This week we set out in search of our own trails. In a way we rediscovered food and textile like we had never before. So scroll into our lives here at LBBD and let us know what you have been up to this week as well!

Merry at the mela | We went to the DCWA mela! This is at the German stall which gave us a glimpse of their cuisine, right here in Delhi.

Shawl brawls | Over the week, we caught up with a “shawl connoisseur” and learned the most fascinating things about textiles, textures, embroidery et. all that go into creating one of these wonders. And yes, we’re telling you all about it in the coming week!

A new beginning | We bid our very first office farewell yesterday. This two room space witnessed some of the most interesting discussions, conversations with a bunch of brilliant people, and offered us a space to build the blocks for LBBD. We’re kicked about the next spot we take- but this one’s always going to be super special for each and everyone from the LBBD crew! Adieu!
