Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have been a sought-after design team in the fashion industry for more than a decade. They are responsible for many of the couture hand embroideries and unique textiles utilized by some of the industry’s most esteemed fashion houses including Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren, Jean- Paul Gaultier and Manolo Blahnik.
In 2004, the high demand for their unique aesthetic led them to launch a luxury home brand, Ankasa. The fashion-forward home collection was an instant hit and their products can be seen in the most exclusive design centers around the world.
Five years later, in 2009, the designers launched their eponymous collection, Sachin & Babi. It was time to get back to their fashion lineage. The evening line stays true to the designers’ luxury roots, yet is accessible to a broader spectrum of women than a typical designer collection.
Visionaries in the field of textiles, the couple introduced in 2015 Ankasa Bespoke with the mantra that luxurious fashion forward textiles could translate to any design aesthetic.
With Ankasa Bespoke, Sachin and Babi have reimagined many of their extraordinary designs and techniques originally created for fashion and translated them into striking yet useable home textiles for a wide range of applications.
As the Ahluwalias create all of their designs in their own production facilities, they can be completely customized to the specifications of the client in both pattern and color. The inaugural collection consists of 22 embroidered and embellished designs which we are showing on both silk and linen ground cloths.
Ankasa Bespoke has also become a major supplier to high-end private properties and hospitality properties that currently include the Wynn Hotels in Las Vegas and Macau a well as W Hotels, Westin Hotels and the new Baccarat Hotel in New York.
