Wondrous classical India and British Colonial heritage meet and are transformed into contemporary textiles. The glorious and exquisite architectures of Lutyens – Awe inspiring Connaught Place in Delhi - elegant Palanquins that transported the grand maharajahs and the Majestic Durbar Hall where they held court – colonial expeditions to discover and collect rare and exotic plants & flowers, all created a uniquely decorative, sumptuous & luxurious style. • Amaranth Printed fabrics – 8 designs in 30 colourways Amaranth- A fantastic painterly flowered design inspired by the Raj’s beautiful impressive gardens printed on pure, smooth cotton. Mandalay – A lavish and grand scale design of fabulous, blooming tulips on linen union. Samode Flower – An intricately detailed floral on smooth cotton. Cochin Spice – A classical block printed design of auriculas on a natural linen union. Banyan Tree – A trailing foliage design on linen union. Connaught Place – An exquisite design inspired by the grandeur of Lutyens’ architecture printed on a soft, subtle stripe. Rajasthani Stripe – A richly decorative stripe redolent of opulent traditional colours and patterns of Rajasthan. Palanquin Stripe – A dramatic stripe of saturated colours on soft peachskin duck. • Coromandel Silks – 5 designs in 23 colourways A truly breath taking and sumptuous collection of lavish silks from the lustrous Coromandel, an expansive glittering jewel-like design on lustrous silk, Tarbana an ottoman weave with rich colours with an ombre warp fading in and out across the width.

Olona the background of Trasimeno and Ombrione, hardwearing and yet beautiful. • Breganze Vinyl Wall coverings – 5 designs total of 40 colourways A completely new direction of sophisticated, contemporary vinyl wallcoverings with a unique texture, inspired by classical grasscloths and raw silks.
