SOPHIE'S GUIDE TO - RAJASTHAN

Our creative director Sophie Holt takes us through her Rajasthan travel tips and go-to itinerary after her recent inspiration trip.

 

For anyone interested in fashion, Rajasthan is a breathtaking place to visit. It has a deeply ingrained design culture of textiles and artisanal printing techniques.

 

The vibrancy of colour in Rajasthan is like nowhere else in the world. The major cities are also named by a colour, Jaipur is called the pink city and Jodhpur is the blue city. Even the women at the local markets coordinate their outfits to match their produce baskets. It's such an immersive and sensory overload.

A LITTLE HISTORY

Meaning the land of kings, Rajasthan the northern state of India bordering Pakistan has been occupied by many tribes over the last 5 thousand years making it a vibrant fusion of culture and architecture.
