Chennai makkal! You can now truly declare your affinity for Madras with quirky, themed accessories from the Madras Merch Market. An online store, the line up of products here will make you want to flaunt your Madras fever or at least bring a smile to your face. Hoodies, mugs, tees, badges - they have a bunch of accessories, all carrying catchy phrases and quirky typography that will resonate with your love for all things Madras.
Their 'Straight Outta Kutcheri' tee is what caught our attention, leading us to a range of other products designed around the city's love for Carnatic music. In collaboration with Memes Melakartha, Madras Merch Market has come up with a whole range of goodies with fun wordplay like 'RTP and Chill' and 'Alexa, Play Mangalam' printed on phone cases, pop grips, badges, and tees. Our favourite are the badges that start from just INR 69.
You can also find phrases like 'Concert is a word, Kutcheri is an emotion', 'Keep calm and learn Carnatic Music', 'Straight Outta Paatu Class', 'Rasika Mode Loading' and 'Aspiring Musician' printed across black and white mugs, tees, notebooks and pop grips. We particularly loved their mridangam-shaped pop grip and their phone cases that come in hues of powder blue, black, white, red, mint green and more. Madras Merch Market also has mandala art designs, Bharatnatyam, 'Eat, Sleep, Practise, Repeat' and 'My Happy Place' and more printed onto their notebooks and tees. Prices for notebooks start from INR 249.
