Founded by textile designer Kamala Murali, kambli – for blanket in Tamil – is a design studio based in Chennai, India. Informed by traditional practices of repair and reuse, as well as ways of textile-making in India and other Eastern countries, kambli draws inspiration from Japanese boro cloth, Korean jogakbos, India’s Siddhi patchwork quilts and traditional kaantha embroideries. There is an honest, distinctive quality to our textile work that explores the potential of pre-consumer discarded and surplus materials, and elevates it to that of luxurious, one-of-a-kind pieces made for contemporary living.
