“Where winters are mild,
Dianthus can be grown as a winter annual.”
Honouring every sense of frost in the
echoes of full blooms of youth, beauty
and pleasure swaying in the winter
winds. The magical, sweet smelling
flowers, so violet with their innocence
walking us through cultures and ancient
Greek myths of gods and goddesses
symbolising the virtues of humility.
Our handwoven fabrics illustrate
the delicacy and luxurious elegance
through their textures and shades.
RABARI, the inspiration drawn from the transitional Gujarati embroideries specialised within the Mochi community of Kutch. The craft of Rabari embroidery is stitched with fine silk satin threads using the fine aari needle. The aari is an adaptation of the cobbler’s awl. The motifs usually embroidered are buttis (flowers) derived from Persian or Mughal sources.
A nostalgic glimpse into a time when every stitch holds and represents a story, a dream, or a prayer. This embroidery offers more than just a visual treat; it's a journey into the soul of a vibrant, resilient, and deeply cultural nomadic community.
As we engage with these textiles, we are connecting with centuries of history, heritage, and human spirit.
You are a part of me now
You touched me.
With your kindness and love, so
Your soft lips are kind
Your eyes glow with life.
I’m glad you touched me
You are a part pf me now.
You are The Blue Clan.
