The renowned Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee has collaborated with 200-year-old British luxury retailer Thomas Goode & Co to create a line of fabulous tableware. The bespoke range of exquisite wedding trousseau, hand-rendered by the 43 artists from the Sabyasachi Art Foundation, was launched earlier this month.
Local flora and fauna, architecture, fables, and folklore are recreated through a hyper imagination of Sabyasachi on the new collection, which includes dinner service designs, glassware, the finest table linen, and other accessories which encapsulate beauty, craftsmanship, and luxury.

Sabyasachi’s creations are steeped in a rich heritage and focus on traditional Indian craftsmanship. Just like all of his designs, the delightful tableware for Thomas Goode & Co is also embedded with tradition, elegance, and refinement.
Rediscovering the connections between London and Calcutta (Kolkata), the designer created the local flora and fauna – palm trees and Bengal tigers on chinaware.
He sought inspiration from the other corners of the country as well. He also used the khanjar style of painting from Persia and French calico prints to beautify the tea sets and dinner plates. The tableware will be delivered in Thomas Goode’s hand-crafted luxury shipping case.
Combining a 200-year old legacy with traditional Indian craftsmanship, the steeped-in-history trousseau seems like a marriage made in heaven.
