In our repeated attempt to live the good and clean life, UNIQLO has tied up with LBB for the Good Neighbourhood Guide, that brings you the best hidden gems from around your neighbourhood.
And for Uniqlo’s Ambience Mall (Gurgaon) launch, we’re putting the spotlight on an incredible local brand called Sirohi. Founded by Gauri Gopal Agrawal, Sirohi is a sustainable luxury brand that shines the spotlight on handcrafted products made using traditional Indian techniques. The distinct charpoy style of weaving features heavily in their products. The whole vibe is modern Indian, so expect pieces to fit into a contemporary home, but with the quintessential rural touch. Think bright yellow mini charpoys, rustic jute ones, and also spunky handwoven laptop tables and folding outdoor desks. There are even trays, bags and storage spaces.
We are currently in love with The Wave Monochrome Handwoven Bench that is perfect for a patio, or muted living room. There’s also an Aztec print stool perfect for a pop of yellow for corners. If your home has a rustic vibe, you need to get the hand-woven stools - either the jute ones or the multicoloured ones. Multifunctional is what we all need, and the The Light Box is just that. Woven in striking gold, jute, and black ropes, this box is a stool but also moonlights as a light. Use it to sit, keep things on, or just as a funky light when the sun sets. Go, be creative!
In addition to the brilliant products, the folks who make them are even more stellar. The brand supports over 100 women artisans who use their craftsmanship to bring you these gorgeous pieces while also utilising waste textile, plastic and natural fibres. So, really, you’re investing in women empowerment, sustainability and beautiful home decor.
