Description

Godugulu (Umbrellas in Telugu, my mother tongue) is a fun vest for kids that uses techniques like Intarsia and stranded crochet to bring joy in the dull rainy weather.

The Indian monsoons are a source of joy, wherever you may be! But it’s the ubiquitous umbrella that breaks all barriers of economic status, region, age and religion. These umbrellas come in various colours and patterns making an interesting vista.

With the slight nip in the air, kids can don this fun vest made in their favourite colours!
