Nameg, the handloom haven tucked away in a quiet gully near Lake Market, is now speaking the dialect of traditional Lambani and Kosa through a new collection of saris.

“Kosa silk is a Sanskrit name for tussore silk and this limited-edition collection by Nameg is a modern homage to the rich heritage of the silk weavers who have been working for the last few generations and many of them are even award winners. The simplicity and eye-catching designs on lustrous Kosa saris make them a collectible to pass down through generations,” said Namita Dashora, one of the owners of Nameg.


Lambani is a style of embroidery using a mix of thread, mirror and cross stitches that originated in Karnataka. “Nameg has given a contemporary touch to the traditional comfort of Ikal cotton fabric with finely detailed embroidered borders and pallus,” added Namita.

This collection features a mix of eye-catching colours that can be draped through seasons and occasions. An album...
