Collection – Polka Heartland

Buna is a new way of life - one that is rooted in culture, craft and community. Buna stands at an interesting intersection of local and global, traditional and innovative, classic and contemporary.
We believe in looking back while moving forward. Buna is about slow living with sustainability at its heart. For us the process is as important as the product. Our story is a collective narrative of all the makers whose shared efforts culminate in a beautiful legacy.

Polka Heartland takes us back to the time when summers meant elaborate picnics on lazy days, with piles of homemade food on checkered tablecloths. It captures the wistfulness of an era long past but never forgotten. Polka heartland borrows the ageless pattern, and gives it a Buna twist. These garments are the perfect companions for casual brunches and lazy strolls. Pleats, gathers, paneling, hand block-printing and embroidery are some of the additions that make this collection indispensable to summer living.
About
Buna is a new way of life - one that is rooted in culture, craft and community. Buna stands at an interesting intersection of local and global, traditional and innovative, classic and contemporary. We believe in looking back while moving forward. Buna is about slow living with sustainability at its heart. For us the process is as important as the product. Our story is a collective narrative of all the makers whose shared efforts culminate in a beautiful legacy. Buna grew as a response to an ever changing world. It signals a shift from rapid consumption and disposal to ethical choices and mindful living. It recognizes that green fashion is no longer an alternative, but a necessity. At Buna, we take responsibility for the earth and consciously strive towards reducing waste and devising eco-friendly methods of production. Buna is the brainchild of Pallavi Shantam, a fashion graduate from NIFT. Her love for Indian crafts and textiles, slow fashion, sustainable design and minimalism found an expression in Buna. It is her dream to create urban sanctuaries, spaces where one may retre­at to, for serenity and joy. Our range of clothing & lighting revolves around the premise of inspiring thoughtfulness. We use handwoven textiles, natural materials and artisanal techniques to create products with a global and timeless appeal.
