John Singh was the son of a Rajput nobleman. Faith Singh was the daughter of British missionaries. They met in Jaipur in 1967 by the pool of Rambagh Palace and the rest, as they say, is history. Faith was entranced by the colors and patterns of Indian textiles, and by the disappearing art of block printing which had once been a thriving part of the community in and around Jaipur. A philanthropist to the bone, John wanted to save the craft from extinction and to resurrect a sustainable livelihood for the many craftsmen who create quality hand-printed fabric.
And so Anokhi was born. In 1970 their prints first appeared in London, and Anokhi quickly gained a devoted international following.
