Our Runway show this season brings together a special collaboration with Artisan and Master Craftsman Sarfraz Khatri and his studio Pracheen, a member of the Paramparik Karigar Association bringing to market and reviving centuries old craft techniques across the country. Sarfrazbhai comes from a family of traditional dyers and printers from the district of Kutch from the State of Gujarat in India. The family has developed the technique of producing and using natural dyes to hand block print on delicate fabrics like silk, wool and fine organic cottons through a long and laborious process.

The studio is based in the heart of South Mumbai's busiest underbelly in Masjid Bunder and Pracheen's team of 'Karigars' go about their rhythmic stamping and dying in the most Zen manner on the upper levels of a four floor walk up blissfully ignorant to the chaos in the streets below. The luxe fabrics used in our collection comprise of Handloom Dupion silk, Crepe Tussar, Mulberry silk, Moonga silk and Organic cotton which have been artfully printed (six meters taking two produce); to repurpose them, using every inch of fabric, to design the garment, trims and shoes.

The natural and environmentally friendly dyes used in The Boheme Zen by Verandah are derived from Natural indigo cake for blue, Madder Root ('Mangistha') for red, Mehendi ('Henna') for green, Katha ('Catchu') for Brown, Lime Resist ('Chuna') for grey and fermented water of rusted iron ('Kasmi') for Black. The silhouettes are contemporary, inspired by vintage kimono design. Drawing inspiration from the costumes of the Han dynasty in China, the Edo period in Japan and vintage Boro kimonos, the modern day kimono and the signature ultra soft ready to wear separates in our collection draws a parallel to pieces from the fashion revolution in the 1960's to bring out the Boheme in Zen highlighting the beauty of craft
