It starts with a thread

Creativity in any form is a treat to both the eyes and the mind. It brings out the artist in one. The gift of the Almighty is reflected in the end result of any work of art. It is something to be nurtured and savoured. Well, there is one such blog that I would like to introduce to you today , a blog simple in design but great in content, a blog that teaches us simple things that we can do on our own, things that bring out the best in us, help us discover our latent talent. It is none other than “TANTU” a blog for the fashion enthusiast.

What is ‘TANTU?’

To quote Sindhu the proud owner of the blog mentioned here “Tantu, which refers to a thread in Sanskrit, is the genome for textiles and fashion designing……… Tantu also refers to continuity. Continuity is the other name of fashion, while trends always change.”

About the blogger

  1. I love the name of the blog. ‘Tantu’ is a very thoughtful one..the national organization for selling Bengali handmade sarees ( Tant Sarees) is named as “Tantusree” tantu = thread and sree= beauty ..


  2. Ok. I am artistically challenged, especially in the needle and thread department. SO I will content myself with gawking with awe at all these fabulous pieces. Looks very interesting, Geeta!


  3. I am overwhelmed with joy reading your post about my blog, Tantu. Accept my humble thanks for the kindest words of yours that make me more responsible and keep me encouraged 🙂 I thank all the awesome commentators too 🙂

    With Love,
    The Arts & Me
