Three reasons why we love couturier Rohit Bal’s Crystalware Collection
AUG 31, 2016 | By Nupur Ashok Sarvaiya
Veteran designer Rohit Bal moves beyond his fashion canvases and sketches an exquisite crystalware range comprising bowls, vases, tea sets, platters, salvers, vases and urns. Aptly titled, A Crystalware Collection, handcrafted in Slovakia, the line is made of 24 percent lead crystal. We particularly love the fact that the borders and bases have been crafted in 24 carat gold and the pure platinum.
Another reason, Rohit Bal has collaborated for the first time with the artisans and crystal cutters of Czech Republic, Slovakia and Central Europe to create this handcrafted repertoire. From lotus gardens to dancing peacocks, the designs, shapes and motifs used in the crystalware reflect Rohit’s inimitable signature style, replete with strong Indian sensibility and European craftsmanship.
The best part? It also includes an affordable tableware range in the form of glasses – champagne flutes, red wine and white wine glasses, water goblets, tumblers for whisky and decanters all in crystal. A timely launch, the crystalware is perfect for the upcoming festive season. Simply play with them as statement pieces with minimum decor settings.
