Midnight Black & Red

Human Story -

Tucked away in a quaint old bylane of a sleepy village, the artisan's workshop is a treasure trove of finely crafted pieces of art. Vats of natural dyes in hues of red and mustard lend the space a rich warmth. Based on iconography and mythologies, hand-painted kalamkari is a rare art of storytelling on fabric.

In the western state of Gujarat and Rajasthan, Bandhani has been a way of life since centuries. This wool-silk stole is a delightful fusion of Bandhani and kalamkari art. It took more than two months to create the piece. Conjures up images of brightly hued odhnis fluttering against the sandy terrain, peacocks, open skies, and the sweet sounds of the ektara - a stringed instrument used by the wandering bards and minstrels of India. Adorn this stole for a soulful experience.
