As the winter gets into action, we’re sure that every single one of you must be dressed in the season’s exuberant prints and shapes in the sweetest and most muted hues. However, there is one accessory that is of paramount importance: the winter scarf. And while its purpose is practical, that doesn’t mean that it needs to compromise the rest of your outfit.
The motifs, floral and abstract prints and embroidery work in our scarves celebrate a deep and abiding love for nature, and draw from the rich heritage of India. In them you can find fragments of a true confluence of cultures, a point where our products transcend one region, one time and one language.
The Bengali, Gujarati, Rajasthani and Benarasi influences in our scarves are a truly syncretic culture in a multi-ethnic society of diverse symbolism - a pure amalgamation of opposing ideas and beliefs. Layered and playing with textures and surface techniques influenced by these cultural melting pots, the gleam and warmth imbibed in our scarves are used to tell stories of heritage that may have been forgotten by many. With practical and functional shapes to assist every day use, our scarves are a celebration of distinctive curves, balance and subtle refinement.
