A range of hand stitched journals with layers of colour and ink blots. The process required us to work in layers with multiple prints and gold. Today, this will be perceived as design but for me it is also a social message.
Vitiligo is a medical condition where there is loss of skin colour in blotches. This causes psychological distress and there is a huge stigma attached to it in society. I have closely seen people suffer in silence. Let us try and be a little humane in our acceptance.
I have spent more than a decade in the creative sector and while I built Anand Prakash on a solid bedrock of innovation and creativity; I also would like to be able to support social causes that are close to my heart. All of us could be change makers in our own little way therefore lets start by one good deed at a time.
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
Testing new pastel colours for our soon to be launched bag charms.
Our master screen printers mix various colours to reach the right shade, while most have no knowledge or training in colour mixing; they have honed their skills by trial and error through an experience of a few decades. To be able to see them do it with their spatula is sheer joy
Hopefully you will be able to witness this in the coming months where we are planning to share our techniques and processes through carefully curated workshops and demonstrations.
Wishing you a Happy Holi!

Colour has played an important part in my creative journey, be it recycled papers or with stationery. Here, I experiment with colour on the spine of the journal. In the past, the cover usually got all the attention. The colours have been printed by hand using silk screen in our signature style. Lots of experimentation in progress! More soon. Now available at stores.
