The exquisite technique of danka work has existed for over 400 years now and is almost falling prey to oblivion’s curse; this fine practice is slowly fading out due to lack of awareness and appreciation. But, designer Shruti Bhandari has brought it back in vogue with her latest collection!

Her collection ranges from throw away jackets that can be worn with Indian as well as western silhouette to drape saris with regal chic embroidery and beautiful anarkalis.

“I was sensitive to the fact that danka work is going to become a dying art soon, since the younger generations of the artisans are not taking interest in it due to lack of monetary appreciation. So I am bringing it back in vogue, reviving its essence in the modern space,” says Bhandari.

It makes sense to invest in items that last more than one season and Shruti Bhandari’s new collection is here to stay! This collection is available at the Water Field Road, Bandra West, Mumbai.
