Ten Second Takeaway

A family-run business focusing on handcrafted textiles for the home, The Shop is where you can go to stock up on cushion covers, table linen, curtains, beddings, decorative items, ceramic crockery, soaps, and clothing.

Home is where the good linen is

The Shop comes out with two collections every year—one for spring and one for fall. We took a look at their Spring 2016 collection recently, and it is a beautiful mix of meadow and tropical inspired prints, with a little bit of indigo thrown in.

No matter what time of the year you pay them a visit, you’ll find lots of patchwork and nature-inspired prints in light and soothing shades; we’re especially biased towards their all-white hand embroidered applique curtains.

Take your pick from bedspreads, tablecloths, curtains, quilts, and cushion covers, which are either sourced from across India, {like Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal}, or are made by workers at their Noida workshop.

Clothe me up

SG9_2098There’s more to The Shop than just curtains and bedding, although you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise when you enter the store. And speaking of stores, the outlet at Regal Building in CP is probably one of our favourites in Delhi; the intricate wooden pillars and archway make the entry look no less than a small palace gateway—an absolute beauty.

You will find clothing for men, women, as well as children here—usually on the first floor. From cotton kurtas, palazzo pants, kantha jackets, dresses, and nightgowns, there’s quite a bit you can dig through.

Cups and kettles

SG9_2083We don’t know about you, but a big part of our tea and coffee drinking experience banks upon ceramics, of which The Shop has plenty. With glossy as well as rustic finishes, the earthenware here is simple and very easy on the eyes. They even have a range of incense sticks and soaps, all of which they source from Auroville, near Pondicherry.
