'Remembering The Silk Road' is a collection immersed in fantasy: the dreams of crossing many mystical landscapes, the rich nights spent in caravanserais that housed both merchants and pilgrims, and the priceless textiles and jade that passed through the hands of travelers. We re-imagine these scenes in a mood almost half fiction; the possibility of discovering a chatter-filled hamam or bustling street bazaar always plays on the imagination.
Our luxurious garments are a tribute to the culture of nomadship, from the time when the Road thrived, to the tribes in Rajasthan that continue this way of life today. To celebrate nomadship is to celebrate the natural blend of cultures -- the beautiful mixes that we owe to migration, trade, and histories of crisscrossing.
Regal Mughal architecture that came to India via Persia is one of the greatest treasures the Silk Road bestowed upon the sub-continent. In this story, we pay tribute to the timeless marble structures, their pearl-studded interiors, and delicate jaal work that provided a peek in to secret, treasure-filled universes.
