Hung out to dry

This black kurta in so many ways is me. It has been a constant companion over the last five odd years. It has seen much and been through much. In fact a few months ago I was invited to an event and the dress code was black. I joking told my host that I don’t […]

What it means to be an artist – On AudioGyan

I got an email the other day from Kedar Nimkar asking to speak to me. He wanted to do a podcast related to my work. I said sure and then googled the site Audiogyan. And truth be told I got lost in listening to a few podcasts immediately.  There is a rich tapestry of podcasts […]

A hundred little stitches

Sashiko (刺し子, literally “little stabs”) is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching (or functional embroidery) from Japan. … The white cotton thread on the traditional indigo blue cloth gives sashiko its distinctive appearance, though decorative items sometimes use red thread. #sashiko – I finally started work on something that has been on my mind for […]

The Economic Times – March 2017

Sustainability is the buzz word for everyone today and so it should be. We are consuming our planet at a frightfully stupendous pace! To be asked to give a sound bit on the subject was a no-brainer. I try and re-cycle, re-use where ever I can. If I can value add or up-cycle then I […]

A young woman shyly  admonishing him as she watched it float away.. The dupatta/stole/scarf… preserves modesty for some and adds colour for others. It can […]

7 skirts for 7 sisters – Nov 2016

Everything takes time. There are issues and then more issues to deal with. Life as we know it is a constant tsunami of change. Ideas that came to me a few years ago may only just find fruition. So without skirting any more issues at hand – here are a few of the skirts that […]

The Fusion Projects – With Glasshopper

The first in the series of The Fusion Projects is with stained glass studio – Glasshopper. It’s been 6+ months in the making but the thought actually has been brewing in my mind for almost four years. Jewellery. I have always wanted to see my work in the many possible ways it can be used […]

The Denim re-done Collection July 2016

The first edition of the Denim collection was a sell out.  If I remember correctly there were about 14 bags at that time. Actually sell out is not technically true – one was left at the end. These too sold out in about 12 hours from the time they went live on the store much […]
