New Arrivals: Handblock Printed Soft Cotton Fabrics For Dresses Curtains and Baby Nursery

We have spotted this particular floral pattern in the hindi movie Hindi Medium in which the actress Saba Quareem wears big bold pattern with ease. Sab has worn many such big patterns through out the movie but the most striking among all was the floral pattern in Red and Green over White background.

A Bohemian Approach - Kashmir Embroidery Motifs

I remember this fabric from this post on Tumblr from 2013, which I reblogged on our Tumblr. In the post I mentioned that I found something similar in the market and that I will post the pictures once I make something interesting using that fabric. Here is the fabric that I found on Tumblr and started searching for the original source for this picture. I couldn't find a source page for this picture and at this point I am sure that it is a vintage piece. Since I am not sure about the origin, based on the pattern, I can guess it was made in Kashmir.

New Arrivals Silk Pouches

For last couple of days, we've been working on these beautiful raw silk pouches. The process started with sourcing some stunning zip pullers. To give these pouches an Indian touch, we walked on the streets of very busy 'Chandani Chowk' in New Delhi - the capital of India. We found some very lovely handmade zip pullers, made by artisans of Rajasthan.

New Arrivals: Aztec Ribbons and Laces

What comes to your mind when somebody talks about Aztec? To me, Aztec is a world full of colors and beautiful patterns. But in reality, it is more than just colors and patterns. According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, "Aztec, Nahuatl-speaking people who in the 15th and early 16th centuries ruled a large empire in what is now central and southern Mexico. The Aztec are so called from Aztlán (“White Land”), an allusion to their origins, probably in northern Mexico."
