Our Story

 

portrait of Suchira and Kalpana, Founders of Suchiras, Inc.

 

 

 

Originally founded in 2010 by a mother daughter team, the Suchiras brand was created to celebrate the ancient Indian art of hand-printed textiles, while showcasing designs and color palettes inspired by years of traveling to India and living on Cape Cod. Merging two cultures that were both very much a part of us, and crafting thoughtful home textiles with quality materials.

My mother, Kalpana, passed away February 3, 2020. She was diagnosed with ALS in April 2018 and fought for 1 1/12 years. My mother accomplished so many beautiful things with her time on earth. An architect by trade and an artist at heart. She was a loving wife and lifelong partner to my father, she raised two daughters, and was a grandmother to three children, whose characters and names were often an inspiration for our designs.
Creating Suchiras together is an experience l am grateful to have had. I move forward knowing I have this platform to continue to spread my mother’s essence, her style and grace throughout each new collection.

What began years ago as a way to honor our Indian heritage and blend it with modern day comfort, has grown into something larger; to celebrate home.
