Dori embroidery is a 3-dimensional embroidery technique originating in India, where threads are laid out in patterns and couched in place. An ancient art that was used for the royal families during the Mughal period, it was a highly sought after craft in the pursuit of garment embellishment. In this collection, we’ve twisted multiple threads together by hand and applied them to our garments for subtle, yet sophisticated raised effect. These intricate, yet delicate floral patterns were inspired by the engravings of the world famous Taj Mahal, and with experienced craftspeople embroidering each garment, it ensures that no two pieces are alike and is kept to the highest standard possible.
Chanderi silk is a lightweight fabric known for its luxurious and soft handfeel. It is produced in its namesake town in the Ashoknagar district of Madhya Pradesh, where centuries-old techniques are used in its weaving processes. Its subtle sheen and transparency have earned its title of “woven air”, a nod to how light it can be. Breathability and a good drape are key aspects of this lustrous fabric and as a cotton and silk blend, this textile has long-lasting durability and strength while retaining the delicate, smooth feel against skin.
