Magical whimsies illustrated on products of routine use - why not? This brand is all that and definitely so much more. Based out of Bangalore and available across the country, Iktaara is the dream project of a masterful illustrator Kanika Gupta who is an alumnus of notable art schools.
Ancient mythical characters to cute animals, she works of many different kinds of engaging illustrations. Add a little spark to your rooms with Iktaara's absolutely fun cushion covers. Enchanting Celestial Trapeze, Jumping Jack, Houdini, Moon and more, their cushion covers are the right amount of quirky. We're also loving their "Phases Of Mrs Moon" coasters which make for great gifts too.
Life's too short to be eating out of simple (read: boring) plates. Iktaara's collection of dinner plates will take you back in time. We're talking Jumping Jack, Jumbo, Magical Pixies, Starry Deer and so many more, all on a plate. You can also shop for their uber-cool mugs with illustrations of goats, buffaloes and the likes.
Since masks have now become an inevitable part of our lives, folks at Iktaara have also launched printed face masks in subtle illustrations and designs. We especially love the beautiful blend of colours in the two-layered Lotus Bloom mask which is reusable and washable. There are a bunch of other products listed on their website which are worth checking out, don't wait up.
