What Is It?

Our country’s an incredible place for arts and culture, and Threads That Bind is an attempt at curating the best garments, accessories, home décor and crafts for those who like traditional stuff rendered in contemporary avatars.

The initiative will also contribute proceeds towards a good cause.

Who Is It For?

If you wear your Swadesi heart on your sleeve, you gotta check this out.

Also, if you’re looking to do up your home for Diwali or are into thoughtful gifts {for yourself and close peeps}, you’ll find awesome brands like Pure Ghee, Dhora, Jutti Choo, Fooljhadi, Akaaro, Shades Of India, Soutache, Nimai, Tokree and lots more.

Why Should I Go For It?

It offers Indian goodness {minus snake charmers and bumpy rickshaw rides} rolled into one – stoles, shawls, rugs, soft furnishings, apparel, stationery, footwear, accessories and even baby stuff. The idea is to promote our country’s art and crafts and weaves and textiles by the way of curating an urban mela.

So, basically think of it like a culture vulture’s very polished version of the Surajkund mela – oh-so-colourful and oh-so-pretty!

The exhibition’s also got diverse food tastes covered – coastal food, tea/coffee and Italian fare. You know what this means, right? Mister grumpy face has something of interest as you browse through blouses and baubles. Oh, and he can then check out buttons and cufflinks.

Anything Else?

Your shopping will bring happiness to people you don’t even know – the proceeds from the event will go to the Delhi Society For The Welfare of Special Children and All Creatures Great & Small, an animal shelter.
