Tara (Ivory)


A love letter to our beloved Indian Tusker. And the story of friendship between Mark Shand and Tara. Mark’s dear darling girl. Tara. Art-chives pays tribute to the story of Mark Shand, the legendary conservationist and his beloved Elephant, Tara. A hallmark of true friendship.

Hand-embroidered in the artisanal traditions of India, in sequin, kasab and aari, Tara tunes in a pop of glamour on cotton canvas with stunning contrast handles. Whispering, ‘I dream in India’. A timeless classic. 

Available in hues of ivory, yellow and red, this Art-chives special is for the most memorable journeys of life.
