Woven Riches, a Mother Daughter Duo established in 2017 by us; Namita & Reea.
This was our way of preserving our family roots in India, whilst doing our bit to help. Our aim is to collaborate the contemporary Western designs with the vibrant colours. We sketch our designs from our home in Northern Ireland and our small team of artisans in the Pink City of Jaipur use traditional Indian techniques such as block printing and hand embroidery to bring our products to life. We are a close-knit company and make our products ethically and sustainably, shown by the love and care poured into the attention to detail. We use pure Indian cotton and natural dyes where possible to maximise the human's connection with earth, as a humble reminder that the simple things in life are the most important.
It all began when a little girl sat in her handmade cotton dress was watching her mother stitching and sewing. That little girl was me. ‘How uncool’ I thought. Little did I realise the fine art it was. It wasn’t until I had left India, my eyes opened to the beauty I was immersed in, yet I was completely oblivious to it. Every product has a unique story with magic in the hands and eyes that pour over a needle.
Woven Riches is our humble attempt to bring India a little closer to Belfast and beyond. Machines are now taking over the world and us at Woven Riches aim to preserve the beauty of handmade work. This is why we want every product to have a handcrafted touch, enabling the honoured techniques to be passed on to further generations.
From Hand to Heart,
