Beacon Hill Announces Ankasa: Iconic
New Collection of Captivating Textiles
In a dynamic collaboration, Beacon Hill has partnered with Ankasa to create the Iconic Collection, an extraordinary set of highly original embroideries and jacquards. Ankasa Iconic is centered around the unique techniques and designs that have made Ankasa a beloved home furnishings and fashion brand. The Ankasa brand, created by co-founders, Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia, combines traditional techniques with leading contemporary design. It is a perfect addition to the Beacon Hill house of custom textiles.
Robert Allen’s Beacon Hill brand, known for captivating and original design, translated Ankasa’s unique look to fabric by the yard, producing rich textures, intricate embroidery and their signature color palette.
To create the collection, Alexis Audette, operating vice president of design for Beacon Hill worked with Sachin and Babi and trusted artisans from around the world. The embroideries were realized in artisan studios of India, while the jacquards come from France and Italy and the linens are sourced in Belgium.
For Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia,
“True to the Ankasa design philosophy, we believe in the beauty of contrast, and frequently used elegant and understated linen fabrics to showcase extraordinary techniques. Hues in the collection were drawn from nature and feature deep indigos and soft sands for a subtly rich feel.”
