bungalow


i like it when i see some people whose love for India shows through their work! i instantly fall in love with them. one such company that i chanced upon online a couple of days back is Denmark based Bungalow.


this is what Minna the woman behind the Company has to say about her inspiration and products. "My real passion is the Indian patterns of paisleys, florals, borders and repetition of motifs, and the art of block-printing was a “love at first sight” for me.
Its been a dream to start producing block-printed textiles since the beginning of Bungalow and its therefore a joy to present the latest collection of home textiles. The collection consists of the best quality block-printing available today in India and have been designed and produced in collaboration with the finest craftsmen."
there are some beautiful pictures on her inspiration page that show you a glipse of South India.

an extremely pleasant website...you must take a look! :)

Hi Chandan! yes i love these fabric pieces in the first picture...i have some myself..this technique of all over stitches is called Kantha...mostly from Bengal. Sujanis are more graphic story telling, descriptive quilts from Bihar...and thanks:)
