Surabhi is a designer and an entrepreneur that strongly believes in making positive social change. Driven by the innovation process, as it relates to the development of strategic interventions, products and design systems all focused on transforming people's lives, she founded 'Revived By Surabhi'. A studio that incorporates design thinking strategy to create social-economic opportunities for a distressed artisan community in Kashmir, India.
An alumnus of Maharani Gayatri Devi Girlschool, an Arts graduate in Product Design from Central Saint Martins, London, and a Master in Science graduate in Strategic Design and Management from Parsons School of Design, New York.
Her urge to constantly experiment with new ways to express ideas through designs sparked her interest in crafts. Hence, she became focused on turning and promoting low-cost materials into high-value outcomes.
This led to the birth of Revived by Surabhi, that takes its inspiration from the local skills and traditions of #Kashmir in the process of Paper Machè.
She wants to encourage indigenous artisans from Kashmir by bringing their artefacts in the mainstream. She is an aspiring educator and has a huge penchant of answering & asking her favourite question of “why you pick what you pick” to everyone she meets.
