Khamir Campus

Khamir operates out of a unique campus in Kukma, Kachchh. Located 15 kilometres from Bhuj, the campus is a space for artisans, resource groups and institutions, buyers, suppliers and craft lovers from around the world to gather under one roof to exchange ideas, collaborate and learn. The space is always alive with potters creating clay masterpieces or imaginative textiles being woven by resident weavers.

The Campus was established in 2007 with the support of the Government of Gujarat and the Confederation of Indian Indutries. It was designed by Professor Neelkanth Chhaya of CEPT University, Ahmedabad. The campus was constructed using sustainable, earth based construction technologies such as wattle and daub, rammed earth, and stabilized earth blocks. Construction was overseen by Hunnarshala, a Bhuj-based organisation that develops building technologies to construct disaster-safe, ecologically friendly and sustainable buildings.
