Abdula is a Bandhani Artisan from Bhuj. He inherited his intricate craft skills from his grandfather who would craft Pada, a colourful clothing item for the local communities. When they moved to Bhuj, his grandfather had to leave behind the craft and change his livelihood. With a desire to build upon his skills, Abdula pursued a design course in Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya in 2009. There, he not only learnt in depth about the process of dyeing but also participated in many fashion shows thereon. Eventually, in 2012 Abdula pursued his own Bandhani craft business in 2012. He looks forward to presenting his craft to the world.
