Rise and shine with the soft yellow of Sunbeam. Inside this warm Chromatics pastel, you’ll find our coordinating Dotted Diamond lining created by indigenous artist Ramesh Katara and then represented by Roots Studio. Inspired by kernels of maize - the Bhil’s staple crop, each “pointillist” dot joins another in wavelike ripples from one diamond to the next. Various shades of muted yellows and greens are skillfully painted into a symphony of multihued and rhythmic dots symbolizing stories, prayers, ancestors, memories, and traditions. Adorned with satin gold hardware, this print echoes indigenous brilliance from generations past to present.
