We are very excited to stock the wonderful Nila Rubia brand at The Owl & The Pussycat Boutique! Nila Rubia is a label rooted in the Mughal tradition, creating stunning pieces expertly hand crafted in family run workshops in India. Ancient techniques are kept alive by an inspiring community of colour masters, wooden block carvers, dyers and tailors. Nila Rubia is led by a desire to preserve traditional methods, love natural resources and champion community development.
Carefully woven on traditional looms, every pieces is unique in colour combination and design.
The fabrics are gorgeous: ethically sourced organic cottons, bamboo silk/linen and warm woven wools, with merino wool added, for extra softness. The jacquard weave wools are woven in Amritsar before being made into garments in Jaipur.
Azo free dyes are used, and natural vegetable dyes are used wherever possible. These garments use authentic traditional techniques.
The work is done by highly skilled craftspeople to an extremely high quality and often the lady artists who sew the garments can work in their own homes, incorporating the work into their everyday lives.
We love the colourful prints, the super soft and warm coats and floaty skirts we have in the shop at the moment - perfect for autumn and winter!
