Turn up the quirk quotient of your space with leaf art decor and accessories from Bangalore-based brand Aralikale. Made with peepal leaves and natural vegetable and coffee dyes, these products are creative and eco-friendly.
Coasters, Lamps And Even Mouse Pads, Aralikale Does It All With Peepal Leaves
Dyed in pretty pastels, these paper-thin dried peepal leaves are incorporated into a range of decor — from trays to wooden and paper lamps to mouse pads. We spotted the brand when they set up shop at Dastkar this year and we loved their collection of quirky stuff. The clear glass placemats with leaves pressed in between them and the paper ceiling lamps are just a few things we found and loved. We’re also liking their mobiles made with tiny hanging birds that are novel and intricately done. Ladies, Aralikale makes lovely leaf earrings too that are just the accessories to make your whole outfit pop. Available in white, greens and light pinks, these make for a pretty pair with just the right touch of whimsy. Prices are reasonable too, starting at just INR 150.
Home Is Where The Art Is
A venture started and run by a Bangalorean teacher Jagadish, Aralikale taps into his inner artist and creativity in his spare time and operates out of his own home in JP Nagar. He says an idea for a new product can strike at any time and he prefers to be around his art and tools to put it all together. Apart from leaf art, expect clocks, earrings, tray and more made from vegetables and even old cassette tapes.
Check out Aralikale’s products on Facebook here and if you like what you see, head down to Jagadish’s home cum store on Kanakpura Road and pick up some stuff from there. But make sure you give him a call at +91 9845027539 before you drop in. You can also find them at the occasional flea and exhibition in town.
