Designed to wear on holiday, even when you’re not!
Verandah was created by Anjali Patel Mehta, a keen traveler, golfer, art, fashion and beach lover and an active mother of two. Having lived between Mumbai and New York the label was born from a need to find boho luxe, chic, fuss-free, travel separates that go easily from day to night, using ultra soft and artisanal fabrics and hand work from India. Body shapes and cultural context play a key role in the label’s design philosophy, where each piece is created with a hint of understated luxury and styles that are inspired to celebrate the bohemian woman.
Verandah’s go to fabrics include luxe silks, cotton and denim. Signature tassels, pleats, delicate hand beading, surface texturing on print motifs and fabric mark each collection. Dresses, kaftans, and easy separates that go from beach to city are staples of each season with a palette that is inspired by art, travel and easy living.
The label makes a conscious effort to support post consumer zero waste, and sustainability. Limited edition pieces in up-cycled denim, ultra soft specially woven fabrics, both artisanal Indian handloom and locally produced are handcrafted into designs. Verandah’s softening and washing processes promote local ‘dhobi’s’ or washer men at the ‘ghats’ who have been part of Mumbai’s heritage. Yarns for accessories are sourced locally, hand dyed and crafted into pieces to enhance the story of each collection. Emerging from India, a country that prides itself in handmade, Verandah adheres to the highest standard of care, quality and fair trade.
From Mumbai to Mykonos, Goa to Ibiza, Verandah packs in effortless boho luxe separates for an eternal holiday.
Verandah x Good Earth
We are delighted to have partnered with Good Earth to launch a special Resort Wear collection marrying both our ideals and aesthetic. Good Earth is India’s favourite luxury brand representing sustainable luxury and have been pioneers in fine artisanal living for over two decades.
Bombay-based label Verandah worked closely with Good Earth to create a capsule resort collection in their super-soft, sustainable fabrics.
This collaboration with Verandah saw designer Anjali Patel Mehta bring her take on resort-wear to the Good Earth universe, highlighting the designs with judicious bead-work and adding playful twists like tassels, fringes, and tie-ups. She also worked with Good Earth prints, reinterpreting them in playful patterns, adding colour, and placing them on Verandah’s signature silhouettes.
Verandah is known for its commitment to zero waste ethical trade practices, and social responsibility. They also work with upcycyled industry sampling waste, specially woven fabrics- using lyocell, tencel, viscose, modal, and cotton blends- as well as artisanal Indian handloom textiles.

Inspired by the safari encampments of the 1920s, preferred by Princes and Grand Seigneurs of the time, each tent is furnished with 19th century ‘Campaign Style’ furniture and has all the comforts you could wish for on safari. Sher Bagh was among India’s first luxury tented camps. It promotes sustainable tourism, is ecologically friendly, provides high levels of service and a faultless Ranthambhore experience.
