We have always wanted to sport local communities, our social endeavours too always are something we strive to do from a grassroots legal up. So when the idea struck to us to want to do something for the artisans, especially those in Lucknow who have years and years of art they have been practising, we wanted the label to be reflection of that. We have always been in awe of the skill of local artisans, particularly those involved in crafting exquisite intricate work in textiles. In today’s age barring a handful a lot of local art and artisans are vanishing and are struggling to survive with technology and mass produced things taking over. So we wanted to preserve this and help a community to showcase their work, their art, their talent”.
