Each state in India is like a seperate country, with unique and specialised foods, languages, traditions and crafts. Kanartaka (the state in which we started our L.M journey) is famous for its silks. It produces around 45% of the countries mulberry silk.
Dinesh runs the silk mill that weaves the silk that we use for our silk styles. Silk has been apart of his family business for a long time. In 1945 Dinesh’s grandfather moved to Bangalore and set up the silk mill that stands here today.
It is passion that keeps Dinesh running the family business and working directly with him is so important to us. We have formed a relationship that allows for trust, transparency and honesty.
He has been able to take us to meet his reelers and the farmers from who he sources his silk yarn. We have been able to have conversations with those people and put a face to the fabric. It's allowed us to have a deeper appreciation and respect for the fabric, acknowledging the many steps that go into creating this product.
