Naushad Mohd Ansari
“I feel very proud of the works I create”
Naushad Mohd Ansari devoted her life to weaving around age 28. She was inspired by nature and her travels to tribal areas across the world. "Little by little, I learned to design and weave a bit," she says. To create, Naushad starts with a design in mind: a basket, handbag, or bin, for example. She then drafts the concept using a pencil, protractor, and ruler to make sure the lines and shapes are exact. "I feel very proud of the works I create," she says, "and I look forward to sharing them with more people around the world."
