One of our recent collaborations has been connecting a luxury resort, Jilling Terraces with our maker, Margaret from Woven Threads. The resort based in Nainital required a customized 10-feet runner and mats for their grand handcrafted wooden dining table. They connected with Margaret from Woven Threads who created a beautiful multi stripe indigo runner from a weaver in Kohima. Jilling Terraces loved the piece and has now started another collaboration on Direct Create for table lamps.

“We are working with DirectCreate community members for our latest architecture hardware design innovation project- how to incorporate India's enormous artisanal talent and pair it with state of the art industrial processes - creating uniquely crafted products that can only be ‘Made in India’"

“Direct Create arranged us to participate in the Handmade in Rajasthan Fashion event last year, it was a great exposure for our weaver community to work side by side with the leading fashion designers and also do business with them.”

Cox and Kings connected through the platform with textile designer Sangeeta Sen and created beautiful hand woven table linen for their luxury camp.

"It has been a pleasure working with Direct Create and getting unique opportunities that bring out the best of my skill and knowledge and connecting with more and more diverse set of clients."

Another collaboration story comes from northern India. Direct create connected a restaurant based out of Jaipur with Hrishikesh, who is a lightning designer based out of Delhi. The exact requirement of the client was to design a series of new contemporary lights for the interiors of the restaurant.

“It was interesting to work through DC without moving from my studio”

Several customized products were designed and produced by the team of designers at Direct Create for the Jaipur Literature Festival organized by Teamwork Arts.
