Living world

Consider the flower that comes alive in the sun with all its colour, despite what the news says. Consider the tree that grows its roots through the concrete walls, no matter how hostile the world has been made. Consider the river that flows glistening regardless of what heartless hands have trashed in its waters… Consider them, and their resilient beauty that simply refuses to fade. The hopeful intensity with which nature continues to colour, unfurl and conduct herself is enough to encourage us for tomorrow, even in the bleakest hour.

The promise of hope, the spirited beauty of nature, and its raw impulse to survive against all odds—Anavila’s Dhanak collection says it all.

Linen love

Linen is one of those fabrics that embody the Rithihi view of beauty so perfectly. The beauty of linen is something that runs through and through, going beyond the experience on your skin and eyes, to one that brings a lesson of strength and resilience; of prevailing against adversity, and growing graceful with the stains and scars that life leaves you with. That’s why our love for linen runs deep.

Pure moods

What is pink? a rose is pink
By a fountain’s brink.
What is red? a poppy’s red
In its barley bed.
What is blue? the sky is blue
Where the clouds float thro’.
What is white? a swan is white
Sailing in the light.
What is yellow? pears are yellow,
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is green? the grass is green,
With small flowers between.
What is violet? clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.
What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!

Cottons from Kanchi

The story of Kanchipuram, India’s treasured silk saree town, actually started with cotton. It is thought that weavers first started gravitating towards Kanchipuram because it had many rivers, and was rich in red-black loamy soil; this allowed them to process cotton, dye, and bleach textiles easily. It is also thought that weaving communities thrived in Kanchipuram because the town has hundreds of historic temples, which meant that there was a steady stream of royal commissions coming to Kanchi weavers to create exquisitely crafted cottons to be offered to the gods.
