How often do you stumble upon the thought that you need small little jars and containers to store all your after-meal mouth fresheners (mukhwas), sauces and spices? Basically all little things that pack a punch. We often pride ourselves over our platters that house an assortment of mukhwas, especially after a heavy meal, and dessert. Also our little containers that have earthy, mellow feels but are home to flavour-packed pickles. Now here at LBB, we make scouting through a planet of containers and boxes, much easier and interesting. Read more to buy.

These don't have any ostentatious print or design, just a simple ripple structured brick coloured cover and a protruction to open the lid.
Kalamkaari Ceramic Pickle Jar
As ethnic and regional as it can get, Kohana Homes has these beautifully printed pickle jars that throw you back to the olden days. Then, earthenware was used aplenty to store all your spices and pickles. Here, in these ceramic jars, you get colourful floral prints with a lid opening that has the quintessential caramel brown paint on it. Best for pickles, these are sturdy and of a good build.
