Dahlia Dreams

Inspired by the quintessential romanticism of our favourite women characters Scarlett O’Hara from Gone with the Wind and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, our new collection – Dahlia Dreams – features woven florals, delicate stripes and flirty frills in soft earthy shades of clay and mud.

We love the great outdoors where nature still thrives and time tiptoes imperceptibly! Imagine an ancient pond with muddy waters, floating fuchsia flowers bathed in warm sunshine, the fragrance of wet clay and earth… Think a soft natural palette - mild shades of coral, faded tangerine, light wine…

We bring you the charm of the countryside yet again to inspire slow living. Walking amidst meadow paths of a prairie or a winding artery on a hill blanketed with thick undergrowth. The breeze flutters in the seams of your romantic maxi or a grapevine tugs at the hem of your lawn dress. That bubbling of joy and the inner giggle!

To bring this romance of Nature alive, we have used the finest Jamdani cotton with interwoven motifs of flowers, natural linens in faded rose and glowing pink silks. They are thoughtfully handcrafted into flowing maxis, delicate midi dresses and overlays.

Droplets flushed by warm light making tiny ripples in blue waters. The fragrance of acacias teasing your nostrils and a misty breeze drizzling over your closed eyelids. The melody of a distant refrain waving in your ears and taking your mind into a languid reverie. A restful space...

We evoke the timelessness of the nightfall and the quiet of the evening sun as it drifts a while. As autumn approaches, the weather cools down and the festivities ring in the air, we bring you feminine and charming dresses in azure blues and deep ecrus. We keep the palette soft and earthy, add versatility to the pieces, and give you more options to style them with pants, stoles and skirts.

For the woman who wants to celebrate the new season with laid back charm and partake in the festivities with subtle elegance… The woman who has seen life in all its glitter and beyond it! After all, it's about the life and the memories you make in your exquisite clothing.

This winter, we bring you feminine and charming maxi and midi dresses in azure blues and deep ecrus. Raindrops on the Nile uses high quality handwoven cotton silks and pure silks with subtle raindrop motifs, block prints and hand embellishments to give theses dresses a nostalgic aura.

The waters gush and dance, winds rustle in-between the silences, flowers bloom and wither, new leaves come, old ones wilt, fruits ripen, bees hum, butterflies flutter, earthworms dig, morning dew sparkles on bushes, distant mountains go pale and blue, the sun wakes up the day, nights sleep deeply under the stars. . .

Nature has no equal and we at Buna want to rekindle its unparalleled grace and charm in our lives. Little things work as reminders - the little creeper that spurts out on a cracked wall, the tiny weed flower that blooms in a neglected pot, the canary that sings from morning till evening without fail. Our clothes are an ode to nature’s poetry. The textiles are created where nature still rejoices in its raw beauty, life moves at an unhurried pace and simplicity epitomises the hearts of the village folk.

This collection uses India’s heritage textile, Jamdani to fashion easy, sublime and ethereal garments. Jamdani is a form of loom embroidery with intricate, opaque motifs woven over a fine muslin base. The process involves skilfully fashioning and interlacing geometric motifs while hand weaving the muslin fabric without any loom attachments. Singular in their exquisiteness and beauty, Jamdani fabrics are acutely labor and time-intensive. A craftsman may take months to weave a small quantity of the refined cloth.

Staying true to our minimalist aesthetics and taking our inspiration from some immaculate flowers in nature such as water lilies, geranios and irises, we have designed delicate, airy and intricate motifs on the finest khadi muslins. The silhouettes are breezy and loose evoking the carefree spirit within you. Add them to your wardrobe for that special occasion or feel free and spirited in them all day long. Whatever you choose, remember to preserve them as a legacy that might go extinct in a few years.
