The Asmaani Collection is inspired by the blue walls of rural architecture in Rajasthan. “Asmaani” means blue sky in Hindi. The collection incorporates block printed and jamdani textiles. The block printed textiles are made in Jaipur in collaboration with craftspeople who specialize in Mughal style block printing. It is a small factory with a very small production capacity. The block designs are selected from their collection of vintage blocks and are similar to the designs used in classic Mughal miniature paintings. Thejamdani textiles are from West Bengal.
