Art Therapy...

My name is Kavita Gandhi and I created KavitaKriti (Creations by Kavita).

My speciality is Indian luxury hand painted silk scarves. Through KavitaKriti my hope is to create awe-inspiring silk scarves with an honest reflection of my Indian roots. Growing up I was surrounded by Indian textiles and embroideries and always marveled at the craftsmanship of what I saw. KavitaKriti is an avenue for me to pay homage to these wonderful art forms and represent them to you in my own way.

Copper, rust and chocolate make for a rich and regal combination in this hand painted silk scarf. The scarf works beautifully against muted beige or taupe but it definitely enhances a wardrobe in burgundy, mahogany or rust. A lime or olive green contrast may only work for a few but it is an interesting pairing nevertheless.
