Handmade Soaps To Organic Baby Clothes: This Cooke Town Store Showcases Charming, Eco-Friendly Products
Housed in a quaint property in Cooke Town, 12/2 is an a conscious store that showcases everything from handmade soaps to organic clothing, handcrafted decor pieces and kitchen staples.
What Makes It Awesome
Just three weeks old, 12/2 is already a big draw with Cooke Town’s residents. Located right opposite ITC Infotech, the store has made its home in an old-world house. Once you step in, you can meander through rooms that display a host of products crafted by local NGOs, rural artisans, and organic and eco-friendly brands. We particularly loved their home decor and selection of knick knacks. There are photo frames bordered with wooden combs, bowls colourfully painted by Kashmiri artists, and stationery with Jaipur prints splashed all over them. Ikat bags, cloth toys from Kodaikanal, and trays with inlay work are the other star attractions. Do pick up their handmade soaps and deos that are made with unique ingredients like ragi!
The store also stocks organic, cotton clothes for the tiny tots and the adults. You can pick up kurtas, tops and even sarees here. Sterling silver jewellery pieces also find space. And on your way out, don't forget to stock up on pickles, kitchen essentials, and eco-friendly laundry solutions.
In a few weeks, they are planning to open out their sunny courtyard for customers to enjoy a cup of tea and sample goodies from local bakers in the neighbourhood.
