Ten-Second Takeaway

Remade In India, a tiny new store on Indiranagar’s CMH Road, stocks everything from funky espadrilles to hip stationery, but  everything is upcycled and made from scrap literally.

Stationery Love

There is nothing really about the ambience, the store lets its products speak for itself. We were straight drawn to the shelves that stock beautiful stationery — notebooks in packs of three and five {small and large in size}, colourful planners {from Studio ABCD} and doodle books. Closer inspection will reveal that while some of the covers are made from tyres, some are made from commercial containers {think boxes used for retail}. We even found a notebook, whose cover was made out of an old vinyl. We were also sold with Studio ABCD’s lovely idea of using traditional and colourful block printing techniques on regular newspaper to create gift wrapping paper {called the Second Life}.

Baubles And More

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Earrings made from bottle caps, espadrilles {for the ladies} made out of Kalamkari fabric, with their soles shaped out of old tyres, were other highlights. Mumbai-based Chindi’s funky sling bags, yoga mat straps and shopping bags {made out of fabric scraps} also caught our attention.

So, We’re Thinking…

All products sold at the Remade In India store are finished very beautifully and don’t look like somebody’s idea of a D-I-Y project. We are especially in love with the stationery section and are going back to stock up on the funny notebooks soon.

Price: INR 200 upwards
