Episode 9: Seema Krish (48): textile designer / founder of Seema Krish Textiles

So happy I got a chance to ask textile designer and entrepreneur Seema Krish all the questions I had always wanted to since we met more than a decade ago in Boston. Seema joins me from her studio in San Francisco and shares her journey from art-loving Bombay kid to establishing her own luxury textiles brand for interiors Seema Krish Textiles.

Listen to the episode below or on iTunes here, and don't miss the Shownotes for all the books and other favorites we discussed!

Books and other cool stuff we discussed on Episode 9:

  1. Japanese art textiles at NUNO

  2. Satya Paul who was an innovative sari designer who launched contemporary, printed saris in the 1980s

  3. Tharangini Studios in Bangalore, who print Seema’s fabrics

  4. The iconic Nalanda bookstore in the Taj, now open as part of the CMYK group, and this wonderful tribute to the sad closing after 70 years, of another iconic Bombay The Strand Bookstore earlier this year. BOOK LOVERS - it’s a must watch and a powerful reminder of the serendipitous discoveries we miss out on when we search for specific titles on amazon.

  5. Brigitte Singh: Printress of the Mughal Garden

  6. Peter Korn’s Why We Make Things and Why It Matters: The Education of a Craftsman

  7. A related book by Alexander Langlands: Cræft: An Inquiry Into the Origins and True Meaning of Traditional Crafts
