Yogita was fascinated by the trend of – traditional Khun fabric from last two years. Khun is a 4000 year old hand-woven fabric usually worn in north Karnataka and Maharashtra region. It is a cotton or cotton-silk hand-woven fabric, wore as a blouse on sarees.

Going through various DIY videos, she learnt the art of handcrafted jewellery. Yogita experimented with her newly found craft talent with Khun fabric. She received an overwhelming response for her collection and thus decided to continue further. Now Yogita has mastered the art of handcrafted jewellery and sells fabric jewellery made of Khun fabric as well as ikkat fabric under the brand name ‘Saghi”- Tradition Coated with Sass!  Yogita gave us an insight into how it works, she started to be using a high-quality cardboard sheet as a base/frame of fabric and uses oxidized metal ornamentations. This business is more than business as it is also an initiative to style the culture in a new form and make it a trend.
