REFASH x CHAMBRAY & CO
The Spring Summer 20' collection 'ORENDA' by the brand resonates with a story of a nomad with beautiful dreams living a city lifestyle. With a needle that weaves stories on every garment highlighting Indian craft sown by the hands of under privileged women of India - It binds the two worlds, one which is modern & the other which is deeply rooted. Each garment is a reminder of every effort made by mankind to use what's been wasted and to save what's left of mother nature.
We have recently launched this collection on Refash that features elevated basics that combine modern aesthetics featuring local Indian craft.
