What is Urban Medley ?
A medley of heritage, art and fine craftsmanship. In other words, all things beautiful, which adds a little more colour and fun to life. It recognizes and celebrates traditional art, embroidery and printing forms of India which if not supported today by the conscious consumers a rich heritage may be lost to us forever.
Why are we Urban Medley ?
Because we create every product specially for you, so that you can make it a part of your urban life- your busy, everyday life where often you miss out on taking a moment to relax, enjoy and relish the small but finer things.
Urban Medley is not aimed simply to create a transparent brand but it is about sharing a style statement which proudly reflects tradition intercepted with bold strokes of modernity. It’s colorful, boundless, energetic and involves a lot of experimentation.
We are not bound by age, gender, race, colour and not even size, hence we choose sustainable, handmade ethically produced accessories, as our main focus point. We give you the space to create your own style using the many fashion items we bring to you on this platform.
