“If the rose at noon has lost the beauty it had at dawn, the beauty it had then was real.
Nothing in the world is permanent,and we’re foolish when we ask for anything to last.
But surelywe’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while wehave it.”
(From “The Razor’s Edge” by W. Somerset Maugham)

Since several seasons I take most of the pictures of our collections on the upper terrace which is on the top of our office in Varanasi (Benaras) in front of this amazing wall which keeps traces of each monsoon and which is magnified by a natural light.
Those fashion photographies are not as simple as they pretend to be, each is dwelling with a real social work.
Among the many people involved there, Anand who is modeling for our catalogue since the begining of the company is escaping for a while his tough condition of boatman on the Ganges and, using his dark colour skin complexion breaks a social taboo in India.
The fabric of this tablecloth is in pure linen, it involves handloom weavers of Varanasi struggling with their workshops and the embroidery inspired by the Mughal style is done in our workshop.

RED HALO is a collection of household linen based in Benaras (Varanasi – India) providing work to people who were living with difficulties and education to children.
(Copying those products is against this social work)
