When it comes to fashion, there is no better muse than one’s mother!
Shilpkiriti is run by the mother-daughter duo, Shilpa & Tanvi Rastogi.
It always fills up my heart when I look at my mother’s artistic capabilities through her designs. I remember when she first started this work with all its uncertainties lurking through every step. All the possibilities that existed and the myriad paths that lay ahead of her. The dreams and ambitions nested in her and her journey towards accomplishing them.
I think I unknowingly began imbibing her aesthetics, eye for detail and an art-filled world view. I’d always revel in watching my mother curate amazing ensembles out of anything she would get her hands on. I attribute my love for traditional outfits to my mother as I grew up so influenced by her sense of style. It’s safe to say that I’ve always celebrated my mother’s influence on my designs/aesthetics. And that’s how the name of our Label Shilpkiriti was born, her name (‘Shilp’ – Shilpa) creation through me (‘Kiriti’ – Tanvi).
Shilpkiriti works on traditional crafts and art forms like handwork, zardozi, velvet shawls, potli and more. None of our work is machine-made. It’s all 100% handcrafted.
At Shilpkiriti, you will never find multiple pieces of a particular design. We enjoy putting in the extra effort to provide exclusivity to all our customers.
