Essenza – Spring /Summer 2016 By Designer Rinku Sobti

Designer Rinku Sobti brings in her SS16 collection – “Essenza” – inspired by fruits and handlooms of Varanasi. Dauntless yet elegant, this collection is for every woman who loves to embrace their feminine side with confidence.

Rinku Sobti feels handloom is threatened by the burgeoning prominence of the power loom, as the populace gravitates towards mechanically stitched clothing.

Consequently, more weavers abandon their “forlorn” art. So, to revive this traditional art, she along with the weavers of the Barjardiya cluster of Varanasi has launched the new collection “Essenza.”

Rinku Sobti says, “Despite their tribulation, the destitute artists never fail to amaze me with the exotic creations of their nimble fingers.

It is the very unnatural duality – the birth of elegance in impoverished hands – that ignites my ambition to revive the handloom.

No matter what the external circumstances are for our weavers, they are the ones who have the talent, learning and passion for art. This collection is dedicated to them. They are the ones who should eventually reap the fruit of labour.”
