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 embodies joy and radiance with its vivid yellow tone and delicate feathery pattern. It is hand screen printed by a womens’ co-operative in Karur, South India, that ensures fair wages and economic independence for its workers. Inspired by the lively energy of India and its imperfect beauty, it is finished with beautiful handmade ties.

Safomasi began as a way for us to work together and combine our passion for design and travel, with the idea that we would spend time in different places and gather inspiration to create collections that captured our experiences and observations.READ THE STORY
You have such a great name - how did you arrive at it?
Thank you! Safomasi is a mix of both of our names - Sarah Fotheringham (Safo) and Maninder Singh (masi). As all our designs are inspired by our personal travels and observations, we wanted a brand name that reflected us, yet at the same time sounded a bit abstract, like it could come from any part of the world. We were playing around with lots of ideas, came up with Safomasi and it stuck!
We love colour, pattern and detail. Our style is playful and often figurative. We find things that seem the same, but are actually different, interesting. It was this observation in Pushkar that from afar all the camels looked the same, but up close you could see that they all had their own styles and forms of decoration that inspired the Different Different Camels design. Similarly the Mithai design records the variety of Indian sweets - we've illustrated 169 different mithai in our repeat.
Could you share what you plan to do next with Safomasi?
Put our patterns on more products! We‘ve got a new line of bags and accessories coming out soon, and we've been experimenting with a few pieces of clothing too. Plus of course new collections inspired by new places...
