Our first collection – One clover, and a bee,
is inspired by poetess Emily Dickinson writing about how
we may not need too much to build on our dreams, in the poem – To make a revery.
Made from completely hand spun and hand woven cotton fabrics, woven by women in Maheshwar, empowering them with fair wages and financial independence, along with the artisans who helped embroider and stitch it.
The value of every product from Taaka goes beyond just the material, and into the lives of those who helped make it, one stitch at a time.
Scallop Meadow Handloom Top
See that beautiful detail of scallops on the neckline and hemline ?… All handmade! It takes us one day to just embroider these using a special edge stitch technique and then hand trim it finely for the perfect finishing.
Adorned by doting flower embroidery on the sleeves and the buttons (look closer), this top makes us dreamy with love. This one took us a few tries to get it right, and much was celebrated once we hit success 🙂
