bella tu is a luxury resort collection that reflects a modern fusion of ancient Indian motifs and embellishment traditions of hand beading, embroidery and block printing. Each bella tu style in the collection is designed and crafted with care.

The collection uses a variety of fabrics that complement each unique design. Linens are hand embroidered, cottons are hand block printed, hand beaded and embroidered, velvets and linen/viscose are hand beaded.

All of the gorgeous viscose prints are designed in house. We love viscose as it looks and feels like silk but can be hand washed in cold water. It is great for travel!

All bella tu styles are designed by Jeanne Daniel and produced with care in the Gopi Vaid Mumbai manufacturing facility by a team of exceptional craftsmen.

In India, Gopi Vaid is a highly regarded designer and brand well known for Kurti’s and beautiful Saris worn by women of influence and Bollywood stars.

Jeanne traveled to India and fell in love with the Kurti tunic and the Sari. The sensual fabric drape of these pieces on Indian women of all ages, combined with unique beading detail in sumptuous colors, inspired the specialty collection of bella tu.
