KARIGARI STUDIO

The term `karigar’, means `artisan’ in Hindustani. It is used to describe someone who is equipped with the specialised skills involved in making things by hand.This knowledge and expertise was usually handed down for generations within a guild or family by skilled karigars who were masters of their craft.

India has a centuries old art and craft heritage that includes rich textile weaving traditions as well as surface pattern and embellishment techniques like printing, dyeing and embroidery. They impart a unique look and feel to fabric lengths and stitched garments. Indian embroidery traditions involve working intricate designs onto fabric with delicate cotton, silk, silver and gold metal thread. It was embellished with sequins and precious stones and favoured by royalty to evoke a sense of luxury and opulence.

We invite you to free your imagination and give shape to your creativity with customised orders for zardosi embroidery at our Karigari Studio. Come create the perfect outfit that is truly and uniquely, yours.

Koskii Super Brides – The Girl Behind the Veil
2017-08-15

There is a Super Bride in all of us waiting to come out and show herself to the world. Whether one aspires to marriage or not, once a girl does decide to tie the knot, she knows that this day is all about her. Often times, during the course of wedding planning, certain ideas and themes get away from the bride and she ends up just doing what her family and friends want. Afterall, India and her traditions date back thousands of years and we know that our weddings will be grand and opulent; but they have all started to look the same, don’t you think? Trends are changing now, and we see the emergence of the Super Brides. A Super Bride is one who asserts her individuality and creates an impact wherever she goes, so of course, it goes without saying that she will be personalising her wedding! We know she is a powerhouse, a force to be reckoned with, a SUPER WOMAN in her own right, but how does she choose to express it? Is she an artist, an explorer, a fashionista? Who is the girl behind the veil? We’ve zeroed in on 5 personas or avatars, to begin […]

Let’s start with the ground rules and then break it down by each event. I personally live quite far away from my extended family and haven’t been exposed to the usual weekly wedding of a different relative on a regular basis. The first wedding I attended, I wore a little black dress. While it’s always a classic and I technically didn’t do anything wrong, I felt COMPLETELY out of place as everyone was dressed in combinations of bright and vivid colours (I was forgiven because I was only fourteen at the time). Although I looked “Nice” according to my relatives, I definitely came across like I didn’t make an effort. So to avoid repeating this faux pas, here are the guidelines I’ve created for myself ever since. Always, ALWAYS have these on hand, whether it is wedding season or not: Accessories In a little shoe box at the back of my wardrobe is a treasure trove […]
