Somewhere between keeping up with ever-changing trends and an obsession with the latest in fashion, local artisanal craft has faded into the background. This season, péro founded by Aneeth Arora, revives this practice by making it the theme of its Fall/Winter’19 collection.

Inspired by the colourful outfits worn by people in Himachal Pradesh, péro’s latest pieces feature exquisite geometric patterns, rich textiles and beautiful fabrics. For this particular collection, the label uses Australian Merino wool along with the traditional Himachali pattu to create an unusual yet exciting combination.

To bring its vision to life, péro partners with the local weavers of Bhuttico, (in the Kullu region of Himachal Pradesh) known for their impeccable hand-weaving skills and eye for colour combination.

Various other textile practices such as the decadent stripes from West Bengal, robust mashru stripes from Gujarat and luxurious mulberry silk from South India are also integrated with merino wool to bring back experimental style at its best. péro’s latest collection proves that it is possible to support traditional craft (with a modern twist) and look stylishly unique at the same time.
