Mudra is a conceptual, art led design studio focusing on our relationship to the planet, as well as each other and turning the unexpected into beautiful conversation. From biomaterial development and fine art to exploring cultural heritage enshrouded in textiles, sustainability and community discourse form the keystone of our practice.
In Sanskrit, Mudra translates to gesture, often used in the Vedic practices of yoga and meditation to invoke various states of being. We hope to offer gestures of what our world is, and could be, through our work.
