If you are ensconced in history or find incomparable solace from culture and arts, Owl’s Awl is what you need to be looking at. Their mythology inspired bookmarks and paper dolls had us in awe and we are certain, you will be engrossed in them as well. Based out of Thiruvananthapuram, Sruthi and Sharat started Owl’s Awl in order to narrate stories of their local cultures and traditions. With the 2020 lockdown giving the duo the ideal kickstart, they decided to launch their interests into a full fledged business, in a sustainable manner using sustainable products.
Owl’s Awl sells hand-painted bookmarks and paper dolls that are coloured using opaque watercolours. Some of their bestsellers include the articulated paper doll sets of Pancha Pandava and Velakali, based on the Mahabharata epic and art forms performed outside the Padmanabha Temple during the famous Painkuni Festival in Thiruvananthapuram. For a more physically engaging paper doll, we suggest their Parunthattam paper doll, resembling the dance of an eagle that has wings that can be manually spread. The erstwhile Travancore Kingdom can never be bereft of royalty with the Anchal Oottakkaran articulated paper doll set that has the state messenger bird depicted by means of a postal box.
A myriad of colours depicting the cultural ethos of Thiruvananthapuram, nay, customs of the Travancore Dynasty, these products would make for some good decor products as well as stationery. The brand’s products hover around INR 300 - INR 400 and deliveries are pan-India. Clear your queries and place your orders through LBB’s Enquire Now feature.
