We Just Found Handicrafts Heaven In Chennai And It's Right Here In Egmore
What Makes It Awesome
Sitting right on Pantheon Road, Kamala Crafts Shop is a handicraft paradise you must visit. Run by The Crafts Council of India, this store houses an alluring mix of home and fashion accessories, all sourced from artisans across the country. Whether you're looking to buy gifts, do up your den or embrace handicraft into your wardrobe, this place is sure to please you with its extensive and intricately designed merch.
Indigo has become our favourite colour now, all thanks to the latest summer collection Kamala Crafts Shop is currently showcasing. From Indigo coloured jewellery boxes and bags to cushion covers and crockery with Indigo floral detailing, this colour is totally rocking the scene here. We also found beautiful lamps shades, silk mats, wooden collectables, vases and handpainted clay idols of Ganesha here.
Kamala Crafts Shop also has enticing sarees and bedspreads. The Ajrakh one is our fave. We also discovered paper mache birds, bagh cushions and lovely coasters at this store. Their Shibori sarees are particularly vibrant and you can mix and match them with other running fabrics featuring some intricate prints and geometric designs. Their block print stoles and ceramic chimes are also worth checking out. Basically, whatever intention you may have come in with, you're sure to take back more with you along with true appreciation for the diversity and the beauty of Indian handicrafts.
The store also hosts a lot of lifestyle exhibits where you can score some fabulous finds.
