Chintz Indienne

Chintz owed its creative origins to the long forgotten Indian artisans who first learned to spin, weave, dye and paint, the fabric that travelled by sea and caravan to Europe and that eventually found its way into the cushioned parlours of English ladies. The word's origin tells a story: "chintz" comes from the sanskrit word chint, meaning variegated or multicoloured.

Francois Bernier, a French physician and traveller mentions that the Masulipatam chintz used to line the walls of the Imperial Durbar Hall, and as screens, were so beautiful that painted flowers looked like natural, as if the spectators were gazing at a parterre in a garden. The chintzes from these parts, by their delectable designs and ravishing beauty, enchanted fashionable customers in every country.

The French government, pressured by linen and silk manufacturers banned imported cotton of all kind in 1686. England followed in 1700. When the ban was lifted after almost 50 years, heavy duties on import had taken the play away from chintz.

Our romantic and flamboyant collection of 'Chintz Indienne' is an ode to the phenomenal and revolutionary 17th century printed and painted calico from India. The collections celebrates and revives the beautiful motifs of flowers and fruits.
