Our new capsule collection—the Soneva Edit—is inspired by the islands’ lush greens, glistening sun-soaked sands, and alluring blue waters

Pero Fall-Winter 2019

Good Earth
presents
Péro x The Woolmark Company

Fall/Winter 2019
Good Earth Khan Market, New Delhi

For their Fall ’19 collection, Péro joined hands with The Woolmark Company and the master weavers of Kullu in Himachal Pradesh as part of Woolmark’s ‘Grown in Australia, Made in India’ initiative. They wove fine Australian Merino wool into bold patterns, highlighted with motifs in bright colours reminiscent of Kullu’s traditional shawls. Péro then reinterpreted these fabrics into contemporary silhouettes—jackets, tops, trousers, dresses—ideal for layering in the north Indian winters.

Wool not only formed the base of the collection, but was also used in innovative ways to embellish various styles. Oversized floral appliqué and couching, highlighted with delicate beadwork and hand embroideries, give this collection a playful twist that’s signature Péro.

These timeless traditions are at the heart of our work at Good Earth. For 23 years and counting, we have worked closely with craftspeople and communities who, generation after generation, safeguard this infinite cultural patrimony. As we celebrate our 73rd Independence Day, we bring you the crafts that have inspired us and given us some of our best loved products.

DESIGN COLLECTION 2018-19
Design Collections

As we close the chapter of our design collection for 2018-19, here’s looking back at the myth, memories, and legacy of the ancient land of Gandhara.

We only know what we’ve lost because
of what is left behind.

Each year we create a design collection that tells the story of a particular culture or mythical aspect of a region in the Indian subcontinent and surrounding areas across Asia. For the year 2018-19, we embarked on a design journey to unfold the legends of Gandhara along the famed Silk Route.

An ancient kingdom that existed during the time of the Rig Vedas, Gandhara, was located at the confluence of rivers Swat and Kabul, both tributaries of the mighty Sindhu. The first true global civilisation, exemplifying a fluid melding of Indic, Persian, Greek and Central Asian cultures with a predominantly Buddhist influence, it was a cradle of art and design, and a hub of knowledge and learning.

As we proceed towards this year’s annual theme, we bring the Gandhara chapter to a close with the launch of our design journal. Insightful and visually rich, it records our inspiration and research behind the Gandhara Design Collection: a re-imagining of the rich history through the Good Earth lens.

Ancient Inspirations: Designs and Details

THE ARTIST'S BRUSH

The trumpeting elephant motif was borrowed from the coins issued by the ruling Satraps of that time.

The Bactrian Horse motif was inspired by the mythical flying stallions of Bakhtar, as ancient Bactria was known.

Dining like Royalty

The Taxila dinnerware collection was named after the city of Takshashila, where one of the world’s oldest universities was situated. It was also an important centre of commerce, and its residents lived in ease, amongst the prosperity that trade and exchange ensured in the region.

The Potter’s Wheel

Gandharan terracotta represented a stylistic simplicity of form and material. With practical, functional shapes to assist everyday use—such as storing food and grain or drinking and pouring water—each vessel celebrated distinctive curves, balance, and subtle refinement. Drawing from the pottery and utensils excavated at Gandhara, we created a range of handcrafted Greek amphorae, pots, and jars, along with metal and glass ones.

The Weaver’s Loom

Gandharan textiles reflected a diverse amalgam of culture, design influences, and style. From the beguiling geometric patterns of Ajrakh to the twinkling Banjaran mirrorwork of nomadic tribes, our collections captured the spirit of this cosmopolitan civilisation with rich textures and traditional craft techniques, narrating tales of a forgotten world.

Pichwai: The Dance of Krishna

Pichwai: The Dance of Krishna

Ornate, handpainted temple hangings that bring alive the legends of the deity 

 

The word Pichwai has its roots in the Sanskrit pich (behind) and wai (hanging). A traditional art form that emerged in the 17th Century at the Nathdwara temple in Rajasthan, Pichwais are intricate paintings dedicated to Shrinathji and are typically hung behind the idol of the deity in local shrines. These elaborately handpainted artworks celebrate the different moods and expressions of Krishna, and mostly depict temple rituals like the adornment (shringaar) of Shrinathji according to the seasons or festivals in the Pushtimarg calendar: Janamashtami and Gopashtami, for example. A popular depiction of Krishna found in Pichwais is the Chappan Bhog (a feast of 56 delicacies) rendition as an offering to the deity. Elements of the Indian monsoon like the peacock, the lotus, and even his beloved cows are featured prominently and repeatedly. 

 

Over time, Pichwai painting came to be practiced in various local styles. The most recognisable among these are the Nathdwara style known for its expressive portraitures, the Deccan or Hyderabadi defined by a liberal use of gold and silver leaf, the dynamic and fluid Kota-Bundi style, and the Kishangarh style inspired by Mughal miniatures. 

 

As an endeavour to preserve and revive this sacred art form, we present contemporary renditions of traditional Pichwai paintings in collaboration with The House Of Things, curated exclusively on our web boutique for a limited time.

One God, Many Avatars

From dancing to eating, cow-herding to flute-playing, Pichwais depict the many moods of Lord Krishna

Shrinathji Morkutir Pichwai: An ode to the Monsoon, this colourful Pichwai features Shrinathji playing his bansuri (flute), surrounded by dancing peacocks and his beloved cows.

Shrinathji Duhera Manorath: Painted in the Mughal miniature style, this intricate Pichwai depicts the ritual dressing (shringaar) of Shrinathji before a Chappan Bhog ceremony.

Shri Gokulchandramaji Gopashtami: Symbolising Lord Krishna as the Gokulchandrama (the moon of Gokul), this Deccan-style Pichwai features the deity in a Tribhanga (three-body-bends) posture.

Gopiyo Ki Pichwai: Rendered on a dark background with gold leaf detailing, this exquisite Pichwai depicts four Gopis in adulation of Shrinathji.

Moods Of The Monsoon

“Monsoon, spring of India, saviour from the torment of summer.
You brought tidings of the month of Tir, once again we escaped the heat”

Mas’ud Sa’d Salman (d. 1121), Persian poet
