FICCI FLO’s city chapter in collaboration with artist Smiley Chaudhary, unveiled a mural at the Shri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport (SGRDI) Airport, dedicated to the 75th Independence Day. Made entirely out of the waste from the fashion industry, using waste fabrics, threads and other organic material, this mural has been designed by Smiley Chaudhary and her team, under the aegis of Manjot Dhillon, Chairperson, FLO, Amritsar.

“This quintessential piece of sustainable art boasts India’s rich cultural heritage that works in tandem with the most advanced methods in order to build a nation that takes its glorious past as the stepping stone to a futuristic tomorrow. The waste fabrics and material used from fashion industry is a statement to move towards sustainability in the fashion industry while keeping in mind the post Covid-19 world,” said Smiley. Smiley has created murals from waste material earlier too.

Manjot Dhillon, said, “This mural is dedicated to our country and its empowered women who have not left any arena untouched by their limitless potential. I wholeheartedly thank my team members for their invaluable cooperation and contribution in the making of this piece of art that manifests the eternal beauty of a sustainable world.”

Referring to the elements that this mural exhibits, Smiley said, “From the ‘bindi’ to the ‘Ashok Chakra’, from defence to sports, from our crops to submarines, from our technology to traditional handlooms, we have tried to celebrate India’s unmatched essence that lies at the very heart of its culture and progressive nature. The mural is a collage of many things that India stands for and symbolises.”
