The radiant sun bathing the whole world in a warm glow, the blue sky stretched towards the horizon, meeting with the liquid golden swathe of the wheat, the gentle breeze soothing the blossoming flora with the sweet promise of the warmth to come; she stands there with her tousled hair, and hears in each little brook a new melody, with a thrill of joy for all the choices to come, each one of them laden with discoveries.

Inspired by the Japanese ideology of wabi-sabi, referring to that which is imperfect, impermanent, aged, humble and authentic. An aesthetic that embraces the value of passing of time, the seasoning of time and the elements, the handmade and the simple. Wabi-sabi is a way of being open to emotion and acceptance, a state of mind and a state of feeling.

Embodying the philosophy of wabi sabi in the design process, it is visible in the finished designs through the subtle hues, natural materials; evident through the frayed edges and the visible stitching and asymmetry. Broken Brook uses fine handloom cotton, gold zari, cotton crochet and hand detailing to give the garments more meaning; that exudes wholeness and share a story. A selection of well thought through pieces, consciously-sourced and tactile textures, challenging the traditional perception of beauty and celebrating the unique and imperfect.
