I received an email from Vinayak when he heard about my Jaipur trip from a common friend. Vinayak along with his partner Rameshwari founded Cotton Rack over a year ago . They both had worked with brands like Fab India, ColorPlus etc before they decided that they wanted to reinvent Khadi garments in a more modern way.
Vinayak is a lovely host and can talk for hours He enlightened me a bit about the state of Khadi in the country , the Pink City and the various designers and e-commerce portals and yes introduced me to a National award winner block printer in Sanganer .
Rameshwari is the quieter of the two , the pretty lady is mainly responsible for designing the brand’s outfits. I think she is not just extremely talented but also understands the pulse of the consumer really well and perfectly complements Vinayak .
What follows is some pictures I took in their Jaipur studio. All garments are made of 100% pure handspun Khadi.Cotton Rack has been selling through online stores as well as through five different stores across the country. They are still in their initial forming days and planning to add more products to the range. You can view their earlier collections on their Pinterest page (https://www.pinterest.com/
