Abha Dalmia has been associated with the textile industry for the past 40 years. She took it upon herself to give life to the dying art of Benarsi weaves by meticulously creating interest and reviving antique designs in a modern ethos. She works closely with the weavers of Benares through her company LIFE and helps to rehabilitate them through her work. Her products are available only in select exhibitions and not marketed commercially.
She is also a prominent figure in the cultural scene of Delhi, and is the Chairperson of the programme committee of "Samagam", a cultural society conceptualised and formed by a body of eminent industrialists and philanthropists to preserve our heritage through meaningful cultural programmes by both veteran artistes and new talent.
