KALASH

Project I worked on as part of the Design Team while I was employed as Lead Jewelry and Accessories Designer by Shubinak Pvt. Ltd.

Experience of Kalash valley is an indulgent one. It almost cajoles you into keeping away from the chaotic outside life. Kalash is awash with color. It is almost as if the moist, lush greens and deep, softy blues of the mountains, river, and sky soak into you. The uniqueness of the culture, religious practices of the people of Kalash and the strange traditions come as a breath of fresh air.  The people of Kalash are devoted to their traditions and culture and don’t violate their traditions and conventions. Their culture is a treasure belonging not only to Pakistan but to the whole world. Kalash is isolated and is not integrated into the mainstream Pakistani society. This project aims to preserve their culture and integrates it in a positive way by contributing in a local movement that was once started in 2001 as Kalash culture saving society (KCSS), aiming to protect the culture and conserve it for future generation. Getting inspiration from the culture and dress of Kalash, we have played around with the color palettes. The originality of the Kalash culture provides much room for a creative mind to explore various possibilities within the rich repertoire of design choices that these people have preferred.
