What Makes It Awesome
Bags, cards, stationery, envelopes, boxes, potlis, Karmyog’s Russell Street outlet has every handmade paper home and gifting item you can think of. Walk into the store and be enveloped in warmth, vibrant colours and bright lights. The paper items are neatly stacked around the store and the staff is more than obliging to help you choose what you want buy.
Stationery lovers, they have the cutest paper items. We especially love their gifting bags, which come in all colours anad sizes. The simple single-coloured ones start at INR 40 whereas the bigger, printed ones can go up to INR 100. They even have envelopes for every occasion. The pretty detailed ones which come in sets of two start at INR 50 for the pack.
New mums. you have to check out their pastel baby collection which includes baby books!
Looking for something for the house? Karmyog has a couple of home-y items. The ones that stand out are their Christmas collection — still available in stores, you can pick it up and store it for next year. They come in reindeer and Christmas tree prints in classic Christmassy colours of red and white.
In general, their stock has quite a range. Most items are in solid colours but you’ll also get interesting floral and ethnic prints. The quirky prints — with musical instruments, hearts and even cupcakes — really stand out.
What’s awesome is that if you shop here, you are literally doing a good deed. You can win some major good karma because all the proceeds from the shop go towards lesser privileged women and children, assisting them through education and vocational training. The staff is extremely helpful and will provide you with all the information you need about the NGO.
