This week we are celebrating the color that every woman can agree is a timeless season-less classic.
From skirts to blouses, dresses, shoes and any accessory. Red is the one color that is perfect to coordinate. From top to bottom....(Black and white doesn’t count ).
This Fall I created some very special pieces in ‘Lava Red’ keeping each style as versatile as possible, so you can wear them at the office or to any social event. To add to the beauty of this color, I am sharing with you the story of how they were created. Keep reading below...
I am working with a small factory in Delhi, which specializes only in 100% silk. They only take small quantities because they are focused on quality and not quantity.
They mainly produce high end Saris, which are sold locally and are very exclusive. The owner invested in a graphic team that creates the most beautiful digitized prints, in huge scales. See picture below (notice the size of the dress on the left)
Digitized prints don’t need minimums and most Saris are one of a kind. Nothing is over produced and no waste is created.
I, off course, don’t design Saris, but after I met the owner of this factory and explained to him my brand's mission, he agreed to create some unique pieces that would marry my design aesthetic with his workers beautiful craftsmanship and luxurious silk qualities.
During my trip to India, I also found a leather manufacturer in Gurugram, in the state of Haryana. They work with very prestigious brands in Europe and the US and what I loved about this factory is that it's literally in a big house in the middle of a suburb. And all the workers are treated like family.
They also take small orders (less than 25 pieces) and their workmanship is absolutely beautiful. Their leather comes from Chennai and are not treated with chromium, which is extremely harmful to their workers health. Chromium-free leather also extends the life of the leather by decades if not centuries. No wonder vintage leather is still the best, it could last forever if well taken care of.
Ni.nêh is not just about sustainability and high end design, but we are about Dignity and Respect.
Make sure to check these 'Red Hot' pieces when we open our online shop this October.
Love and thanks!
