Tara and the Tigress
These high quality, luxurious, yet simple clothes are designed in Australia and hand-crafted in India.
The fabric is personally sourced by Tara and her mumma from different pockets of India where artists excel in their local craft, passed down for generations.
Due to capitalism, these ancient art forms are disappearing and the artisans are loosing their livelihoods to industrial mass production. As a result, at T&T we attempt to use hand crafted fabrics as much as possible.
We provide training in sewing and embroidery to widows and illiterate women of Udaipur. So far we have 4 trainees. (Udaipur is a beautiful city of lakes in Rajasthan, India where the T&T workshop is based)
Our team comprises of 2 tailors, a part time pattern master, a supervisor, 4 trainees, Tara and her mum.
Our items are bespoke pieces and any minute imperfections add to the character of each garment, as such is the nature and beauty of hand crafted items.
We hope you enjoy our garments as much as we enjoyed making them.
