A brainchild of Priyamvada Golcha and Simon Marks, Khanoom is an artistic curation of pottery and tableware that fuses together traditional techniques with a blend of East and West sensibilities for contemporary living. The brand is rooted in storytelling and draws inspiration from motifs of nature.

The hand-made and hand-painted botanical plates use rich, joyous motifs and luminescent colours that are scented with the romance of meals amidst lush, fruiting gardens. Steeped in 16th to 18th-century vintage botanical drama, the collection conjures fantastical scenes which seem to be plucked from the pages of a book. The entire dinnerware is brought to life by the bright palette and richly textured paintings.

“We are honoured to come to Delhi for our first ever pop-up at Sarita Handa. Their contemporary designs and traditional techniques used by the artists with whom they collaborate for their textiles and embroideries resonated with our own aesthetics of hand-painted ceramics made by the traditional techniques of the kumhars and laghu chitrans (potters) of Rajasthan and Jaipur, interpreted for a present-day audience,” says Priyamvada Golcha and Simon Marks, Founders of Khanoom.

“We admire the design language of Khanoom and the ecosystem they have created that ensures financial sustenance for local artisans. Their efforts to generate interest in the younger generations of potters’ families to continue this craft as a viable way of living is noteworthy. They are not just selling craft but actively participating in preserving our heritage. This pop-up is thus a celebration of our artisans and crafts,” says Suparna Handa, Managing Director, Sarita Handa.
