    What Makes It Awesome

    Kolkata start-up Papercup is selling the quirkiest home décor, trendiest fashion accessories and cutest stationery and spreading all kinds of happiness.

    Love to mix your desi vibe with a fusion of western trends? Papercup does exactly that. Chief Happiness Officer, Somrwita Guha’s idea was to make quirky Bangali stuff that will make homes and workspaces very happy! We love the merch which make for the perfect souvenirs from the City of Joy. We can’t get over how intricate and detailed the products are and how much thought and effort goes into them – whether it’s the handpainted kettles or the quilled bookmark sets.

    They’re fully stocked with coffee mugs, table lamps, candles, wall arts, coffee coasters, notebooks and bookmarks. And they have a special collection of rakhis and sibling-friendly gifts. There’s something for every budget here – from INR 55 for simple greeting cards to INR 2,500 for exclusive leather bags. What’s awesome is that most of their handmade products are made by young girls and women from North Calcutta slums, empowering them to stand on their own feet.

    So go ahead and pick up something from the happiest start-up ever.
