Pallavi Shantam, an NIFT graduate, was into a host of things related to designing and visual merchandising until 2016 when she felt an urge to start a new chapter. The new chapter is: Buna Studio. And it began with a journey to the Indian countryside.
More About Buna
A fashion graduate from NIFT, Pallavi was always inspired by Indian crafts and textiles. After meeting the artisan communities in 2016, she decided to start her own fashion label. Buna translates to ‘woven’ in Hindi, and that is how collections are made here – 100 percent handmade. The brand works with weavers and artisans from Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bengal and Assam. It uses hand woven textile, natural materials and artisanal techniques to create authentic clothing. Some of the crafts that Buna is famous for are crochet, macramé and block prints. Most of the collections are feminine in style and minimalistic in nature.
Buna’s clothing collections also focus on sustainability and ensure minimal waste through better production methods. From handwoven cotton and jamdani to khadi, Buna uses high-quality and eco-friendly fabrics that leave zero carbon footprints.
Buna has a quaint studio in Delhi where it showcases collections of dresses, tops, pants, skirts, stoles, scarves, jackets, coordinated sets and sarees. They also have an e-shop on their website and ship products in other countries as well.
