ISHO collaborates with Kanak Chanpa Chakma to launch Char Nari series
A furniture and lifestyle brand that's been known for constantly pushing the envelope with its unique products and industry-first collaborations, ISHO has exclusively collaborated with eminent artist, Kanak Chanpa Chakma for the first time ever.
This creative alliance showcases Kanak Chanpa's captivating designs based on her perception of the 4 women who define Bangladesh. These designs are brought to life through ISHO's limited-edition Char Nari home collection that represents the modern working women in leadership positions, the homemakers, the women at the garment factories, and the ethnic indigenous women.
Kanak Chanpa Chakma, an elite visual artist, is renowned for her vivid paintings depicting the lives of Bangladeshi women and ethnic tribes, and was awarded the coveted Ekushey Padak on 21 February, 2023. The conferring of this second-highest civilian honour in Bangladesh makes her the only artist to be included in the list of eminent cultural personalities this year. Her compelling works deeply embed cultural identity, traditions, and human rights and many of them focus on her roots in the indigenous Chakma community.
The Char Nari home collection was officially launched at ISHO Baridhara on 1 March, at a grand Artists' event as the brand honoured Kanak Chanpa and her contribution to art that has received national and global recognition, bringing immense pride to our country. The exhibition was attended by prolific artists, art curators, and media journalists as the collection was beautifully displayed in a well-curated setup at the flagship store.
