While researching for the next On Demand! post [yup, another one coming up soon! something to do with babies and kids...], I came across this crazy eclectic collection from Koko. Lots of inspiration from India - in design, colors, textures and fabric techniques.

Another section of Koko's collection will be part of my next On Demand! post. Keep Reading!

Hey Bhavana,

I think you should not be posting these images from Koko and indirectly help promote their products. not only are they irreverent to Indian culture, unaccepting careful of religious Indian sentiments..(Use Indian dieties with much abandon ) but they also do not give indian artisans their due

Hello Anon! Well, I agree with you partly. I do think it would nice if Koko acknowledged the artisans/geo area from where they are sourcing/designing their products. It would definitely help giving Indian fabric craft a boost.

In terms of using Indian dieties...well, this is what Indian kitsch is all about! I agree that care should be taken so as to not disrespect or hurt any one's religious sentiments. And if this is taken care of, then I think such kitsch actually helps a global audience become aware of Indian iconography [the way east has become aware of the western icons and street art]

Thanks for dropping by and hope to hear from you again :)
