Les Indiennes was launched by Mary Mulcahy in 2002. She had a vivid picture in mind of airy patterns of big, single colored motifs. But unable to locate such patterns anywhere she decided to create her own. She found a craftsman named Srinivas in a tiny village in southern India. He is one of very few craftsman who still practice the ancient art of kalamkari- the complex printing method used to produce Les Indiennes fabrics and wallpaper designs. Les Indiennes provides fair trade employment for numerous families, raising the standard of living for the entire community, and all the while leaving no environmental or social footprint.
