Cotton on to Raj Tent Club’s new Injiri collection of cushions, throws and bedspreads. Designed by one of India’s leading fashion and home brands, the Injiri collection is hand-crafted in Rajasthan and draws inspiration from traditional textile techniques and folk clothing from all over the continent.
Available in blue and cream and black and cream colourways, yarn-dyed hand-loomed organic cotton is decorated with intricately hand-stitched geometric designs, with juxtaposed fabrics including madras checks, plains and stripes and the whimsically placed hand-knotted tassels bringing a modern, quirky and witty edge to the otherwise simple styling.
An homage to India’s artisanal expertise, the collection is produced by karigars (craftspeople) from different parts of India, including rangrez (dyers), bunkars (weavers), darazis (tailors) and dastakars (finishing craftspeople).
Authentic and unique, Raj Tent Club’s origins lie in Jodhpur, northern India. Inspired by photos of historical Rajasthani tents, Raj Tent Club’s founders suggested to the Maharaja that they resurrect the lost art of tent making in order to continue the tradition of tented camps created by his forbears. Their first commission was to locally manufacture eighty Shikar tents for the camel fair at Pushkar, reviving artisanal skills and creating traditional employment for new generations.
Today, Raj Tent Club’s tents, canopies and pavilions appear at the country’s best and brightest parties as well as starring in films including Vanity Fair and Bride & Prejudice and are now available to purchase alongside a range of furniture, lighting and accessories inspired by nomadic traditions from around the world.
