Paint splattered!!

That black kurta speaks of the pain I endured. This next one I hope to be of healing. This olive green kurta is also about five years old now. It has seen me through many days and nights of painting. Every splatter is a subconscious mark or gesture of joy or frustration. There are deliberate […]

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. A young woman shyly  admonishing him as she watched it float away.. The dupatta/stole/scarf… preserves modesty for some and adds colour for others. It can […]
