This Hauz Khas Store Is Perfect For Last-Minute Gift Shopping
Our go-to store for gifting items, Tatsat is bursting with an array of handicrafts and knick-knacks from different artisans across the country.
What Makes It Awesome
Chunky accessories, dainty silver jewellery, organic soaps and cosmetics, quirky stationery (there’s a whole range of Haathi Chaap paper products made of elephant excreta), saris, stoles, clutches, oil diffusers and a wide variety of home décor items.
Tatsat prides itself on being a socially conscious store and while it does house some mainstream brands, the bulk of their stuff comes from fair trade organisations, women residing in slums, weavers and various NGOs from across India. By providing a retail opportunity to remote artisans and weavers, Tatsat is also doing its bit towards empowering the not so well-off.
Bookmark Tatsat For last minute gift shopping – there’s something for everyone; From preset gift hampers, and cute bird earrings for teens, to silk saris and incense sticks (they have a coffee dhoop batti which can make your room smell divine), to home items such as lamps, trays, coasters, frames and platters. However, it’s equally useful for when you want to treat yourself to a piece of jewellery.
Price: Starting at INR 20 for a handmade bookmark, saris starting at INR 2,000, ceramics for INR 490.
What Could Be Better
At the moment, they only have a store in Hauz Khas. However, we wish they also had an online store for us lazy folks (they do have a website though where you can see some of their products but cannot order).
