        • DASARA : THE ROYAL LEGACY
          The Indo-Saracenic architecture of Mysore Palace is the inspiration for our Dasara Collection. Discover the palace, impressively painted in turquoise blue and decorated with intricate flower motifs & gold details. Enjoy the royalty of Mysore on your table with this series which is a mirror reflection of the Mysore palace, a depiction of Royal India.
        • PICHWAI : ETERNAL KRISHNA BHAKTI
          Pichwai paintings are a traditional form of art done on cloth using elements like trees, birds, lotuses and cows, which narrate the tale of Lord Krishna and are used as a backdrop while worshipping Srinathji, his incarnation. This series is crafted using the contemporary form of this art and refers to the timeless paintings of Nathdwara and further beautified with 24k gold.
        • JYAMITI : PERFECTION IS IN THE EYES
          Jyamiti, the Hindi name for geometry, is very well presented in the perfection of Indian monuments. The carving of huge domes, inlay on the walls and the architectural structure of the monuments all assert that perfection was in the eye of ancient India. Through this series, we convey our love & respect for this very artistic notion of the ancient Indians.
        • BYAH : A BOND OF SEVEN SERIES
          Phad painting art is a 700-year-old legacy of Rajasthan passed down over generations within a single-family. Here in the Byah series, we have used Phad to show the extensive rituals of Indian weddings. Although to narrate this anecdote, we have carefully selected the colours black, which signifies mystery and gold, which signifies wisdom, to highlight the journey of marriage.
