SUNDAY / MONDAY is a textile brand established by wife and husband team, Nisha Mirani and Brendan Kramer.
OUR MISSION is to produce handmade textiles honoring India’s ancient craftsmanship traditions to support master artisans and preserve the future of the craft.
SUNDAY / MONDAY directly partners with master weavers in the desert region of Kutch, which is located in the western state of Gujarat, India. Gujarat is a longtime hub of handicrafts and textiles. Unfortunately, many age-old techniques there are threatened by technology and a changing market. Our weavers and block printers are the foundation of SUNDAY / MONDAY. By properly compensating them for their artistry and trade, we hope to encourage younger generations that weaving is a profitable and respectable profession, helping to preserve the craft for years to come. We are dedicated to honoring this cultural legacy by ethically sourcing our products and helping revitalize the local economy.
SUNDAY / MONDAY hopes to challenge conventional ideas about traditional Indian design by promoting some of the more minimal and monochromatic traditions indigenous to the region. Our textiles are a mix of our own designs inspired by traditional motifs and patterns designed by the weavers themselves, some of which have been in their families for generations. We have limited inventory of each design because of the tremendous time and effort that goes into handcrafting each textile.
Our hand block printed khadi textiles are all designed in New York and printed by master block printers in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
SUNDAY / MONDAY comes from a phrase used in India to indicate the duality of textiles. Oftentimes, an Indian textile is reversible, with a different pattern or color scheme on the other side. In a practical sense, textiles can be multi-functional - serving as art, rugs, or throws.
