This collection was inspired by our love for Muslin & Jamdani, the timeless fabrics of Bengal. After much searching, we found two clusters in West Bengal, with about 500 weavers, that were producing the finest 200 count Muslin, Jamdani and Khadi we have come across. It took us many iterations to learn how to shape and stitch such fine muslin!
The silhouettes are an homage to the timeless women of Rabindranath Tagore, Bengal’s poet laureate and India’s first Nobel Prize winner. The women that Tagore created in his stories are complex, intricate and layered and yet, their emotions and motivations are exquisitely resonant to every woman, every day, even today.
