Urban Medley as a brand was ideated to bring handmade, sustainable products to the conscious consumers. Products that reflect centuries old artisanship making each piece exclusive and unique. Though the products are all handmade as per old world styles of weaving and printing they have been designed to blend perfectly with contemporary fashion. They are minimalistic all season and timeless. The brand works with artisans from various parts of India, helping to empower them and in the process promote sustainable slow fashion. Presently the brand is working with peace silk, whereupon the silkworm is not killed within the cocoon but you wait for the silkworm to morph into a moth, discard the cocoon and then from the discarded cocoon the silk yarn is woven. We work with kala organic cotton, an indigenous variety of organic cotton which is completely rain fed and no chemical pesticide is used on the crop. The founder of the brand Shayonti Chatterji, is passionate about preserving and promoting the traditional arts and sharing the stories behind each scarf. The brand believes in-It’s important we buy better to be able to buy less. For each order placed on the website a tree is planted to make a small difference to our environment.
Our Silk scarves are handmade. the fabric is woven in handlooms, after the warn is spun out of discarded cocoons by hand, and then each scarf is hand block printed.
