The Monad collection uses traditional skills of Sujani embroidery from Bihar.
- Fabrics : Traditional classics like Tussar silk, hand-woven Gicha cotton blend, cotton silk, silk organza.
- Colours: Black, ivory, madder, camel, grey are the main colours of the story.
- Silhouettes are inspired by various cultures / world culture.
Monad is indivisible and ultimately a simple entity, such as a person. The pieces are a cross pollination of influences from multiple cultures and seem to belong everywhere and nowhere.

‘MAITAKE’ takes inspiration from the transcendence of the mind. It seeks to escape from the real world in exchange for an ideal one.

A subjective experience of the distortion of time changing perception like a still memory in motion. The exotic mixture of light-weight hand woven pure Eri, Tassar, Ahimsa silks, Cashmere and Pashmina in warm beige hues capture the emotion.

Surface design manipulation with wood and silk thread work adds on to the experience of wearing P.E.L.L.A.
Note: The patterns in this collection have been developed tessellating a single block of fabric and requires the minimum of measurement & sewing.

- From its incipiency, every sari was tested on the benchmark of wearability, convenience, comfort to resonate with our active young ladies while quietly weaving into the narrative a tale of revived weaves, skillfully handspun fine cottons and luxurious Zari tissues.

· Standing strong on innovation, reverence of tradition and doggedly persistence, this assemblage is a culmination of years of toil. Time was spent convincing weavers to rework on a highly technical weave of “Rung – Kat” that was almost extinct and will, again, find an audience now.

Fabric trend at LFW 16· Muslins, woven with finest handspun cotton that the country has to offer, gossamer like Jamdanis give a relaxing, calming option for the scorching summer sun. To complete the spectrum of day to night options, festive eveningwear was also revisited with preamble of a beautiful non-silk option – Aab-ae-rawan (woven like a dream) shimmering, pure Zari sari. This molten gold like textile has a tender, malleable drape decorated with vintage, Mughal motif.

Techniques- A woman’s eternal love for jewellery resonates in our motific coinage of vintage pieces into the warp and weft of our fresh experimental creations while successfully rendering a 3D effect.

·Colors trend at LFW 16- We have played with the hues of summer in shades like corals, light blues, pinks, beige that mellow the lines of demarcation between national and international, lending a pertinent fashion perspective to a jetsetter woman.
