Let me introduce you to Kym Hilsher, creator of Sundara, an Indian inspired clothing and accessory line featuring unique finds and designs from India. Not only is Kym the founder of Sundara, but she also happens to be my mom and is one amazing lady!
Sundara was founded after several trips to India that my mom made with her previous job. She would bring back amazing hand sewn clothing and jewelry for her friends and family and realized there was a need for such unique pieces in the market. Starting with my great-grandmother, the women in our family have always had a knack for fashion (I clearly get it honestly). So this business came very naturally. Her love of fashion and her passion for the artistry in India and what they were creating, led her to start Sundara. Sundar is Hindi for beautiful and by adding a at the end, it became the feminine version of beautiful.
Four years later, my mom is striving to do just that, make women feel beautiful by offering pieces that are special! I can tell you first hand, that the pieces she offers are unique and stunning. The attention to detail that India offers in their clothing and accessories blows me away every time.
Recently Kym went back to India on one of her regular buying trips where there she works with her manufacturer and exporter to create pieces for her line as well as purchasing from other markets and artisans around the country. Her passion for the country and the people translate through her love of the fashion and traditions that she brings back to offer us.
Here are some behind the scenes shots at what her trip looks like when she goes!
Let's talk about the food for a second and how bad I want to go there and eat some myself! I had to add a few food pics in here because, well because that's what I do...but seriously I want to try all of this! I am going to tag along on one of her buying trips in the near future I can promise you that and I'm going to bring an empty stomach and a full wallet!
Yum..ok moving on..
I am dying to visit this amazing, beautiful, and colorful country for myself, but in the meantime I'll keep experiencing it though the clothes that I can get from my mom! And guys, half of my wardrobe is from Sundara. I literally request to be the first one to see any of the goodies that she gets in!
Currently Sundara sells wholesale to boutiques as well as selling retail at markets such as Round Top in Round Top, Texas. If you are looking for unique clothing and accessories that are both beautifully made and that no one else will have, then you must check this line out! It's boho, colorful, and full of personality so that you can be you when you get dressed.
