You’ll love every little trinket since they’re all unique, and bespoke in the sense that each piece is limited in number you won’t see it being lapped up by every one you know. It’s not the denim-jacket-from-Sarojini fad.
Luxury and quality taken care of, the products can range from Rs 500, shooting upto Rs 15,000. Finesse comes at a price. So does international shipping and direct mail order to your address.
Keep some room in your budget for shipping charges, because you can’t put a price at art, but the same can’t be said about sourcing that piece of art from the opposite end of the world.
It’s a MUST TRY!
