Lost City is a unique design house creating products that support vanishing crafts in India, contrasted by an urban aesthetic.
Using techniques developed under the patronage of the Mughal kings in the 17th century, Lost City is driven by the desire to create the most beautiful hand embroidered products in the world.
Their products are hand made by artisans who have inherited the craft over generations, who would otherwise lose their livelihood.
The possible extinction of these rare skills possessed by families still earning their living working with needle and thread, would deprive us of a sophisticated art form that has existed for over five hundred years.
Lost City's primary goal is to evolve this art by nurturing its craftsmen and using conscientious business practices.
Lost City create, live and work between India and New York.
