Growing up on the vibrant soil of India, we’ve seen our naanis, daadis and mothers age with utmost grace. With a hefty bun hanging low on their napes, silky strands brushing their faces, bindis poised with pride on their foreheads and deep kohl rimmed eyes, they have always looked like raanis in their own ways. And, the one classic these regal beauties always swear by is the widely celebrated, ‘Gota Patti’ work. Gota Patti or gota work is a type of Indian embroidery that has its roots in Rajasthan, India. It uses the applique technique wherein tiny pieces of zari ribbon are applied onto the fabric with the edges sewn down to create extravagant patterns. With an old-world charm and understated luxe, this handwork will always be symbolic to us. Here’s an ode to this beautiful kaarigari with fine pieces from Shemohe.
Our ethnic colours have so much to say with very little yet impactful tints. Especially orange, the choicest pick of India for all the pooja, wedding and other festivities. Pay homage to our traditional hues with this orange kurta pant set from Shemohe. Graced with intricate gota and thread work, paired with striped pants for the illusion of length, this set will truly make your granny happy. Also available in sunshine yellow, the traditional regalia is what happiness is made of.
