In the autumn of 2012, a major exhibition of Banjara embroidery was organized by the Maiwa Foundation in Vancouver, Canada. Laxmi Naik, founder and President of the embroidery workshop as also the Charitable Trust , was invited to conduct some Banjara embroidery sessions and to inaugurate the exhibition. Since this successful show, orders are pouring from Canada and they assure the survival of the embroidery workshop, under the label “Surya’s Garden”.
