Aparupa Ghosh's Syu and a giveawayFriday, December 12, 2014
Colour. Blocks. Unlimited. When I saw Syu's page the colour is what hit me. As I kept looking at the pictures the rawness, the handmade earthiness and a certain honesty of the work stayed with me. Such interesting fabrics. Such bold colour and pattern. I like the unabashed statement that Aparupa Ghosh makes with Syu. Jit Chowdhury an artist whose work I fell in love with on instagram sent me this link. Syu is a recently launched clothing and accessory label that makes beautiful block printed fabric and currently their range of products include stoles, sarees, canvas +leather bags and clutches.
And recently I had the good fortune of meeting the talented duo, when they travelled to Bombay. It was interesting to note that the creator of Syu was as quiet as her designs are bold.
" The distance between restoring tradition and moving on with the contemporary can be bridged by a thread. In Sanskrit, syu defines this very thread that runs across the length and breadth of fabrics to create something wholesome. Therefore at syu, we work with our hands to lend character to a product, that’s lost when machine-made. Using traditional textile techniques and natural materials, we try to shape a trend that you love while staying close to a method we love." - Syu
For all those who want to buy Syu's gorgeous clutches they are selling right now on Jaypore.
