The memory of that first Paragon banner pant, made by Ajai tailor in a small town in Maharshtra was a vivid, cross cultural experience that would drive me to many more attempts to bring to life future ideas.

Here, 6 months later, in northern Himachal Pradesh Rais tailor with my Indian matchbox collection he stitched into a postcard.

We also became good friends along with Ganesh, his boss and brother Ram. The story of our time cooking Dal Bat (the national rajasthani dish) and Israeli cousin after hours back in their room is here: http://jpgmag.com/stories/14784

A couple of months later Rais invited me along for his ride back to his native Rajasthani village and spent an unforgettable time at his his family homes there.
