Here at Upasana, we let our fabric do the talking for us and this collection was no different. We had our fun playing with the different drapes and falls of pure indigo khadi while keeping patterns with zero waste. Asymmetric drapes, free flowing silhouettes, emerged in Origami. You will find a special bunch of pieces put together to make a bold statement for you! A play of drapes and grand indigo, this collection made in malkha is a celebration of the ancient tradition of natural indigo dying on the most sustainable handwoven textile by our heritage weaving community.
For the young adults and working women, this collection has simple yet unique silhouettes, putting together pleats, collars and tie-ups. The fabrics used in this range of tops are mostly 100% cotton, and few made from Khadi Jamdani. The cotton ones have a handwoven temple border, a traditional weaving design from South India. This is a result of revival project of a lost weaving tradition in certain communities in South India.
A holistic blend of organic cotton and the curative powers of curative Ayurvedic herbs - Tulsi, Sandal and Neem. These herbs not only give the fabric its medicinal benefit, but also their distinctive colours! Wearing these garments is a therapeutic experience for your skin.
Handmade to be versatile and timeless, this black and white collection comes in Khadi Jamdani, organic cotton, handwoven Ikat and Khadi
Indigo at Upasana is a medium of joy, creativity and sustainability for the planet, people and its bodies. We have drawn the power of Indigo to build a classic collection using Khadi and organic Cotton, combining it with traditional crafts as Kalamkari, hand-block printing and Shibori.
Indian poetry written in stunning brush and pen strokes, hand-block printed and screen printed on apparels and accessories to give an interesting twist to the outfits.
Artwear is drawn from the concept of “Wearable Art”. Each style is a unique composition of fabrics of elegant symmetric and geometric patterns. Upasana makes fashion a zero waste space. Fabric scraps are upcycled to inspire a sense of responsibility at large. Here, we break out of the conventional norms of clothing.
Upasana brings together a collection of royalty, grace and elegance through the threads of traditions. The Conscious Luxury range at Upasana adds sustainability to grandeur. “Beauty beyond vanity”
