Tulā तुला

Cotton patchwork and woven checks
Spoken for

Home is where the heart is
And good tree bears good fruits
And there is nothing like a naga woman’s laughter
And life continues to surprise me
The world is changing very fast
And I am finally beginning to slow down

Here's to building from what is precious in our growth, and eliminating that what is a clutter.

"Let them be" who we hold close!

"Let them go" who never could come close!

Between a balance of choice and circumstances, let the "be" be and let the "going" go!

I find myself as Tulā.




I have brought intentional balance of bold usage of colours in the boxed-quilt pattern patchwork set in harmony with subtle hand woven check patterns on the other side of this double sided stole. Fire & Ice, hot & cold, bright & mellow- the balance of duality brought through replicating the squares in diverse forms.

Buyer Empowerments
