Each Chandan-Whittle piece is an ode to India and its heritage, a celebration of the colour and chaos intrinsic to life there. For founder and designer Kam Chandan-Whittle, this is a chance to honour her family’s Indian roots whilst celebrating local artisans and their handicraft skills. This striking cushion cover made from the softest organic cotton is reminiscent of the joyfulness of Indian summer days. The fabric is handwoven by a womens’ co-operative in Karur, South India, that ensures fair wages and economic independence for its workers.
This piece has two vibrant sides: pink with a subtle geometric pattern in yellow and vivid mustard yellow, and is finished with beautiful handmade ties.

Jaali is the Hindi word for screen, a veil or shield between viewer and viewed. This intricate and multi-layered design that consists of two layers of patterns overlaid onto each other encourages exploration and interpretation. Digitally printed onto fine cotton, the vibrancy of the minimal colour palette allows these napkins to be combined with a variety of tableware, both classic and modern. They're versatile enough to go beyond the table and would make excellent pocket squares or neckties. These napkins are sold as a set of two.

I'm drawn to worn out textures and odd forms, things like beautiful subtle reflections and shadows, the perfect balance that exists in nature. Everything has interesting patterns and textures; I love exploring architectural elements and playing with dimension, space and depth.READ THE STORY
"Most of the time, my ideas for a pattern start and end in totally different places, I identify elements that I want to draw out from my photographs, translate them into a print, with an idea of the application. Digital printing plays a vital role in my process because I require all the complex layers, textures & colors in my prints to come through."
Bindu loves for her work to evoke a sense of nostalgia, with textures and forms that are oddly familiar and perhaps comforting, ideally drawing people in and giving them a glimpse of an alternate reality, even if briefly.
We wish you all the best Bindu - thank you for your time!
