- Based out of Udaipur, Rajasthan, Aavaran was started by Alka Sharma, a textile graduate from Indian Institute of Crafts and Design, Jaipur.
- Aavaran’s attempt is to evolve the traditional ‘Dabu’, Mud resist technique of printing, specifically ‘Phentiya’ print, while consistently innovating on design and quality.
- Style, minimalism and comfort describe our range of hand dyed and hand block printed garments, home furnishings and accessories. The print draws from traditional motif repertoire while fabrics, cuts and sillhouettes are contemporary and cater to all lifestyles. The essential character of the craft is retained and enhanced.
