NorBlack NorWhite sprung from the seed of digging deeper into our roots. Raised in Toronto, we (Amrit and Mriga) made our way to Bombay in 2010 to understand where we came from and explore other ways of living. While surveying crafts, life in all lanes, and snacks from the streets, we discovered the foundations of what would eventually become NBNW--India's exceptional craftsmanship, an exploration of culture + our sweet, sweet FRIENDSHIP.
Bandhani was just the beginning. NBNW's iconic 'BomBombers' (reversible silk suits in the textile of our dreams) opened the floodgates. We knew then this was the only way of working we could fully embrace. Digging deep to learn about old-school textiles; so we can respect them as we reinterpret things into fresh formats and what we wear on the streets everyday.
To respect the past is to respect the process and the people who carry it forward.
