    TECHNIQUES & INSPIRATION

    Our cashmere comes from the place where it first originated – the mountainous region of the Himalayas. We call it Himalayan Cashmere because it is quite unique. These pleated pants, for instance, are incredibly soft and warm, yet light enough to layer.

The Taj Collection

The Taj Mahal is indisputably amongst man’s most beautiful creations. Built in the 17th century by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, in memory of his beloved wife, the Empress Mumtaz Mahal, more than 20,000 master craftsmen laboured for over a decade to complete it. From graceful floral motifs to intricate tessellations, Varana’s 2017 collection is inspired by the subtle, timeless beauty of the Taj.
