My process is closely followed on my Instagram, where I've acknowledged why I've chosen to use certain techniques and how they have been achieved.
The process from buying the hand-woven fabrics from global makers, to the final touches of the hand stitched edges is all part of the delicate touch to making a collection which celebrates the process, and technical value. Craftsmanship has been a central focus, and importantly learning handicrafts in India such as block printing, and natural dyeing. These techniques have been brought back into the studio and learnt from others to create a contemporary collection, with tradtional values.
