We have used numerous authentic ones to decorate our journals and pencils. Soon, the handprinted Kalaghoda map with information on historic monuments in the vicinity, will be available free of cost for our visitors to explore the precincts.

Birds

While I was a child, I would observe sparrows from our veranda, their movements and chirping were naturally synchronised. Parrots in their bright plumage, screeching-by in riotous unison would fascinate me to no end. I would climb the Guava tree in our back yard and find numerous fruits half eaten by them. Then during schooling at Wynberg Allen, my brush with nature and the avian species left an indelible mark that has stayed with me till today. 
Three years ago, I decided to create a range of products with “Birds” as a theme, this was also because of the urban landscape that I lived-in had no space for them. My team researched birds, their habitats, common name, scientific name, field characters, distribution, habits, food, nesting and calling signs. We commissioned an artist to create a limited edition of water colour paintings on birds, these were mounted on framable handmade cards. We then expanded our range with handmade journals, each with textile spines and printed covers. We then went on to create metal bookmarks in the shape of a few birds. Each product comes with a booklet explaining the detailed habitat and characteristics of each bird featured in the range.

Being self taught and having started as a designer with an untrained mind, I always chose subjects and ideas that were close to my heart. I was never one of those that followed trends and forecasts. The road that I chose was less travelled and thats made all the difference.

This range took three years to complete because I couldn’t devote enough time in designing the packaging and information that would go along with it. All said and done, it has now been released and is a must for stationery collectors and bird aficionados.

Kala Ghoda Artwork

We commissioned this artwork to commemorate the opening of our flagship store at Kala Ghoda, Fort, Mumbai. This place has a special meaning for our brand as it began its journey here over a decade ago.

The name Kala Ghoda means Black Horse, a reference to the presence of a black stone statue of King Edward VII (as the then Prince of Wales) mounted on a horse that was built by Jewish businessman and philanthropist Albert Abdullah David Sassoon. This statue was removed from the precinct in 1965 and subsequently placed inside the Byculla Zoo (Veermata Jijabai Bhosale Udyan). The memory of this iconic statue still lingers on even to this day and this area is called Kala Ghoda Artist: Archana Pereira

Rediscovering aluminium

Surprised? I am.

Anand Prakash is in metamorphosis; discovering newer materials and pushing boundaries in form and functionality. Manufacturing of aluminium was my family business. After staying blissfully ignorant for the last 15 years, I am rediscovering my love for the metal again, finding new meaning, newer connoisseurs and a newer me. Reinventing myself without letting go of the past. Launching soon at our new Kala Ghoda store in Mumbai.
