Kumari’s Bloor-Yorkville label is a personal project inspired by my time as a buyer for a major brand for which I travelled extensively to fashion shows and product events across North America and Europe.
That inspiration lead to the launch of my own brand, which is today Kumari’s.
My mission is simple - to resource, design, and deliver outstanding products made from the finest materials, and with unparalleled craftsmanship from around the world.
Kumari’s is a celebration of the extraordinary work by talented designers and artisans around the world; the synthesis of dedication and passion.
It is a recognition of the privilege I feel in representing and highlighting the work of so many talented people I meet on my travels to some of the most exotic and remote places.
There is so much complexity and subtlety in so much we take for granted.
At Kumari’s I want to share this subtlety and elegance, and to bring to you the luxury and opulence of the extraordinary I encounter and experience on my adventures to far flung and exotic destinations across the world.
The result is a synthesis of diverse cultural and artistic influences in the creation of uniquely luxurious and sought pieces - a kaleidoscope of colours in handwoven silk, cashmere, and cotton; and exquisite embroidery and design.
I am fortunate and privileged to meet some of the most extraordinary artisans on my travels.
I recognize this privilege as a responsibility for ensuring that our products and transactions are based in the pursuit of ethical enterprise, sustainability, and social responsibility.
I invite you to join me in this journey.
