Olivia Dar

 

Olivia Dar a world traveller with a Parisian soul. Her love for Indian craft and artisanal traditions started when she took up a gemology course in Jaipur, India.  She then settled in India and started her career designing embroideries and accessories for haute couture labels like Christian Lacroix. She then decided to start her own label of hand embroidered jewellery, clothing and accessories that combined traditional craftsmanship and modern aesthetics. 

Her atelier is located New Delhi, India. They provide a safe and comfortable workspace for their artisans to practice their craft, and every Olivia Dar piece is finely and carefully crafted in their studio. The embroidery is done by the male artisans and the finishing by the female artisans. As a woman-owned and run company, they are focused in creating a safe and supportive work environment for their female employees. They are committed to sustainability and source materials locally, recycle fabrics and upcycle vintage embroidered clothing sourced from Central Asia.
