. Inspired by Benares
, the oldest city in the world - the city of the holy river of Ganges, where life and birth come together : the collection celebrates the power of life. It encapsulates the essence of renewal – where we take products long gone from the everyday life of India, and give them exquisite contemporary form for global use.

The skilled hands of India’s craftsmen are seen in many of the pieces. Highlights include: damroo wire furniture - Elements handwoven rugs, ballsy lacquered furniture, urban nostalgia SS tableware.
