Our Story

I am an Oakland-based designer with a love affair for ancient textile techniques. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to visit India, at first to learn more about my partners heritage and culture. Through the years of visiting this fascinating place, I quickly became enamored with India’s exquisite handcraft traditions. And so Busyland was born. For me, Busyland is a journey and neverending exploration to learn about and showcase the captivating world of ancient South Asian handcraft techniques. Busyland exists as a shared world between two cultures and communities that mean everything to me. As we welcome our first child this year, we have the joy of imparting the best of these two worlds. Through Busyland’s imaginative curations and collaborations, I hope to share the best of these two worlds with you too.
