About Pink City Fashion

Pink City Fashion brings you the original heritage collection of handicrafts and clothing items, which are intrinsically-designed in the Pink City, another name for the city of Jaipur in India. From handbags to hand block printed dresses to traditional souvenirs, the popular hand block printing from Pink City adds uniqueness to your lifestyle. Pink City is home to the popular textile printing industries that employ many villagers and help them feed their families. Founded by Kalpana, Pink City Fashion deals with textile as well as other handicraft items from India.

Due to the current trend of synthetic cloths, the traditional craftsmen (primarily Chippas communities) are giving up this intensive printing process. Pink City Fashion is promoting their talent by taking this hand block printed collection to a broader community. We intend to raise awareness on the art, give the artisans much-deserved respect, and help them grow.

About Director/Founder Kalpana

Born and brought up in Jaipur, Kalpana directly purchases products from artisans in Bagru and Sanganer, the prominent villages near Jaipur where traditional hand block printing is still alive. These craftsmen and women pass on this artistry from one generation to another.

With a Master’s in Publishing, Kalpana lives in Cambridge where she organises Indian food stalls in her son’s school, which are a complete hit with people who love to eat homecooked Indian meals. She opened the doors to artisans from the Pink City after noticing how much people love handmade items.

Kalpana’s previous experience with authors at Cambridge University Press led to the thought that artisans should be offered lifelong royalties for their hand block printed designs and patterns just like authors are rewarded because not only for the beauty they impart through their skills but also because they are the real ambassadors protecting the Indian heritage for future generations.

Mother India’s Crochet Queens (micq.co.in)

Pink City Fashion is also working with MICQ (Mother India’s Crochet Queens) public charitable trust;s ambassador Anshu Malini and sharing her talent of creative art. She has achieved Guinness Book of World Records for three consecutive years in crochet sculptures work.

In her own words, “Crochet is ideal for times of stress and anxiety as art helps us to focus on what we are doing rather than what might be happening”.

Usually, crochet dining table placemats take 1-2 weeks to make, whereas woollen socks take 1 week to complete.

Furthermore, Pink City Fashion is also sharing their vision by making more people aware of the art of crochet and coach the habit into younger minds, which we believe a better future.
