Ever since she launched her eponymous label about a decade ago, Anavila Misra has been reinventing the classic handloom sari through her unique minimalistic design board. With great success, might we add? Then, in another trailblazing move, she created her unique sari-clad doll, Busa, which means little sister in Sanskrit. The first Indian designer to foray into kids’ toys, she has now launched an entire coterie of companions for Busa, which includes rabbits, dogs, giraffes and monkeys, all of whom tell tales from the Panchatantra. Leftover organic fabrics from her production are used to stitch tiny saris, salwar suits, dresses and many more.
