Basava hosts Tina Eapen and Kale Nele
Shining the spotlight on Indian crafts, Basava holds a pop-up featuring Tina Eapen and Kale Nele this weekend. Inspired by the mesmerising colours of monsoon, Tina Eapen’s Mausam brings together hues of blue, pink, purple and green on saris and kurtas. The saris, crafted from handloom Chanderi silk, linen and khadi cotton have been treated with shibori and discharge printing techniques. Kale Nele, is the brainchild of Jhanhavi Kulkarni, originally from Dharwad. Now based in Bengaluru, Kulkarni’s aim is to keep the weaving of North Karnataka’s khunn fabric alive. Kulkarni will be bringing home decor products like cushion covers, door hangings, table runners and accessories.
Rs 250 up (Kale Nele), Rs 1,900 up (Tina Eapen). At Basava, Basavanagudi. Details: 26561940
