BISKIT was started by siblings Harsha Biswajit and Shruti Biswajit with a vision to create a multi-disciplinary studio exploring the boundaries between art and design. In 2017 they established BISKIT - a unisex concept label that merges their futuristic visual aesthetic with a minimal and functional sense of design.
Seeing how the clothing industry has long been shaped and categorized by menswear and womenswear, they wanted to break this duality by challenging an archaic industrial concept that pre determines the gender of a fabric even before you have the freedom to choose for yourself. In other words, they wanted to give the choice back to YOU to decide what you feel comfortable wearing.
Since the inception, the focus has always been about story telling and it is this that drives the creative process. Everything that comes out of the BISKIT studio is concept driven and always tells a story connected to the larger ideas being explored at the time. Therefore a BISKIT piece is designed to stand the test of time rather than conform to the cyclical nature of seasons.
From 2021, every studio piece is hand made at SPACE BISKIT, Madras, India and is limited to a maximum of 21 editions per style.
As part of our new initiative to limit our production levels, we have decided to only make either single-edition pieces (one-offs) or a maximum of 21 editions of every style from any piece made from concept 2 onwards. We want our focus to be on quality and we want you to know exactly how many pieces we make each year. This is our way of being transparent and responsible.
If its not a single edition style, every piece you buy from us will have an edition label from 1 – 21 stitched into the garment.
We may decide to stop production of a particular style at anytime before reaching 21 editions. When we do so, we will update how many editions of these pieces exist in the world.
Our super limited one-off pieces will be tagged with a Special Edition Label stitched into the garment so that you know there is only 1 of this in the world.
All our limited edition pieces are handmade in our studio in Madras, India.
THE UNISEX SYMBOL
Inspired by the nature of impossible objects,the Biskit logo seeks to challenge the perception of the viewer by bringing two perspectives into one form. If you look closely, the perspective of the rectangle changes from top to bottom. The idea of the symbol is to communicate the unisex, singular nature of our design ethos by merging menswear & womenswear into one symbol; one identity.
