Aneeth creates clothing inspired by the local dressing styles from the remotest areas, utilizing indigenous knowledge of ancient textile and clothing traditions of India.
Péro recreates and adapts local styles for the modern consumer who loves the aesthetic, but also the ease, comfort and pleasure, provided by the simple shapes. The textiles are handmade in various parts of india, and each collection incorporates at least five traditional techniques from the country, for example- block prints from Rajasthan; Jamdani from West Bengal; woven textiles from Maheshwar; Khadi from Calcutta. Each piece is hand crafted and passed through the hands of atleast 5 to 12 crafts people. The result is a collection of amazing pieces with incredible hand feel & stunning details.
