The dreamers behind Khinkhwab:
Khinkhwab is a long cherished dream of ‘mother-daughter’ duo from Varanasi, Ruchi Agarwal and Geeta Agarwal who always treasured their Banarasi silk heirlooms from their previous generations. The craftsmanship of Banarasi weavers, the ancient art of weaving, and the colorful and exclusive designs of Banarasi silk sarees won their hearts. That set off a dream together to form “Khinkhwab”. Their passion and admiration for the handloom work of Banarasi silk encouraged them to bring Banarasi silk weavers and their masterpieces together to create this wonderful platform for Banarasi silk lovers, as much as they are.
Furthermore, Ruchi’s father Ashok Agarwal and brother Amit Agarwal are very supportive and instrumental in giving shape to its supply chain and setting up this online platform for Khinkhwab.
The Golden Dream: Khinkhwab
‘KinKhab’ or Kimkhab the golden dream! Banaras brocade is also known as ‘kinkhab,’ or ‘kamkhwab’ means kin (golden), and khab (dream). Woven in golden threads, Kinkhab is a golden dream. The meaning behind the name itself perfectly describes the values of ‘Khinkhwab,’ which is to showcase the golden dreams woven in golden threads by the proficient and brilliant weavers of Varanasi.
Ruchi Agarwal, the co-founder of this exciting brand is clear about the vision for Khinkhwab and this is what she says,
"My dream is that every Indian woman owns the Khinkhwab Banarasi saree. I want to see every woman enjoying the pleasure of wearing a pure silk fabric. I wish to promote Banarasi sarees all over the world."
