ISSUE I : [ CELEBRATING INDIA ] HINDOSTAN ARCHIVE
We have been living in an idea, an idea from another man’s mind. We are interested in capturing the craftsmanship & heritage of South Asia, for creating an archive that would outlast ecological changes. Working with artisans across India and paying attention to intricate details, that’s how a Hindostan design is brought to life. Research & referencing is key to our process, the only way to be original is to know our past.
