Sharoti Duffle Bag

  • The third bag from the Freedom Series is names after Sharoti who joined us in the first batch of trainees. The colour red is associated with a broad spectrum of emotions - energy, war, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color and rightly so I named it after Sharoti.

    A calm woman who displays various layers and emotional facets and can be moody in an amusing manner. There’s a glimpse of love for the craft in the way she handles the job at hand but I’ve seen her suddenly get hassled at something irrelevant (quite funnily) and then quickly regain her composure in no time. The energy of red seems to run through her in real time.

    One of my favourite pieces from the collection; it has tit-bits of our first ever test screen-printed fabric. If you notice closely, you’ll find one layer of the color leaked on the first wash and what might have been a rejected fabric end if I were to sell it in a traditional market becomes the most beautiful detail of this handcrafted design. The hues merge in a pinkish delight and piece well with the strong red silk squares.
