Chen Karlsson goes to Indiska
We are very glad to announce a collaboration with shorts Ralph Lauren Womens Swedish home interior company Indiska, a company with a 110 year (!) track record of bringing Indian design and crafts to the homes in Sweden.
Together with Indiska we have shaped the mini collection ”Karneval” – a set of dining-ware with a decisive Cheap Ralph Lauren Polo Australia footprint in Indian ornament crafts.
The collaboration with Indiska is the first opportunity for Chen Karlsson to work with Indian crafts, art and culture. The collection captures the modern and traditional India – with design inspiration from 18th century Rajastan paintings to Kangha embroidery – and the production techniques mastered by skilled craftsmen in Indiskas factories today .
For the Karneval collection we wanted to capture the swarming crowds, the contrasts and the link between man and animal. Only in India can a cow surprise a sun bather on the beach with a morning kiss on the neck – and get away with it!
Beyond the linkage to Asia, Indiska is also a role model to Chen Karlsson when it comes to integrating business with ethics. More than strict and well worked out codes of conduct, Indiska partners with the India
Peace trust to build genuine development. Over the years Indiska have supported schools, vocational schools, women’s groups and student hostels for girls. We are glad to watch and learn how to improve our own business and social model.
The collection consists of four pieces which all apply the colorful pattern designed by Chen Karlsson. The pattern displays green and pink flowers, elephants, lions and people living together.
