Digging into the ar(t)chives of its rich art and design history, Art-chives celebrates India’s artisanal luxury and handcrafted savoir-faire over a creative collision of fashion, home and accessories.

India’s magic, madness and magnificence lies in its eternal arts and stories. Legions of legends. From these archives of abiding beauty is born our contemporary brand laced with nostalgia and humour. Unveiling the gossamer curtain of India’s storytelling traditions, steeped in magical realism, Art-chives launched in 2021 in Mumbai.

We capture fabled memories – from spotting monkeys on mango trees on our India Tote to celebrating the wild Indian garden on crisp table linen and discovering India’s haunting fragrances in our artisanal candles to romancing Kashmir’s poetry and precision on cashmere. Bringing alive vignettes of a day in the life of India. Letting you inhale a culture of splendour. Playful yet chic. Contemporary with a patina.

Intimate details create evocative and serendipitous moments. Like a sherbet in the middle of a desert. A vibe created by master craftsmen and new contemporary creators alike, for the sophisticated gypset.
