“Two years ago during my visit to Rajasthan for a shoot, I had a chance encounter with Lekhraj Ji, while he was painting the walls of City Palace. Intrigued and inspired by the intricacy of his work and his flawless brush strokes, I immediately knew I wanted to give this art another form of life. We chatted about his art and he shared stories of his work being inconsistent. What fuels my creativity today is not just restricted to design but also about reviving the craft. So, I invited Lekhraj Ji over to our design headquarters in Mumbai and that is how the Piccwai Collection came to life.” – Anita Dongre
