Ishmeet Kaur, a local Bay Area graphic designer, collaborated with Phulkari Co. to create tees. Here is a little something from Ishmeet:
Fun fact! If you asked me if I could see myself as a designer a year ago, I’d be hysterical and say you have a great sense of humor. Clearly, one accidental run-in with Adobe Illustrator changed that for me. My collaboration with Phulkari Co., Punjab Di Lishkariyaan, was created in representation and respect of (South Asian) women. Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s tukk, or verse, inspired this design—“Why should we talk ill of her, who gives birth to kings?” Although evolved, parts of society still believe that daughters are meant to put dinner on the table and raise kids someday. Unfortunate, but that gives us chance to break free and define who we are for ourselves. I’m a #PhullanWargiDesigner. What are you?
