The 'Khovar' collection celebrates an art that was traditionally for decorating the marriage chamber of the bride and groom. The Khovar art usually depicts the animals and plants of neighboring forests and valleys. The collection brings out the art in bold digital prints highlighted with delicate mirrorwork and threadwork. Talking about the collection, Sarabjeet Saluja, chief executive-founder, Saundh, said, 'Kalp Haat is dedicated to our rich artistic heritage retold as print stories in contemporary silhouettes.'
