    What Makes It Awesome

    Thevasa is all about homecoming. Drawn from the sanskrit worked 'vasa' or home, Thevasa is inspired by India and an exploration of all things Indian, that no matter where we travel and how far and wide you go, we still come back home. Founded in 2019, Thevasa's been working with local artisan communities, so you've got contemporary designs truly blended with our artforms and traditions through a more sustainable and ethical process.

    I browsed their collection and spotted inspirations from around the globe translated through uniquely Indian techniques like hand-block printing and artisan-made ceramics and handcrafted products. While I absolutely adore traditional handicrafts myself, I have always been drawn to a more contemporary aesthetic for my own home. And Thevasa's range of muted pastels, minimal designs and overall chic vibe instantly drew my eye.

    Currently they've got their first collection up and running - Santorini. Inspired by the Greek Isles and their connect with India, this collection is all about those Mediterranean blues and whites that are oh so soothing! Think two-tone blue-and-white stoneware like serving bowls, kullads, dinner plates, tea sets and more. Plus cotton printed cushions with Greek-inspired motifs like Santorini Dome, Aegean hues, seahorses and more that you can toss on your sofa or armchair to add that Med vibe. I have to say, I'm especially excited by their stationery - made from recycled materials, their notebooks feature handcrafted covers in the same beautiful prints. The saree range also features interesting designs that draw from both cultures in fabrics like silk, chanderi, kota doria and cotton - I personally loved the pastel shades and sheer wearability of these designs. 

    Prices range from INR 3,990 to INR 12,990 for sarees, INR 590 to INR 1,290 for furnishings, stoneware from INR 499 to INR 2,290 and stationery from 390 to INR 690, dresses and kurtas from INR 1,990 to INR 4,990.


    What Could Be Better

    Thevasa is all about affordable luxury, while some of their products come within the INR 1,000 mark, largely you can expect to shell out a fair bit more for their sarees, apparel and home linens. 

    Pro-Tip

    We hear they're soon going to be launching their apparel range with kurtas and dresses.
