Sihasn- Crafting Beautiful Stories With Indian Fabrics on Modern Furniture

Known all over the world, India's rich textile heritage often converts fabrics into a piece of art that graces our daily lives and cherished occasions. Having enriched Indian garments for centuries, our textile traditions have fought odds and cultural invasions. Though appreciated by a few, most of our textile art forms are on the brink of extinction. A niche community that consists of textile revivalists, designers and retailers are investing a great deal of time and energy to preserve and celebrate our long-standing traditions not limiting to garments but home decor as well and one such company is Sihasn that drapes beautiful Indian fabrics on modern pieces of furniture.

A Little More About The Kantha Collection:

Recipient of the Shilp Guru National Award in 2009, Takdira Begum has single-handedly reinvented the simple Kantha stitch. A 2500 year old craft, indigenous to Bengal, the art of Kantha is renowned all over the world. Over the years, the art began to fade but in 1980s, Kantha came back on the scene with a few British and American connoisseurs exhibiting the art in a few upscale galleries.

Takdira Begum has crafted beautiful geometric patterns with precise symmetry that are near impossible to achieve by hand. Sihasn has crafted limited but beautiful pieces with this Kantha collection that can be a cynosure of all eyes when placed in your abode.

Sitting On Stories With Sihasn:

For centuries, artisans all over the country have crafted stories through the art of weaving, dyeing and embroidering on Indian fabrics. With bespoke furniture pieces from Sihasn, we can add an unique touch to our homes. The collection celebrates the versatility of the original Indian rug - Rajasthani dhurries, the shrewdness of the nomadic herders of the Banni tribe that are inclined to not waste any fabric with the art of patchwork, the traditional art of block printing on Mashru silk- Kutchi Ajrakh, the intricate weaving techniques of Naga Shawl and much more on functional and versatile pieces of furniture that can turn a dull corner into inviting spots! A few pieces are designed to include storage options blending functionality with aesthetics to celebrate smaller spaces, now that's what we love!!!
