Desi Firangan is designed and made by a "firangan" (foreign) girl named Michelle and "desi" (Indian-local) widows who thanks to their great talent gain confidence and financial stability. They turn into entrepreneurs who reinvent the traditional indigo block printing technique
I came to India four years ago and was fascinated by the block printing technique, the deep colors and the amazing, talented women. I really wanted to find a way how to work with the local talent and create something that would go multiple ways. Together we are modern, relevant with sense for traditions. I and my local partner Raj Kaur are the essence to what we call Desi Firangan (Local Foreigner). We empower and bring change to local widows showing them new perspectives to their talent.
