Sustainable fashion handmade by global artisans
As a child I used to watch my mother do fine hand embroidery and stitching. I was
entranced by such delicate skill and craftsmanship and mesmerized by the gorgeous colours, designs and paintings.
I am a qualified Engineer and has been working in corporate for 15 year and is passionate about art.
Being a painter by nature my first love is playing with colours on all sorts of media be it canvas, fabric or glass. I have also always loved traditional handmade Indian embroideries and paintings on textiles.
As result I introduced “Dhruveesha Boutique”, a collection of exotic pieces of chikankari, suzani, hand block print, katha work, tye and dye(bandhani), hand woven fabric.
Dhruveesha Boutique is a Sydney online (slow fashion), boutique. We want to bring the beauty and rich history of traditional textiles to the world. All of our products are handcrafted with meticulous care in accordance with ancient traditions. So much of fashion today is mass produced on an industrial scale. We embrace a slower, kinder and more sustainable system of production.
Our aim is to showcase socially and ethically responsible fashion. We want to promote handmade products and empower and support the skilled artisans who make them.
We want to restore a true sense of meaning and value to the clothes that we make. To bring back a fiber to hanger mentality and a true sense of connection with every stage of the supply chain and production process.
Instead of relying on machines we provide a source of income to the skilled artisans whose incredible work has become devalued in the age of mass production and consumption.
We embrace thousand-year-old eco-friendly manufacturing and design techniques.
Our unique designs are comfortable, durable and have a timeless elegance.
