X marks the spot

Insert here… In an earlier post I mention this black kurta that could probably replace me at events. What probably cannot be stressed enough is just how much this kurta has seen and been through with me. It is almost a metaphor for my life and milestones in a way. For almost all of the […]

Wood & Textile Jewellery on the shop NOW!

They say jewellery can lift a woman’s spirits. I agree. I mentioned in an earlier post that those that know me well, know that I hardly change my jewellery. It’s the same thing that I have on all the time. But sometimes I feel like letting loose the inner bohemian goddess. (Yes, I have one […]

Hung out to dry

This black kurta in so many ways is me. It has been a constant companion over the last five odd years. It has seen much and been through much. In fact a few months ago I was invited to an event and the dress code was black. I joking told my host that I don’t […]

More Jhola Bags – Dec 2016

Your response to the Jhola bags has been so heart warming. To have every piece sold out in a matter of hours or at best a couple of days makes all the hard work I put in so worth while! You can see the styled images for the last two collections here and here. A […]

Hawa Mein Uddhta Jaaye – Dec 2016

I remember a conversation or was it a few lines in a book? A serene idyllic view of a mountain side and a naughty boy pulling at a yellow dupatta.

Everything takes time. There are issues and then more issues to deal with. Life as we know it is a constant tsunami of change. Ideas that came to me a few years ago may only just find fruition. So without skirting any more issues at hand – here are a few of the skirts that […]
