Special Showcase: The Whole 9

Based in Los Angeles, Mudita Vij works with artisans in Varanasi, India to hand-stitch luxurious home decor with silk sarees. 

I have always been proud of my culture and heritage. With an abundant of colorful, diverse, royal textiles and fabrics available in India, I wanted to be able to promote and spread them around the world. Not being able to include them in my everyday wear, I wondered if I could do more with them and that’s when I decided to make home decor pieces using the fabrics from Sarees, making them unique , one of a kind pieces!
