Remember the lovely Creative Corners's of Karthik Vaidhyanathan's home in Bangalore?
He's back this time with Varnam~ A colourful line of home furnishings.
A full-time media professional with a passion for interior design, Karthik's Varnam showcases the amazing beauty of traditional Indian handmade textiles.
Karthik explains, "Varnam is a sincere attempt to highlight some of the inherent beautiful qualities that traditional Indian fabrics possess.
The product line consists of table runners, curtains, cushions, etc. all handmade from Indian sarees and blouse materials.Pillow Covers made from saree and blouse materials...
Table runners...I felt these were apt since Indian stories incorporate some of the most beautiful patterns, colours and motifs. The sarees include traditional nine yard Maharashtrian sarees or ‘Navvaris’, cotton sarees from Tamil nadu , Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.
I have also made use of the very popular and blouse material traditionally used by women along the Maharashtra-Karnataka border, ‘Khan’."
The products are simple with no added embellishments.
Varnam is being showcase at The Ants Store in Indiranagar from October 22nd to 24th, 2010. If you are in Bangalore do drop by and check out the stunning range of home furnishings from Varnam.
