Seema Krish: Indian Textiles

September 28, 2009

I recently heard from a talented textile designer in Boston, Seema Krish, and had a first look at her newly launched website and felt excited to share her work here today. Seema translates traditional Indian techniques of applique, hand block printing and embroidery along with memories of her childhood into fabrics that are modern and lively — of course words cannot fully describe this sort of thing, one needs to see for themselves… So here, have a look… :)

Seema Krish: Indian Textiles

I want these pillows above for my bedroom! So badly! If you’re familiar with Calvin Klein Home, Jack Lenor Larsen, Robert Allen and Donghia fabrics (RA and Donghia being two of my personal favorites of to-the-trade fabrics) you will be impressed to know that Seema has had her hand in designing for them in addition to her new line of textiles that I’m sure will be a hit. I personally love her pillow collection, especially in her anjeeri, sona, rani pink and peacock blues colors. Gorgeous, and of course I find that she’s used Hindi words to name the colors in her collection most fascinating… especially to learn what each of them means (learn here).

Psst: Have a glance at her blog, Textile Swatches, or perhaps spend an hour there (like I just did!). What an informative blog!

    I love Indian textiles because of the colors and patterns used. If you are a fan of Indian like me then you must check http://www.johnrobshaw.com/ whose collection is delightful.
    Thanks for sharing Seema’s work. I’ll add her to my eye candy list :)

      Seema – Have you tried to connect with Danielle who owns the online shop based in the Netherlands – Le Souk? She is also the founder/editor of the Style Files blog. I think she’d love some of your things…
