Our trip to India….
25 March 2014
Can’t believe we have been back from fabulous India for nearly three weeks! It is always such an intense experience and coupled with catching a bit of a virus, it has taken us a bit longer to reaclimatise to life back in Sydney! We are though now firing with nearly eight cylinders and back on deck!
It was as usual a fantastic trip and we have some gorgeous pieces on their way as we write. Look forward to vintage Banjara clutches and bags in great new sizes and designs. The finest woollen scarves adorned with sequins and glitter (love a bit of bling). Hand dyed ombre woollen scarves. Hand loomed and embroidered tassel silk/cotton scarves. The scarves come in gorgeous pink, navy, taupe, charcoal and chartreuse. We also have some super soft fine wool ponchos and ombre navy cotton ponchos. We are also madly assembling beads with vintage coins, hands of protection, happiness pendants and tassels. Some very cool Indigo padded jackets, the spotty ones are very funky. And this is just for winter. Team these with our white cotton embroidered shirts and tunics, we will all look the part!
For summer, our blockprinters are madly printing onto fine cotton voile a fantastic palette of grey, navy, pink and aqua. Not only are we doing dresses and tunics this year, but some pants and a few other surprise pieces.
Have to share where we stayed in Delhi. Accommodation in Delhi is always a challenge, but we think we have finally found a place that suits and is a good price. It is located in Hauz Kas, a bit of a travel from central Delhi, but worth it as there are lots of great little places to eat, shop and hang out. The hotel is owned by a Japanese woman and a French man, and the aesthetic really reflects this; it is a simple light filled space with accents of pastel pinks, greens and blues and fantastic artwork. There is a great cafe, art gallery and spa as well. www.therosenewdelhi.com/.
Love Jaipur, how can you not. Discovered a great new bar/restaurant in the grounds of Narain Niwas Palace Hotel called Palladio…super chic. Here are a few pics! You should also check out a new place called Jaipur Modern, very groovy cafe and shop.
