Rashmi Singh, A Post Graduate in Design from the prestigious National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad, has over 10 years of industry experience, in multiple creative streams with popular fashion brands and her own private label. Rashmi primarily works with two of the oldest art forms, Tholu Bommalata (Leather Puppetry) from Andhra Pradesh and Madhubani Painting from Bihar.
To sustain something that has lost its relevance we need to add perspective, redefine and recreate into a product that gives a sense of history and a piece of future, making it truly timeless. Rashmi works with artisans in the interior villages of Andhra Pradesh to develop a range of contemporary products using Tholu bommalata. She has developed unique bespoke products that are the perfect blend of heritage and contemporary.
