Fabrics & Linens: Raksha Bella in Berkeley

Lydia Lee September 23, 2011

Carrie Peters of Berkeley-based Raksha Bella was a decorative painter in a former life; after a trip to India, she shifted her aesthetic focus to fabrics. Peters commissions underprivileged women in Jaipur, India, to create hand-block prints on 100 percent certified-organic cotton sateen. The company's name is also its creed; Raksha means protection in Sanskrit, and Bella is Latin for beautiful. "Raksha Bella's philosophy is to protect what is beautiful with our devotion to hand-made organic textiles," Peters says. To see the full line of offerings, go to Raksha Bella.
