One of the best things about winters,  other than  snuggling in the bed and watching our favourite movies or going out with friends , is the chance to flaunt some pieces of  fine clothing. For somebody like me,  who has this natural inclination towards natural fabrics and handmade products , I can say that I have got my hands on something very tasteful.

CHIRITA by Anuja. K consists of the exquisite artistry of nature, in the form of beautifully designed and handcrafted apparels, accessories and outer wear garments. 
An organic designer wear brand , the name is derived from an ancient Sanskrit name of the flower which blooms from the ‘Giant Nettle Plant.’ Much like the blossoming  of a beautiful flower , CHIRITA helps to bloom the livelihood of women weavers of Uttrakhand in their  own humble way.

Fabric and the Weave 

The raw material used is the Himalayan Nettle Plant which in simple terms is a tall and erect herb found in the Himalayan range .  The plant grows in  clumps and every clump has many stems which contains  fiber of unique quality , one that is durable , smooth and light.

CHIRITA’S collections  are not just inspired by current trends, in fact there is a timeless quality when it comes to the fabric and the designs  and it is this that makes it all the more appealing .
Each piece is hand crafted from raw Fibres to finished product, by the women weavers of the hills .
The process of extraction of the yarn to the final product takes about a month and as a result each piece tends to be not just limited but also exclusive .
