This Popular Handloom Store Empowers 300 Women And You Get Merch For Just INR 150
What Makes It Awesome
Showcasing the work of over 300 women, weavers and artisans from Charaka Society, a Shimoga-based cooperative – Desi Shop is a favourite with every conscious shopper in the city. For those of you who love to bring beauty mixed with sustainability to your living spaces, you’ll be happy to know that Desi Shop has just launched a home furnishings range. As of now, the furnishings are limited to curtains, cushion covers, and simple bedspreads. Like the rest of the shop, the furnishings range too is all about quality, handspun cotton that feature simple designs.
The curtains begin at INR 550 for the plain off-white ones while those adorned with floral and traditional motifs crafted from natural dyes cost about INR 580 a pop. These, we think, are a great buy cause they are long-lasting and can withstand the onslaught of dust that our homes are subjected to every day. The cushion cover options are more colourful. You can get subtle mauves, deep browns, and mellow yellows. These come in stripes, mixed hues, and with paisley or other intricate patterns. These cost about INR 150 per piece and come in a variety of sizes so you won’t have any trouble mixing and matching.
