Meet the Artist
“I’m currently helping the families of the artisans who work with me by employing them, but would like to create jobs for women and people with disabilities.”
“Hi, I am Amit Moza. I was born in Srinagar. I graduated in fashion design from YMCA, New Delhi.
“Kashmir is famous for beautiful and creative works of art. I want to spread Kashmir’s art and craft, which has been dwindling due to political unrest. My dream is to open my own showroom to display my crafts.
“As a child, I became fascinated with the embroidery work of Kashmir, since I was always surrounded by different arts and crafts of Kashmir. My father is my inspiration. He’s worked in this for 23 years. While growing up, I wanted to get into this craft and decided to learn fashion design.
“I moved to New Delhi from Srinagar with my family and we had to leave our family business behind. It was a very difficult time, but with hard work and dedication, we managed to overcome it. We created a place for ourselves in this beautiful world of arts and crafts.
“Initially, it was very difficult and challenging to learn the craft but with my father’s guidance, I managed to overcome these hurdles. Now I work with my father, who runs the workshop while I design.
“I usually work with cotton fabric, although it sometimes depends what my customers want. The embroidery is done with wool or silk threads. The colors we use to dye the yarn or fabric are AZO-free, which are bio-degradable.
