Chiaroscuro is the creation of a growing team. Each member has over a decade of experience within the leather industry, both within India & outside of it. The experience has been with a wide range of organisations including fast fashion retailers, designer labels, exporters, large scale manufacturers, small scale workshops and wholesalers.
While providing a strong training, understanding, know-how and skill to each member of our founding team, the experience also confronted us repeatedly with various practices that we felt could be bettered.
Chiaroscuro is an effort to create with a more informed, sensitive and sustainable approach.
