I have been an huge fan of Indelust.com, an e-commerce site which curates ethically sourced fashion, art and home decor by emerging designers and artisans from the Indian sub-continent. Not only are the products beautifully made but each piece is a reflection of the ethos of the company – sustainable luxury that has a positive social impact and supports the work of artisan communities in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal. I love Indelust’s eclectic yet chic aesthetic and reached out to the site’s Founder and Creative Director, Sana Rezwan Sait, to curate her top picks for this holiday season. Take a look!
Tree Print Sari by Payal Singhal – This tree print sari is one of my favorites by Payal Singhal. With its handmade qualities and graphic print, it is the perfect balance of traditional and modern for the holidays.
Grey Panel Kurta by Yashvardhan Patni – For a less traditional look this holiday season, this tailored kurta by Yashvardhan Patni offers a slimmer fit and pleated panels for the modern man.
