A very happy and prosperous Diwali everybody !!!!!
This feature celebrates old regal art of real silver and gold embroidery on brocades, silks, chiffons and cottons with Rajkunwar Mayankraj Singh of Kayasthpada, who revives it with Shikaarbagh. He tastefully recreates the preciousness of “Succha Kaam” providing a nostalgic feel of the bygone era with custom made must-haves for drawing rooms, boudoirs and wardrobes. Their classic attire is an heirloom piece which will surely be passed down generations maintaining it’s exquisiteness through time.
Mayank is mastering this art with a PHD in “The evolution of Rajput Costumes” and has assisted Princess Rajyashree Kumari of Bikaner with a coffee-table book regarding the costumes of Bikaner.
Living in Kota, Rajasthan, he is also actively involved with the “Kota Doria Weavers Foundation” which was created to preserve their work and provide a better life for the doria weavers.
