What Is It?

Who is It For?
Lovers of all things #MakeInIndia and those who proudly say #IWearHandloom. And stationery fiends, this one’s for you too.
Why Should I Go For It?
Resha by textile designer Medhavini is a 2016 Vogue Fashion Fund finalist in the category of sarees. The National Institute Of Design educated designer focuses on the crafts and techniques created in the regions of Kutch and Rajasthan. But of course with a contemporary modern twist. Enter sarees that you can wear from day to night with beautiful prints, interesting dyes and textures. While the techniques and dyes used in the sarees are authentic and traditional, the prints give it a modern update. We are specially loving the clever use of tie and dye techniques and the tassel details that some of the sarees come with.
The exhibition is also worth checking out because everybody loves themselves gorgeous stationery. And Wildchild’s range of fabric sketchbooks with batik covers, and those with art on the cover, plus their selection of leather journals with uncut papers, is sure to get you hooked.
