Gina says,

This is our love letter to India - home away from home. 

The LTD edition series of pillowcases and scrunchies are made using the same luxurious mulberry silk but hand-dyed by the all women team at 2Up2Down Textiles in Bangalore, India using native flowers and leaves to form unique prints and designs. 

This collab is very close to my heart because the opportunity to work with these incredibly talented women came in the midst of the pandemic and that meant we were in a position to provide work to them when everything else was shut. The project also uses flowers and leaves native to India making it truly one of a kind. The marigold flowers used are discarded temple flowers, dried, powdered to make the orange-yellow speckles. 

Artwork details 

The project took more than 2 months to complete. 

Every pillowcase is unique and no artificial dyes were used. Every print you see is imprinted by nature itself. Note these pillowcases are slightly lighter in weight than our regular cases to so it's easy for the natural dyes to penetrate. 

The hours that go in creating these make them a premium product and the price reflects the same. 

The full moon is created using two hand dyeing techiniques - Japanese Itajime Shibori and eco printing. The grey hue comes from alkanet. 

Summer love with the wonderful peachy hues is created using Manjishta/ Indian madder and is extensively used to treat skin diseases in Ayurveda. The leaf imprints on it are made from the leaves of Guava, Silver Oak and Geranium. 

Marigold fields is filled with golden speckles and petals -courtesy of discarded temple marigold flowers and powdered marigold.
