On the other wall, is displayed an Angrakha woven in fine muslin, from the archives of The Registry of Sarees. Believed to be about 120 years old and hand spun, sourced from an Awadhi family that were courtiers at the time of the Nawabs. Their particular preference towards wearing stitched silhouettes, popularised by the Mughals, led to the introduction of Angrakha that today remains an important Indian sartorial tradition. Imbibing these historical narratives while appreciating the geometric construction allows us at Yali to develop products that reflect a sensibility that is empathetic to a disciplined use of fabric. Observe keenly that the way light is dispersed in all the pieces and is weightless is a salient design intricacy that can be attributed to process, materiality and skill!
