IMAGE: The collection has been inspired by a 17th century book called Hortus Malabaricus by Hendrik van Reede. It is the first botanical record written about the flora of the Malabar Coast.


IMAGE: Hortus Malabaricus literally means 'Garden of Malabar'. And this collection captures the best local flora there.


IMAGE: Sustainable. Eco-friendly. Natural. These designs are apt for 2020.
