LITTLE WHITE BIRD

BY

SS17  COLLECTION

THE LABEL

 Any label is a showcase of the designer's sensibilities and design values, and Qatrah is no different.

 

Having been born and raised in India, Qatrah's head designer, Charu Wadhwa, has her sensibilities rooted firmly in her country of birth. Through Qatrah, she revisits her Indian roots and re-interprets its cultural heritage through its craftsmen.


Qatrah is her endeavour to provide a global platform to crafts traditions that are dying out. Each piece in the collection has passed through the hands of one artisan to another. The end-result is a collection that has gone straight from the skillful craftsmen to those who share an appreciation for all things handcrafted.


The slow-fashion brand is a creative balance of artisanal techniques with luxurious fabrics in relaxed silhouettes. Each garment is crafted from natural and eco-friendly materials like cotton and silk  culminating into a deceptively simple yet subtly nuanced piece.
. 

THE COLLECTION 

LITTLE WHITE BIRD is a whimsical collection of luxuriously soft hand-woven summer fabrics that are intricately hand-embroidered in the venerable craft of Daraj and Chikankari in folksy birdie motifs, embellished with bright and playful tassels.
