Throw Pillows in Sherbet Shades

Issue 13 · Rite of Spring · March 28, 2012

Leah Singh claims two equally vibrant cities in far-flung corners of the world as home; designing from both New York and Delhi, her home accessories line mixes traditional Indian artistry with modern lines.

A graduate of the Parsons School of Design, Singh is inspired by the urban grid of New York. Her line of Mia Pillows combines vibrant machine-embroidered shapes with the delicate tracery of hand-stitching, traditional kantha embroidery done by women artisans of West Bengal. Working with artisans throughout India directly, Singh hopes to "rejuvenate the age-old traditional crafts by finding new applications as well as combinations of colors, materials, and patterns that are not typically used." To purchase, consult the company's list of retailers.
