A passage to India

April is turning out to be yet another busy month at Anusha. After a record-breaking March (the response to the new collection has been truly phenomenal - I'm so glad you like it!), we've decided to add some new goodies to our summer collection.

I'm pleased to be stocking pieces by a lovely designer who we worked with a few years ago. Her latest collection includes stunning shift dresses and scarves made from silk using traditional bandhani techniques. Bandhani originates from Rajasthan and Gujurat in India, and the technique involves hand-knotting the silk with thread and then dying it to create the most beautiful prints (a bit like tie-dying, but much more intricately done).

Having visited both Rajasthan and Gujurat in 1998, seeing these silks has made me rather nostalgic for India (and more determined than ever to take Mr Anusha to that amazing country one day!).

The new pieces will be available online in a couple of weeks.
