Kali Basi Designs: Woman’s apparel & accessories

Kali Basi Designs: Woman’s apparel & accessories

Kali was brought up in the richness of her indigenous East Indian culture. An artistic culture, where grandmothers passed on to mothers and through them to their daughters for generations, thousands of years of unique hand-crafted colors, symbols, patterns, natural fibers and fabrics. Stepped in this rich heritage, she later added an arts degree, and a number of years in the fashion industry. With this background of a solid grounding of contemporary western expressions and fashions and her traditional heritage in arts and crafts as a natural living expression, Kali has developed her own unique artistic signature.
