Ahilya

Ahilya

 

Born of two passions and two startlingly diverse cultures, ahilya is inspired by the woven jewels of Kashmir and the dynamism of London design. In 2008 Manuela Moollan set out to create a product which would fuse ancient artisan tradition with contemporary technical brilliance, integrating the craft of the world’s finest cashmere weavers with a fresh, bold London aesthetic.

This philosophy provided the foundation onto which to build ahilya’s passions, with the introduction of its main line in 2011. Drawing on ahilya’s expertise in natural animal fibres and in reverence of weaving traditions, the main line expands on the weaving techniques used with extra fine animal fibres such as Merino and Geelong wool sourced from New Zealand and Australia as well as natural fibres such as Cotton sourced from Ethiopia.

“Our story is a narrative between London, Kashmir and the rest of the World.”
