The inspiration behind the nomad collection comes from every day scenes I witnessed and photographed in Tibet, silhouettes of people and their animals set against the vastness of the landscape.
Back in India I apply the theme to a range of products for everyday use, my signature for combining trend and tradition. For us, the Tibetan diaspora, the mundane and typical in Tibet set a tone of nostalgia and exoticism, evoking a lifestyle familiar through countless reminiscences uttered by the older generation. Applying these designs onto personal, everyday items is a way of reconnecting with our past.
The image of a yellow sun present in most of the graphics is meant as a reminder that our lives, wherever we are, are connected to nature exemplified by the daily rhythm around the rising and setting of the sun.
