South India evokes sunshine, palm trees and spices. Chettinad, a very special area in this region, is the inspiration for our Summer 2020 collection. Usha, Jamini founder, is a big fan of the Chettinad cuisine, and fell in love with the very special architecture of the region. Famous for the villas built by the wealthy trading & banking community, the Chettiars, this part of India has a tradition for making exquisite tiles called the Athangudi tiles. This summer, discover the colors of Chettinad - stunning ochre, beautiful pinks, classic blue and shades of sunny orange. Imagine yourself on an early morning walk in a quiet village waking up to sounds of children’s laughter & smells of aromatic spices wafting from the intricately decorated Chettiar homes.
