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.

Pink and Orange: perfect Indian colors

Pink and Orange are quintessential Indian colors in my opinion.

Pink represents romance, love, fidelity, friendship and honor. Orange represents fire, lust, vigor, excitement, adventure and attraction. A typical Bollywood movie isn't it? Also the perfect color for spring... the season for L O V E. In this lovely handmade silk scarf, a pink monochromatic color scheme is accentuated with a red-orange contrast border.

The perfect colors to pair with this scarf? For a more subtle look, choose a hue from this analogous color scheme.

For a little oomph, pair the scarf with a hue from this triadic color scheme.
