    Sea Escape

    The Kalamkari art form can be traced back to ancient times when chitrakattis (travelling groups of singers, musicians and artists) journeyed between villages, entertaining locals with tales of Hindu mythology. The stories were brought to life with impromptu illustrations, created on large bolts of canvas with basic instruments and plant-based dyes. Today Kalamkari work, which translates to pen (kalam) craft (kari), is mostly seen on cotton fabric – as wall art and fashion. The art form continues to thrive in the cultural centres of Sri Kalahasti and Machilipatnam in Andhra Pradesh.

    The Sea Escape collection is a modern take on this art tradition. Watch delicately hand-drawn ocean scenes unfold in mellow hues across three lines: Coral Bay, Ocean Enchanted and Mystic River.

    Coral Bay
    As the name suggests, Coral Bay features finely textured coral motifs that have been hand drawn and filled in with rich hues of red and orange. This is complemented by unusual colour couplings such as red on ultramarine, red on ochre and orange on patina. For those who would prefer a more classic colour scheme, there’s a cream on taupe option. Ideal for just about any space, this line pairs well with modern as well as antique furniture.
