A romance with designing is how Sucheta Merh describes her long involvement with fashion. Now one of Kolkata's foremost designers, she started out with a print and natural dye unit only to create a range of unusual handicraft fabrics, which were styled into ensembles.

She has developed a unique style through a mix of patchwork prints, embroidery and textures created with natural dyes and otherwise. She devotes her energies into reviving old crafts like Batik and tribal embroidery on saris and fabrics.

Her collections are mainly fusion prêt, using earthy fabrics in earthy colours, badla work with tie-n-dye, batik, greidge fabric and surface ornamentation and texturization. She retails at Fflio, Ogaan, Elahe, Melange, Oorja, Origins, Designer Studio and Elan. Not to mention her fashion studio, Earthy Myths in Kolkata.
