We’re putting good use to our favourite pastime and bringing you the best of our shopping and lifestyle discoveries every week.

Remember, you heard about the coolest and newest online shopping here on LBB first.

Studio Ataash

City-based artist and potter Ambica Shankar  makes really gorgeous glazed ceramic crockery. Think mugs, tumblers, serving bowls and dishes, and even one-of-a-kind dinner plates. She also does planters and vases. The potter stays far away from the usual floral designs and instead focuses on a lot of textures and abstract design.

Price: INR 200 upwards

Contact: Email Ambica at to see her work and to order from her.

Slinky sling backs, elegant wedges, casual sliders and leather sneakers, Drish’s leather shoes for women are stunners. So is their range of basic belts, bracelets, wallets and handbags including styles such as the bucket, tote, slings and backpacks, all fashioned out of leather. Menfolk, you can pick form their range of casual loafers in eye-popping colours to their formal dress shoes, but with interesting details such as buckles. There’s also smart overnighters, laptop bags, passport holders, belts and wallets. We also love the fact that they have a rather cute collection for kids too including really simple black Mary Janes {remember the Bata ones?} for school girls to slightly dressier sandals, and sneakers, loafers, and boots for little boys.

Price: INR 650 upwards
