Dhaka – Ayusha Dallakoti

Social Impact: Gender Equality and Poverty Alleviation in Nepal.

Studio: Textile & Object Design.

Ayusha Dallakoti, a COFA student graduating in Textiles designed a range of homeware intended to be produced ethically in Nepal in an effort to alleviate poverty for marginalised communities.

With the support of mentor and ceramic artist Katherine Mahoney, Ayusha was able to extend her skills from textiles to ceramics and develop a range of objects which elegantly combine traditional Nepalese patterns with a contemporary design aesthetic.
