Strips of cotton into linear patchwork with temple border and striped woven motifs
Spoken for
“Is not this a true autumn day?

Just the still melancholy that I love - that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit.

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

The dupatta has two vivid sides, so vivid you would need to make up your mind to choose which one will you call the back and which one is your front side. And on what kind of day, they will interchange their roles? What kind of mood will stir the shift?

One side of the dupatta has many strips of cotton one after another singing songs of the autumn.

Other side is the romance of geometry gently placed within weaves of cotton. Stripes and triangles appear as borders and pillars of some temple visit from the childhood.

Autumn-y nostalgia!
Nostalgic Autumn!

Buyer Empowerments

Cotton fabric shreds bound together into patchwork. Fabric shred up-cycling and re-purposing.
One of a kind wearable textile that celebrates the integral fire. The repetition of different shades of yellow, mustard and and hints of green through patterns created by prints and textures bring forth nostalgia of autumn! By contrasting it with stark deep black, the autumn colours reveal themselves vividly! I also enjoyed giving this side subtle touch of colour through woven motifs into cotton.
