I practically traveled to Jaipur twice, the final time was a couple of years in the past with my pal Leslie for an ACE Camps journey the place we’d have studied block printing collectively. She went, however I stayed behind as a result of my son was too little (nonetheless in diapers) and I couldn’t think about leaving him behind for 14 days. Now that my son is way older (he’s 7!), I’m open to India once more and would like to see it.
India fascinates me… I bear in mind after I moved to Europe in 2009 and began seeing how cleverly Europeans blended Indian prints with extra fashionable, European kinds. The French do that so properly, together with the British, Dutch, and the Danes. It actually impressed me. That’s additionally across the time after I found Minna Hildebrandt.
Minna is the Founding father of the Danish house model Bungalow, I’ve visited their stands a number of instances on the bigger European gala’s. Like me, Minna has at all times been fascinated by the wonder and colours of India, the sights, smells, music, individuals, sounds, and intrigued by their conventional crafts and handiwork.
