The Coolie range is inspired by the childhood memories of Anand Prakash and his long-distance travel on Indian Railways. What he couldn’t ever miss were the porters in their red shirts and gold armbands. There was something about the red and the gold and it has inspired him to bring out this whimsical range as an ode to Indian Railways aka भारतीय रेल
