Words from the Founders


“Taking inspiration from diverse cultures and geographies, our team of artisans reimagine fashion onto flowy silhouettes- dresses, kaftans, kaftan shirts, tops and pants. We cultivate traditional styles keeping victorian aesthetics in mind, which is why we stick to using premium fabrics like chanderi, linen and silk in our statement pieces. Being completely stylish and comfortable, each clothing item from our collections stands to be the right choice for weddings and festivities. Thanks to our psychology of combining modern colour palettes with wonderful traditional prints and handwork.” explains co-owner Shikha.
