Layaa is derived from the Hindi word 'Laya' which means tempo , mostly used in classical music, also a source of inspiration to my process, especially during the design & research phase. There is a sense of harmony, rhythm and restfulness in this act of creation which breathes life into our textiles. It's a wholistic cycle that combines imagination , materials & techniques which needs to be sustained & celebrated for making things that matter.
