Old Bombay Type: Comrade Tailor  

If you walk into the Lad Museum in Byculla, they have rows and rows of well crafted dolls of people of Mumbai in the 19th century. Everybody had a uniform that branded them based on their community, where they fit in society and what they did. That was an age when brands didn’t start branding what you wore, depending on who you are, depending on what you did.
