Allow us to introduce you to Chungi Store; an e-store to come on our radar for quirky stuff. It stocks coffee mugs, stoles and scarves, sarees, home decor, T-shirts for men and a whole selection of discounted merch that might interest you.
The platform is trying to provide a counter-point to the uniformity and crazy-level efficiency that’s become synonymous with factory-made goods. In its effort to revive old art forms such as madhubani, crochet or kantha, it’s employing women who are skilled in these and looking for means to a more financially fulfilling livelihood.
This idea obviously makes us want to come out in full support. After a good amount of time spent browsing, we decided that we loved the cushion covers the most. Throw them in your reading corner or surround yourself with them as you drink soup in bed, but don’t tell us you can’t accommodate a few of them extra (good-looking) ones in your space.
The fact that they’re made from chanderi-silk makes them look festive as well.
Price: Starting at INR 500
