A convergence of two of the most diverse and widely celebrated and recognised art forms will be showcased in the coming week at the Mumbai-based designer boutique � Vaya.

Contemporary arts including Ikat from Andhra Pradesh will be housed under the same roof as heritage arts of Pashmina and Kani from Kashmir.
