    Colour Edition: The Greys!

    Grey is a personal favourite. So naturally, it gets used in Moksha but a little sparingly. The dye is a little unpredictable so we don’t risk using it very often. But more importantly, we keep it a little elusive. Grey does not have too many variants – just Light Grey and Dark Grey.

  • What is Batik?

    Moksha specialises in Batik and is committed to saving this extremely difficult skill from vanishing into oblivion. Many of my clients have asked me what Batik is and why I keep saying it is so difficult to create a product or why it takes so long to deliver a saree or a kurta material. This …

  • Inspirations

    The Sun inspires me – it’s that perennial source of energy and always lifts gloom. Coffee does too..anytime, anywhere, though I have to admit, I am a little partial about Starbucks. And I find the Owl completely fascinating .. and its alleged wisdom too!
