Weavers refine the beauty of the raw materials with their human touch, and flaws are very much a part of that beauty as they reflect the character and passion of the individual craftsman. Their art has survived generations and it can be said that the weaving ties together people, places and time periods.

Design Practices

Slow Design: Gives this business it’s true human touch. As the pieces are made by hand, there will be variations in the weave & embroideries making it uniquely yours. This will take time to be produced as it will be carried out in small production but it will bring us closer to our roots and culture in this fast-paced World of Fashion.
Perfect for all season and age: To change and break the norms attached with silk-which has made it only a form of seasonal wear and only a particular age segment would buy.
Capsule Wardrobe: It is a concept that contains a collection of a few essential items of clothing that are timeless, all items of clothing in the wardrobe serves a specific purpose & goes well together to achieve a maximum number of different, yet personal style-consistent outfits.

Ground Values

It’s our duty as young, enabled, sustainable & ethical labels to slow down & make our customers develop a certain thought process; to ask what, why, how and where something is made & more importantly whom it is made by?
Each piece should be selected with a purpose in mind & it is time we make our wardrobe a conscious investment. Therefore, it is more sustainable for our people & environment.
