Q5. Write your autobiography ?
Right after graduating from NIFT New Delhi, the founder, Richa Meena set out to build a brand rooted in the culture and heritage of her birth place,Rajasthan.
Kaala Teeka was born out of this desire to amalgamate the easy urban silhouettes with the crafts that she grew up watching and appreciating. The name, Kaala Teeka, itself comes from something very personal, symbolic of the beauty mark that adorns our founder’s face. This personal approach to things is carried through to every stage of our garment making, from selection of fabrics to working with artisans in Jaipur and New Delhi. Always experimenting with new silhouettes that work for our urban consumer with craft practices that need our attention, we care about the little details that otherwise go unnoticed.
