STORIES OF STRUCTURES

Our architecture reflects the impact of several cultures on our history. Look closely at a Warah angarkhas and you’ll find the motifs speaking to them

MELANGE OF MOTIFS

Many of these structures are now crumbling, but on closer inspection, yield up details of unspeakable beauty

“Architecture is frozen music”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

BEAUTY IN THE BREAKDOWN

Warah’s angarkhas pick out the subtlest details, such as the moss and lichen on the building faces, to transform it to wearable art

MODERN TAKE

While history is certainly the initial inspiration, Warah’s angarkhas bring in bright, festive ‘mela’ colours to add a touch of modern flair

GROUNDED GLAM

Earthy neutrals also play well with the organic cotton to create a simplicity rooted in a love of nature

‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”

Leonardo Da Vinci

MOMENTS IN TIME

The prints feature delicate floral detailing that references the terracotta ornamentation found in ancient archeological sites
