Aratrik Dev Varman – Tripura

Biography

Tilla

Aratrik Dev Varman, a textile and fashion designer from the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad who originally hails from Tripura. He delved deep into the world of fashion at Des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. Handwoven materials such as Khadi, Jamdani and Kanjeevaram dominate his fashion voice and the unevenness of texture, instead of mill-made textiles, lends them life. It is environmentally sustainable, keeps communities’ connected, traditional wisdom alive, and allows him to customise each piece. With a team of 22 at present, Tilla sells internationally as well. He changes motifs and colours each season, but essentially, the line remains the same. In 2011, Aratrik founded TILLA, a design studio that is based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The focus of the brand has been women's clothing and home textiles, which draw from the core values of the crafts used in the collection- handmade, local and sustainable.
