Handloom Expo : Silk India Silk

Here we are with another expo, Silk India Silk, which was held at the lawns of Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur. Despite having attended so many exhibitions, I always get an adrenaline rush before going to one. It has the power to transport you to the dreamy world of Moroccan souks and bazaars. Collect the things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story.

The feel of handwoven fabric. The texture. The weft and the warp. The intricacy of design. The symmetry and also the idiosyncrasies of handmade. The centuries old craft traditions that are reverently passed on from one generation of artisans to the next. The story behind each gorgeous yard of a saree. The wonder at the skill, the passion and the sheer hard work that goes into create something so beautiful.

Oh, the love for handwoven Indian textiles, you and I – we know what that feelslike! . Here are the pictures-

And because we love our textiles so much, we should do what we can to save them ❤️❤️

Bookaroo : Children’s Literature Festival

Jaipur hosts Asia’s largest literary event – “Jaipur Literature Festival” every year, but it was wonderful to see “Bookaroo“- a literature festival exclusively for children come to the city. It was so fascinating to see little ones taking part in various events and exploring the world of books. Reading has the power to change lives and it is very important to inculcate this habit right from childhood.

The festival was organised at Jawahar Kala Kendra for two days and had workshops, storytelling sessions, debates, reading area, book stall and a lot of other fun activities for children. Here are certain clicks from the event –

Brand Review : Love This Stuff

“The biggest challenge is to be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you like everyone else” – this is the core philosophy of Lovethisstuff. Founded by an ISB alumnus, Lovethisstuff has products that are unique and reflect the individuality in you. The brand brings together creative entrepreneurs, designers and craftsmen from across India orchestrating an eclectic display of their original work.

The best segment of products are the personalised ones and I would recommend the brand especially for customised gifts. There are a number of options wherein you can go for customised stationery, jewellery, bags, home-decor etc. A customised gift, no matter big or small, reflects the fact that we have taken some time out of our busy lives and used it to make the giftee feel special. The website is user friendly and one can easily place an order. It took about a week for the stuff to get delivered. I am quite satisfied with the products and the pricing is commensurate with quality.

Here’s a look at what I ordered –
