the bai lou studio was formed in March 2002. It is based amidst the winding alleyways of Kolkata, where colourful rickshaws and cloth draped fruit and vegetable sellers inspire our collections and our passion for handmade things.

handmade, handwoven textiles such as scarves and wraps are some of the products that bai lou creates, combining contemporary design with existing skills and traditions. Experimenting with the vast quantity of raw materials sourced from around the Indian subcontinent, bai lou transforms ideas into reality.

In an environment where nothing is thrown away, bai lou recycles, reinvents and rethinks the whole approach to design.

working side by side with our weavers has helped us to fully understand the complexities of the weaving process. bai lou products aim to convey the subtle beauty of woven structures and the endless possibilities of the loom finished textile.
