Earlier we covered Bandit Queen as the store, today I am going to feature the beautiful things they sell.
The Bandit Queen home textile collection was born in India following the meeting of Sunita Namjoshi, entrepreneur and founder of the company Synergy Lifestyles, and Valerie Barkowski, art director and designer. It is a brand without boundaries which pairs the fine skills of Indian heritage with timeless international design.
The collection includes three main areas: bed linen, bath linen and table linen.
Across the collection there is a coherency of style and as the collection grows, new designs will compliment the existing. The fabrics, developed over two years, have been customized to the collection and include a lightweight Swiss voile, a silky twill woven with mercerized combed yarn, and smooth linen.
In the bed linen range there are some designs that are so finely pleated that it takes 40 days to make a bedcover. There are hand made flowers that button onto pillowcases and duvet covers, fresh prints which layer together on the same bed and even designs which glow in the dark. There is also an X-ray print of what they imagine Bandit Queen lingerie to be. The X-Rayed pillow covers are priced between Rs 2,900 – 3,100. The duvet with the changeable panel are at Rs 15,500.
