For budding designers looking to get some solid recognition, the industry road is hard and competitive.  That’s why when a design contest comes up that is as meaningful as it is good for a resume, designers pounce. Enter the Indigo handloom contest.

Founder Smita Paul of San Francisco based Indigo Handloom wants you to submit an original design for a hand woven scarf and the winning design will be hand-woven by a one of her master weavers.

While Indigo Handloom offers woven fabrics as well as finished scarves, Smita says focusing on such a quintessential wardrobe staple seemed best for this contest. “I started with scarves because they were the easiest way to experiment with design in the weave. Plus I love scarves. They can transport any outfit,” she says.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
