Treat your self to the most luxurious shawl in the world! For centuries, ladies have treasured the beautiful hand-embroidered shawls from the idyllic Himalayan valley of Kashmir. The techniques have been passed down through the generations and now you can comfort yourself in the soft luxury and exquisite needlework of our pashmina shawls and stoles.
The elegant hand-embroidered pashmina shawl is a masterpiece of Kashmiri artistry! Nestled in the foothills of the Indian Himalaya, Kashmir is the original source for cashmere, hence the name, that was then exported to colonial Britain. Kashmir became famous for its soft materials as well as its rich designs and patterns.
This scarf is made from the soft hair of high altitude Changthangi goats from the Ladakh region. Skilled Kashmiri artisans then sew silk thread into intricate designs onto the pashmina, taking months and years depending on the design. Lastly, it is signed by the artisan in silk thread as a seal of authenticity.

This outstanding coat is handmade using soft Himalayan wool in vibrant colors and stunning designs. The bright colors and exuberant patterns will bring a smile to your face whether you wear this out with friends or while enjoying some fresh air out on the town.
After discovering the fabric on one of our journeys to Kashmir, we designed and stitched each one-of-a-kind piece together by hand at our studio.
These amazing Natural Pashmina shawls are handmade from the finest quality cashmere in the world. The famed Pashmina, or Changthangi, goat was at the heart of the cashmere trade that started centuries ago in Kashmir where 'pashmina' literally translates to 'soft gold." Cashmere is made in many places around the world. The secret to pashmina is that it only comes from this special goat that lives high in the Ladakhi Himalaya.
Today, these light brown and cream goats wander the high elevations of the Indian Himalaya with their 'Changpa' herders. After spending the winter above 13,500 feet, they bring their goats down to the valleys in the summer and comb out the under fleece from their herds. The herders sell the raw pashmina to specialized craftsmen who comb, spin and weave the fibre by hand using traditional methods.
Our natural pashmina shawls are 100% pashmina and the color is all natural. These authentic pashmina shawls will add a touch of luxury to your wardrobe!

This charming dress is handmade by artisans at our studio in Rajasthan with 100% organic cotton and natural indigo dye. The soft natural fabric breathes, making them ideal for warm weather and relaxed days. This lovely dress is highlighted by sleeping lotus flowers, ready to burst in the morning sun.
The magic of this dress lies in the handmade dabu printing. Dabu is an age-old process that has been perfected over generations in India. A local mud mixture is hand printed on natural cotton cloth using hand-cut wood block prints and left to dry. The cloth is then dipped into the natural indigo vat, where the area with the mud resists the dye, and the rest is colored a beautiful blue. After washing, the secret is revealed. Part of the beauty of dabu fabric lies in fact that each block is placed by the artisan’s hand - what is left behind is an imprint of the personality and character of the blockprinter. Slight variations are to be celebrated.
Fabric: 100% Organic Cotton
Size: This dress is relaxed with plenty of room to breathe.
Care: Fabrics with indigo tend to transfer color. We recommend washing before first usage to remove any surface dyes. Wash separately or with darker colors. Gentle machine wash recommended. Do not dry in the sun to avoid bleaching.
The bright colors and exuberant patterns of our Kantha Jacket will bring a smile to your face. Each piece is unique and crafted by hand from recycled saree fabric. Stitched together, the fabric is quilted for a relaxed fit and feel.
The jacket is made by hand using a technique called 'kantha.' Kantha takes recycled saris, still worn by the majority of ladies in India, and cuts the fabric into small pieces. These pieces are then sewn together at the edges and joined using a running stitch. Kantha is four layers thick, and this whole process creates a soft quilted fabric. The jacket comes together at our studio with a matching belt and two pockets.
