Indian textiles are amongst the most beautiful and finely crafted in the world. These fabrics and techniques, ranging from the cottons of Bengal, to the cashmere of Kashmir, to the dyes of the South, have been perfected over the course of centuries. However, the impact of COVID has been harsh – and as the country bounces back we want to put the spotlight on our incredible Indian ethnics, by highlighting our favorite contemporary styles made from our traditional techniques!
