Leah Singh features a collection of handcrafted textiles that mix traditional Indian craft techniques with unexpected color combinations, and modern, geometric forms. Designer and founder Leah Singh works directly with artisans in villages across India using embroidery, weaving, and printing techniques that are native to the region. Her philosophy is to rejuvenate these age-old, traditional crafts by transforming them into modern objects.
