Obeetee to bring Abraham & Thakore collaborative collection to Germany, New York
Following the launch of the collaborative collection “Proud to be Indian” by Obeetee and Abraham & Thakore on December 13, the collection is set to be showcased in Germany and New York.
“When we were approached by Obeetee, we were excited to be developing carpets with India’s finest carpet weaving company,” said designers Abraham & Thakore. “We found the premise of the project, which focuses on combining the finest carpet weaving skills of India with an Indian design sensibility both challenging and timely."
The focus of the collection is on textiles, craft, and traceability and last week’s launch showcased the collection to an Indian audience.
Following the Indian launch of the collection, Obeetee will be taking their second “Proud to be Indian” collaboration to New York where the brand has a showroom as well as to Germany. The brand opened their current New York showroom in September last year on West 25th Street.
Regarding the collection, Angelique Dhama, the President of Obeetee, said: “We were aware of the strong Persian and Central Asian design language of most carpets, we felt the time had come to showcase rugs influenced by India’s own textile traditions, but with an evolved design vocabulary.” Dhama added: “We are very excited to join hands with Abraham & Thakore who along with our most experienced weavers, have created some never-seen-before masterpieces. Though the inspiration comes from India’s rich heritage, the elements and colours are fresh and fun, making the whole compilation very contemporary.”
