My name is Ines Gurovich, I am a student from Argentina pursuing my undergraduate degree at Parsons School of Design, in New York City. I am an Integrated Design major, who focuses on sustainable design within the world of natural resources in textile. With a strong inclination in pursuing studies in gender equality and women’s empowerment in today’s economic status in material culture, I am interested in starting a conversation with whom this topic and my research could be of help for the approach of accomplishment of the ultimate goal – improving the development of the future.
My site research will take place in Summer of 2016, and I will be focusing in the cultures of India (http://www.indiachinainstitute.org) Still figuring out which villages and cities to visit while my stay in India – It would be of great honour and respect to be able to conversate with you if there is interest in my research, and possibly work together in the future.
Hope to hear back from you!

Hi, I’m Kim. I’m a design and Engineer student. I have a project in regards to block printing. I aim to filter out the water that is used to wash the fabric. I am wondering what kind of chemicals there are and if they are harmful. Because after I filter the water, I plan on using it to water the garden of indigo plants.
Kim, you should ask this question in our Facebook group. They are usually very helpful.

“Rooted in Indian history and culture, my work reflects my heritage and origin. As a textile designer, I constantly endeavour to contemporize traditional designs, techniques and processes while still staying true to their essence. Textile techniques and processes become more than a means to an end and guide my aesthetic. Focusing on the importance of the hand, my work is about influencing thought and space whether that is in terms of art or design. Every piece attempts to serve the viewer with a sense of my identity, seeped in history and infused with modern relevance.
I would love to join the Sangam team and contribute to the Industry as an Indivisual !
