Navyāti is an attempt to capture relatively overlooked aspects of ancient Sri Lankan art, culture and folk heritage, while integrating these elements with contemporary textile design. Motifs, imagery and forms from ancient Sri Lanka are juxtaposed with modern design through silhouettes, print and colour. The brand aims to bridge the gap between ancient and modern design while hoping to be both accessible and intriguing for contemporary customers with its unique textile development, involving hand painted motifs transferred onto digital prints and layered with touches of various western embroidery techniques.
