Niram is Kalki’s first collection of handcrafted home decor.
The pared-down jacquard weave plays up the embroidered floral and leaf motifs that adorn our pretty pouffes and cozy cushions. Inviting parrot greens and resplendent hibiscus reds pop out just enough to warm up your interiors, while pale lemon yellows and rose-tinted pinks are easy on the eyes.
The contrast base/back fabric has cheery, tropical prints that are comfortingly familiar: traditional bedding in south Tamilnadu has sported these vibrant patterns for years. The filling is made from Ilavam panju, the silk cotton taken from the pods of the bountiful Bombax tree, every part of which has medicinal value.
