Dora by Phoenix, a brainchild of Kakali Biswas, was born in 2019 with an endeavour to bring the textiles of Bengal to women all over the world. Having established herself as a fashion and lifestyle influencer on Instagram, Kakali ventured into this business after quitting her successful corporate career of 20 years and named it after her late mother from whom she picked up her love for six yards. In 2020 she entered into a partnership with Priyama Chowdhury, who also quit her career as a successful banker to take the plunge and together they slowly and organically grew their client base. Today Kakali and Priyama are leaving no stone unturned to reach out to as many artisans and weavers as possible and promote various weaves of India and at the same time trying to advocate the cause of sustainability through their brand Dora. From Bengal Cottons to ajrakhs to south cottons, block and screen prints, hand embroidery, Dora’s offering of a plethora of sarees is a classic embodiment of the free spirited woman who loves to combine the modern with comfort and conventionality.
