No two pieces will ever be alike:
We work with Handlooms & all our products are Handcrafted with love by our talented artisans & masters. Since our making process is entirely by hand, slight aberrations in textile, printing, painting, embroidery and sewing are bound to happen and cannot be considered as “damaged.” No two pieces will be alike in anything Handmade & that makes each piece unique.

We try to give as many colour choices as possible per design & give you actual product swatches as colour options on our website.

Khunn, Khun or Khuna from Guledgudda in North Karnataka has a 500 year old tradition of a weave made exclusively as a blouse or “Kubsa” to match their Ilkal saris. This sartorial match of Ilkal & Khun was an episode I shot for अबnoरmal presents Touring Talkies & this beautiful Handloom Khun Choli is a result of that collaboration with Vrunda Sekhar & her weaver network. Powerloom khuns are what one finds most commonly in the market today & original Handloom khuns are very limited & rare to find coz of market economics. It’s our humble effort through the episode & this collaboration to give the beautiful Handloom Khun its pride of place.
Presenting the “Aane-Navilu-Kubsa” in Silver tones. Aane means elephant, Navilu means peacock & Kubsa means Choli in Kannada. This simple weave of the elephant & peacock in alternating squares on a deep indigo base has been made into a katori style Choli with spectacular yoke, neck, sleeves & tassles detailing.
Material: Pure Handloom Khun from Guledgudda.
Please note that colours and tones shown here are as close to the original as possible. Small variations may occur due to light, individual screen peculiarities or resolution.
