Creative Process

village in rural india

One of the villages where we source embroideries and leather work

 

Occasionally, we visit rural villages or places in India which are famous for specific types of crafts and artisans, searching for new pieces, talents, hidden gems. Each piece is born of the inspiration of the craftsmen themselves. They create from secular skills and techniques and practice, enhanced day after day, in many years of experience working with colors, embroidery, materials and designs specific to their regions.

 

"I, with my design knowledge, will never make it as beautiful as they do, without ever having taken a design class," Leticia points out.

 

Then, with the follow-up of the entrepreneurs, the pieces are adapted to the market, considering formats, colors, sizes and combinations with new materials (for example, embroidery integrated with leather bags).

In addition to the follow-up, Leticia and Peeyush have partnered with a cooperative in North India, which supports small artisans and invests in training, professionalization, training of new skills and supports them to reach new markets.

 

Production techniques

 

Embroidery

Tie Dye

As old as history itself, tie dye is an art where parts of fabric are tied or covered (so as to protect them from pigments) and then dyed, creating beautiful prints. Specific clans in India have perfected this technique for millennia.

Block Print

One of the most beautiful forms of usable art made in India, the stamping with blocks first requires that a craftsman carve prints in blocks of wood. Then a master in block printing uses the blocks to create beautiful and detailed prints in the most diverse fabrics and colors.

*This chart may vary a little from other charts, as there is no international standard for shoe sizes.
