STORY


Memories of Home in Summer

Our Debut Collection

A collection of ten coordinated pieces that are custom dyed, woven and stitched by hand in micro batches in fabrics that tell stories.

Rani & Reine was born out of a desire to incorporate traditional handcrafted Indian textiles, via a transparent and sustainable supply chain, into beautiful garments for textile lovers and aesthetes of all shapes and sizes.

Our designs seek to bring the wearer comfort, freedom of movement and a chance to experience the beauty of thoughtfully crafted handmade textiles.

The palette and motifs were inspired by the flora, fauna and landscapes in India; the reds of blooming Gulmohar trees (Delonix Regia) with their rich brown seed pods, intertwining allamanda vines (Ghonta Phool) with its luscious yellow blossoms, a lemon pansy butterfly alighting on a hibiscus in a garden.

Seaside and river scenes are captured through an old lens. The muted and veiled tones of early colour and black and white photography set the mood. A sun-bleached castle ruin against an indigo sky offers up texture and colour.

Essence

A seed, a splash of pigment, the echo of a loom.

Fabric swirls, embraces. 

The interplay between natural fibre, colour and texture.

The magic of handmade.
