Mantra By Shalini James!

Being an ardent  lover of Indian textiles,just couldn't hold back my self from sharing the Indian By choice by "Mantra Design Studio"

Mantra Design studio is a venture by Shalini James.Indian textiles and textile crafts are used optimally to create a chic look.Mantra is distinguised by its sense of design and Indian rustic colours.

I would always go with what their Mantra is :)-Yes it is  a lovely potpourri of beautiful Indian textiles in silhouettes that are sometimes traditional, sometimes contemporary and mostly, a unique mix of both!They have long jackets, angrakhas, embroidery, hints of Zari, textures, Kalamkaris, Mashru, a touch of velvet, stoles with frayed edges, printed pants, anarkalis, layering, palazzos, soft printed muls and so on .. a collage of fabrics is what it is! However, still, very Indian by choice!

They were in news recently coz they designed the sarees for the school of dance" Mamangam "By the film person Rima Kallingal.


Mamangam ,the dance school at Kochi and the person behind it..the stunning "Rima Kallingal"
