India is a country of versatility, a place of different languages, religions, cultures and art. Being a textile designer I have always been fascinated by the glorious and rich textile history in this country. There is just so much to know, so much to learn! All I hope sometimes is that, in the ever-evolving world we don’t forget our roots and the brilliant art that exists does not become a thing from the past. The beauty of hand painting is getting lost in the world of digital printing and power looms.
I really respect those entrepreneurs who work not only for their passion and love they have towards something, but for craftsmen who need the support.
I came across this beautiful brand; TUNI Interiors which has such a brilliant work culture that I had to write about it!
TUNi Interiors, yoU aNd I, is a brand aiming to design soft furnishings customized for your space. Founded by Mrinmayee Dhobale, alumnus of NIFT and London College of Fashion, TUNI has a well-networked team of highly skilled craftsmen from Kolkata, Bihar, Orissa and Hyderabad. The designer plans to work with artists around the nation.
The company successfully started with an exhibition in March 2014, and has been growing ever since. The concept of customized designs paired with the hand painted art by the skilled artists makes it even more valuable. The design exclusivity lies in the making of the product itself. The upcoming collection focuses on Patachitra, Madhubani and the Tribal art from East India. Stay tuned!
Hats off to a concept like this! Wishing all the luck to TUNi Interiors and of course the beautiful mind behind it, Mrinmayee Dhobale.
