Almirah (Anglo-Indian for cupboard) is a place for special things to be stored away: a world of colours, smells and textures. Started by a mother daughter team, Almirah makes clothes, bedding and accessories for children from 0-12yrs.
Almirah aims to be culturally connected. We believe in contemporary design with an Indian edge. We use cosmopolitan silhouettes, yet retain the traditional garments worn by Indians for centuries such as the loose lukhnawi kurta which cools you in summer, the sardri worn to keep your chest warm or the lovely odhnis or scarves. Our speciality lies in embroidered cottons, soft printed mulmuls and organic hoisery.
Divya used her experience of over 25 years with garments and export along with her passion for patchwork and recycling, to launch our first line in 2011. Aditi, her daughter, loves to design and the prints as well as embroideries on our fabrics are hand drawn by her. Recently returned from New York after pursuing a program at Parsons, her inspiration continues to come from the colorful fabrics and streets of India.
The Almirah family consists of craftsmen, tailors and most importantly, our neighbourhood bachhaas who keep inspiring us. Together, they help keep Almirah quirky and simple which is reflected in our prints, embroideries and style.
Today, we make clothes, bedding and accessories for children and are steadily expanding our product line for the almirahs of young and old alike. Proud of the handmade charm of our products, even after four years, our masterji makes all the samples on his pedal machine.
Almirah stores are in Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai. Our products are also available in select boutiques in the US.
