Peoli...the spring flower
Peoli is a design studio based in Almora located at the southern edge of the Kumaon Hills of the Himalayan Range in Uttarakhand, North India. Handcrafted from their origin, Peoli’s products are a celebration of the essence of ‘the Handmade’, of the agile fingertips measuring each length of yarn, of the lyrical narratives of the counted woven picks and knitted stitches and of the sensory experience of the granular earthy materials.
The philosophy at PEOLI has emerged from this love for nature and local resources. A strong belief in celebrating and engaging indigenous skills forms the basis of our approach. Simple functional products with minimal aesthetics have been derived from the local skill vocabulary using natural materials and dyes, for the conscious consumers who are sensitive about the resources used in the making of the item they purchase.
The women artisans of the hills, their dexterous hands creating warm pieces of comfort form the fabric of our organization. We, at PEOLI aim at nurturing the creativity of the hand and cultivating a culture of providing a fair means of livelihood to skilled people through our sustainable practices and promotion of a sustainable lifestyle.
