Aranya means forest.

Aranya means forest.

True to its name Aranya was lush.

The most amazing part of this journey was this collaboration with Aranya Naturals located in a valley in the Kanandevan hills.

The group is differenly abled and are very skilled in natural dyeing and Shibori.

The couple of days spent there was not just a great textile adventure but was also a much needed detox from the mundane of the city life.

Surrounded by all that green/ blue mountains and a cool climate definitely has a great bearing on the mind.

I feel like there was a calling for me in those valleys.

The artisans creating the slow textiles with great care & attention to detail is fantastic.
