Ten Second Takeaway

Working with natural dyes and woven handloom textiles, Mura Collective experiments with Shibori techniques in indigo. You’ll find exquisite saris, kurtas, tunics and palazzos at mid-level pricing.

A collective effort

Started in 1998 by Kusum G. Tiwari and Prabha Gahtori, Mura Collective is a label that experiments with natural and safe chemical dyes on woven handloom textiles. But what Mura is really known for is their Shibori innovations in indigo. Over the last seven years, Mura has established itself as a signature Shibori specialist with a core dream-team of weavers, dyers and helpers.


Colour me indigo

Having cultivated a signature style of Shibori designs and language, Mura Collective uses these patterns on tassar and matka. We particularly recommend Mura for their uniquely identifiable geometric designs {lots of inspiration from nature too}. Indigo and other complementary colours run through their line. Here’s the cherry on top of the cake though: Mura Collective offers tempting, mid-level pricing. It’s perfect for gifting without breaking the bank.

Drape on some colour

We are practically drooling looking at the price tags of the Mura Saris. Be it in tassar, matka silk, maheshwari, silk kota or cotton, the contemporary designs make it the go-to option for young sari-wearers. They also keep an expansive variety of long and mid-length kurtas, tunics, palazzos, dupattas and stoles. If you’re looking for winter-wear, then Mura does some fine wool shawls and quilted cotton jackets. They deliver globally, so yay!.
