Prabhawati and Shushmita, the mother-daughter duo behind Gulnari, our newest collection of indi dress, playsuit and shirt
At Kaasiḏa, we are proud to work with skilled and wonderful female artisans of India who create our beautiful embroidered dresses and tops. One such duo is Prabhavati and Sushmita, the mother-daughter team behind our latest collection, Gulnari. We met them during a recent visit, and we were amazed to see their passion for their craft and the attention to detail they put into each piece.
The two filled the room with laughter as they poured their hearts into creating our beautiful embroidered clothing. It was evident that their craft brought them joy! Seeing two generations work together to create our stunning pieces was truly heartwarming for all our team members present in the room with them.
Chikankari, a traditional embroidery style that originated in Lucknow over two hundred years ago, is a craft passed down from one generation of artisans to another in the North Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Prabhawati learned the art from her ancestors and is now passing it on to her daughter, Shushmita. The beauty about it is that every artisan the craft is passed down to, adds their unique touch to it.
We are thrilled to collaborate with these talented artisans to create a range of unique embroidered dresses and tops. Our pieces are designed to be timeless and versatile, perfect for wearing through different phases of life. Our beautiful indi dresses and tops can be easily transitioned into maternity wear and breastfeeding friendly dresses - reflecting our commitment towards sustainability and waste reduction.
As a small business, we are committed to supporting skilled female artisans like Prabhawati and Shushmita, who pour their hearts and souls into creating our embroidered clothing. By sharing their stories and showcasing their craftsmanship, we hope to celebrate the love and care that goes into each piece and highlight the importance of supporting local, sustainable businesses.
When you shop Kaasiḏa, you are not only supporting a small business but also a community of talented female artisans who are keeping a traditional craft alive through beautiful, unique pieces for you to cherish. We hope that you will join us in celebrating the artistry of artisans like Prabhawati and Shushmita who make our clothing truly special.
