Pero collaborates with Afghani refugee women to create crochet garments
Aneeth Arora’s sustainable fashion and lifestyle brand Pero has worked with a group of Afghani refugees to create ‘engineered crochet’ garments, which mix wool yarn and textiles, for its new collection, ‘Mini’.
Pero has worked with Afghani craftswomen for its knitwear designs in the past and, this season, worked with the craftspeople to develop a style of crochet which can be used to join together scraps of fabric, the brand announced on Facebook. The mix of crochet and panels of fabric creates intricate patterns in the brand’s signature bright colour palette.
Pero has worked with craftspeople across India since its inception and this season has strengthened its links with the Afghani craft community. The brand has also released a fashion film featuring the experimental crochet pieces created by Flying Boots Production in collaboration with Feat Artists as well as a behind-the-scenes film to showcase the artisans working on the garments’ construction.
The brand also recently held a launch for its latest collection at multi-brand luxury Indian fashion boutique Ogaan at its Khan Market location in New Delhi. The brand installation features Mini’s hand crochet items as well as coats, printed dresses, and accessories.
As Pero continues to expand its fast-growing international distribution network, it has also launched its Mini collection at Raccolta Differenziata in Trento, Italy; Lotus in Kumamoto, Japan; and Bertinotti Lecco in Lombardia, Italy, among other international boutiques.
