From the Designer’s Pen
Some beginnings result into journeys which elevate and expand life’s experiences- adding more meaning, depth and beauty to them. ‘Shilpmanjari’ has been one such journey for me.‘Shilpmanjari’is so special to me because it is born from a place of love. I was once cleaning my grandmother’s wardrobe (Rajkumari Vimla Devi-the erstwhile Princess of Ayodhya) when I found a beautiful potli ,resplendent shaneel adorned with gold zardozi work ,complete with heavy tassels made up of precious stones . I realized that what I was holding in my hand belonged to my great grandmother ( the erstwhile queen of Ayodhya) and was a very valuable family heirloom. I became fascinated by the craft, the sheer elegance and its opulence.
