Fabindia has launched its annual festive collection - Rajwada. In this collection, Fabindia has focused on fabrics that celebrate the textile tradition of India, and slow fashion by creating pieces that are timeless and classic.
The garments used in this collection explore archival motifs inspired by records found in museum records in textiles such as Benarasi silk, tanchoi silk, cutwork brocade and zari-embroidered Maheshwari. The color palette is vibrant and captures the mood of the season with shades such as panna green, rani pink, moga and neelambar blue. The collection includes Kanjeevaram silk saris, Benarasi phool jaal saris, kantha-embroidered jackets and Maheshwari dupattas. It also includes extra weft jamdani saris in black and indigo, which is a collaboration with Karomi, an organisation that works with artisans in West Bengal.
The collection draws on India’s shared heritage, while creating opportunities for sustaining livelihoods. It is designed to create a sense of luxury and to tap into timelessness.
