The Khalarai Collection – Sustainable Craft Show

This was easily one of my favourite collections from FPW – Ed

‘The Khalarai’ is deeply entrenched in a serious endeavor to revive and rejuvenate traditional craft, specifically embroideries in Pakistan. Drawing inspiration from interior Sindh’s age-old embroideries, the atelier meticulously reinvents stitches such as the Hurmich, Seesha Tanka, Moti Tanka and Heera Tanka on fine quality organza and silk.

True to the ateliers revivalist ethos of incorporating traditional craft in a contemporary narrative, The Khalarai introduces traditional silhouettes with contemporary twists across the range of intricately worked Ghararas, Saris, Dupattas and Ajkans on neutral tones including off white, beige and grey.
