About

I have been designing since I was a child growing up in Auroville. I opened my Rangoli Atelier here in 1999. Since then I have been fortunate to have thousands of clients from all over the world. I am grateful to all of you for supporting my passion.

From early on, I have been drawn to the diaphanous, textured handloom fabrics of the Jamdani tradition. They allow me to express myself with color, texture, transparency and layering. Although I use various textiles in my designs, Tangail and Jamdani remain my signature fabrics.

For over 10 years, I have been traveling to Bengal to collaborate with the artisanal Tangail communities outside Kolkata. I commission custom fabrics directly from the weavers. These textiles, designed at my Atelier, require the most technically demanding weaves, the finest yarns, in the most refined colors. This challenges the weavers to produce their most beautiful work, all at fair trade prices. I believe this is the most sustainable way to keep their tradition alive.

You can see my work with Tangail in my line of one-of-a-kind ArtWear pieces, as well as in the styles that use our in-house designed, custom-woven fabrics. Scarves are a natural fit for custom weaves, and I have been designing my own for many years.

My love of movement and dance is reflected in a line of yoga / dance / leisure wear that is made from the finest modal jersey. I also have a line of every day wear for which I have used a variety of textiles from viscose to voile.

I have been designing children’s garments for over 15 years, and I have a limited but distinctive range of Men’s garments, including a Necktie.

Frequently asked questions
Are the colors in the photographs accurate?

We do our best to ensure color fidelity. Our products are photographed in natural light, all image production work is done on color-calibrated devices: they are edited on Macs, and tested for color on iPhones and iPads

As you may know, there is wide variation in the display of colors on different screens, so we cannot guarantee that the colors in the image you see will be exactly the same as the colors on the item you receive.

However, if you are somewhat flexible about the exact shade, we are sure you will be pleased with any purchase from our shop. The harmonious use of color is one of the defining characteristics of Prema's designs.

Sizing details

Please be aware that our garment sizes may not correspond directly to European or American sizes.

For each item we provide a sizing chart that specifies the measurements of important dimensions.

Please check on our chart to make sure the sizing is correct before placing your order.
