Luxury Indian home textiles brand Bandit Queen was founded in 2009 following the meeting of Sunita Namjoshi (entrepreneur and founder of Mumbai-based Synergy Lifestyles) and Valerie Barkowski (art director and designer).
With showrooms in Mumbai and Milan, the ethereal collection is inspired by the enigmatic legend of the Indian Bandit Queen. It comprises handmade bed linen, bath linen, table linen and accessories.
Previously only available in India and Italy, Bandit Queen recently launched at Le Bon Marche in Paris, and is set for distribution in London and New York next season. Stylus speaks to creative director Valerie Barkowski.
