ABOUT SOIL TO STUDIO
Soil to Studio is a Brooklyn based textile design studio founded by Swati Bansal in 2019. Born and raised in Udaipur, India, Swati was exposed to various crafts by her mother and grandmother and spent vacations drawing, painting, and embroidering bedspreads. After a career in banking, she followed her passion and fully dedicated herself to working with the craft communities in India, learning about various weaving and printing techniques and applying those to Soil to Studio creations. The company’s mission is to empower the families behind the craft, preserve local craftsmanship, and continue to create sustainable livelihoods. The artisans set their own wages and Soil to Studio is committed to following fair trade practices in all aspects of the business.
