In 2004, this self-confessed luxury vagabond moved from New York to India to create the Love Travel brand and set up an artisanal publishing house. Fiona’s discerning eye for the singular experiences that set a destination apart has resulted in the completely hand-crafted books becoming regarded as the flagship guides for India. Vanity Fair (UK) ranked them within the top three guides globally. The world’s leading travel editors, other elite travel planners and the best hotel concierges use them as reference guides.
In 2016, Fiona launched a second series, starting with Made in Kolkata and in 2017 followed with Made in Bengaluru. These specialist titles explore the destinations through the lens of makers and have already become regarded as invaluable source guides for designers and stylists across the globe. The complete collection of six books are retailed from this site and also are available at discerning bookstore, boutiques around the world including museum stores, such as the V&A in London and the Asia Society in Hong Kong.
