She has been awarded the Padma Shri by the Indian government this year and it’s for the first time that an Indian designer has been accorded a Padma award. She has acted like a catalyst in reviving the ancient Indian traditions in textile and art and she gives the entire credit to the weavers and craftsmen who have worked silently and tirelessly to make it possible. She has received a number of other awards which include ‘Indira Gandhi Priyadarshini Award’ and ‘Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres’ or ‘Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters’ by the French government.
