At Anchal Project, one believes design can change lives. With backgrounds in landscape architecture and architecture, sisters Colleen and Maggie Clines lead the brand by placing design at the center of their everyday practice. Their work explores the synthesis of vernacular imagery, heritage artwork and a maker’s journey to empowerment.
Anchal's contemporary geometric designs are defined by sophisticated patchwork and aggregated stitch patterns, revolutionizing traditional Kantha quilting techniques in India.
Anchal's home goods and accessories are entirely hand-stitched by 130 artisan women in Ajmer, India, with the highest quality and attention to detail. All these artisans are empowered through design training, health benefits, education workshops and financial security, which has enabled them to support themselves and their families through safe and dignified employment.
