"It is amazing what a woman can do if she ingnores what men tell her she can't".. Carol K. Karr
Many have asked me why "stoles"? My answer to them would be that it is a very interesting Fashion Accessory to uplift any outfit. It also has a very strong western connect. And here is the bridge with the modern Indian woman. These days with more women in the professional sphere, dressing smart is a necessity! ArtEastri handcrafted stoles for women are meant for smart dressers. I am of Bengali origin but have also spent a larger part of my life in Assam where weaving is a part of life for many households. Our Ahimsa Silk Stole Range brings in the flavours of Assam. The name of my brand "ArtEastri" says it all - art forms from the East crafted mostly by women ( Stri in Hindi means a "woman"), being sold through a venture started by a woman!
