Colors perk me up. Similar to music, there is a color for every mood and emotion. And, there is a definite energy & vibe that colors bring to our lives, then be it the emerald green of the palm, bright mustard of marigold, indigo of dabu or pink…pink of roses, of grapefruit, of lehariya, of bandhani, of Jaipur, of cherry blossoms, of marshmallows, of diamonds & most importantly pink of versatility & all things beautiful. My roots lie in the beautiful city of Jaipur, the fixation to colors must have something to do with that. Pink, definitely so. But, not just in a feminine way but as a symbol of pride, welcoming spirit, hospitality & respect.
All along I wanted to share the optimism & happiness that colors bring to life. Add to it, the house proud in me and desire to create and curate pieces that have power to enrich lives, spaces and moments of everyone involved in the value chain, from the wonderful customer to the precious artisan. All of this culminated into making of Pinklay. What started off as my story in December 2015 in our modest yet tastefully done guest room in Mumbai has become a story of many enormously talented people who work every day with much love to create wonderful pieces that will hopefully brighten up your homes.
During one of my trips back to our workshop in Jaipur, while watching the lovely sunset behind the Aravalli and sipping masala chai, I scribbled few lines that formed the heart of Pinklay –
“Pinklay is a welcome pause, away from humdrum.
A visual delight, a fresh breath of life.
It believes, it hopes.
It’s joyful in appearance and sincere in character.
It’s a keeper.”
We hope to translate this into what Pinklay stands for today and in the coming years.
What does Pinklay mean?
Pink for its versatility, pink for my hometown and clay for its extraordinary ability to mould into anything, effortlessly. It’s a creative hands delight.
