed Sari researcher and artist Nikaytaa. When not fantasising about the infinite possibilities of the Sari, Nikaytaa loves to hang out at home with a steaming cup of tea and her favourite feminist literature.
