Kanakavalli’s June Vignette, Saritha Padmanabhan, is an interior designer and a collector of all things beautiful. Saritha spent over two decades working with various multinational corporations, facing numerous challenges as a woman in a male-dominated industry, but also imbibing lessons that continue to serve her at work and in life. In this conversation, Saritha reminisces about growing up in a family that loved art and culture on the one hand, and sport on the other, and how she effortlessly learnt to appreciate both.
Her collection of art and antiques consists of objects inherited, found and bought. For Saritha, the sari is the epitome of both power and elegance, and the kanjivaram is close to her heart. Browsing through the Kanakavalli repertoire between work projects, Saritha curates a selection of saris that reflect her love for beauty and tradition.
