What we’re smitten by, square tiles (like the blue Byzantine mosaics), while others draw inspiration from the indigo plant itself. What we’re smitten by, however, the is Panchatantra series. Especially the sari which has the cutest print of a crocodile, resting on a rock, in indigo on white. Or the peacocks and flowers which are quintessential Rajasthan, but perfect for a modern day brunch. If you like a bit of drama on your outfit, they have also revived the art of danka too, native to Rajasthan.

Men, they stock shirts and kurtas for you. Kids can be decked out in their dresses, tunics and kurtas too.
