Opp Sears Towers, Gulbai Tekra, Ahmedabad, July 2015

This collection was a challenge for us to revive the long forgotten art of hand woven engineered textile. Creating a panel size repeat of a large curvilinear design was a monumental task for draughtsmen. Several inventive measures and old craft practices led to the increase in capacity of designs, construction and repeat size. We’ve used traditional design vocabulary harmonizing the prevalent skill set of the weaver in order to understand the numerous future possibilities for this technique and imparting training and enhancing the skill set of the weaver.

Mumbai, July 2014

Shaher is a collective endeavour of Raw Mango by Hema Shroff Patel, who was born in the US but has lived in Mumbai for almost half her life. This collection is a juxtaposition of her vision of exciting, busy, chaotic and overwhelming life of Mumbai and the more pristine, peaceful, and predictable life of Maheshwar, in the heart of Madhya Pradesh. The etched designs on the grey stones of forts, temples and ripples (the Narmada lehar) compelled us to relook at patterns with exaggerated scale, layout and colours, making it distinctively modern and contemporary.
