We are Farheen and Ozma; sisters who grew up in India, lived and worked in the UK and together, we are FARO.
FARO is founded on our shared love of Indian artistry and colour.
Growing up as children in India, we learnt to appreciate the skill, effort and time involved in creating a beautiful textile or item of clothing. A special outfit for Eid or Diwali was never off-the-peg; items were made-to-measure and finished by hand with luxurious detail. We treasured those items, aware of how unique they were. We bring the same discerning eye and attention-to-detail to every item Faro produces today. It’s a dream to be able to spend our time developing new techniques and designs for our own business; a typical day might be spent sketching ideas for a new product or visiting artisans in our workshops to finalise a new print or embroidery. Together, we are proud to design beautiful homewares, clothing and accessories that are made by artisans in India, and we are passionate about keeping traditional crafts – like weaving, block printing and embroidery – alive.
We believe in rewarding our artisans fairly for their work, and in creating products that are as sustainable as they are luxurious.
We believe that surrounding ourselves with colour, print, pattern and beauty can have a profoundly positive effect on our surroundings – and our entire outlook on life.
We hope you agree, and like what you see. Happy shopping!
