Whether you belong to the region or wish to know and discover more about the Northeastern states, their culture, traditions and heritage, this store will offer you a glimpse into it through their food and accessories. They source all their products from local farmers and producers as well as NGOs, government and self help groups that support local farmers, weavers and producers.

Find a wide range of pickles, artisan chocolates, chutneys, bamboo shoots, spices, different kinds of tea and fermented soyabean. Chocolate person? You have to check out the absolutely crazy flavours they stock! Wild Apple, Roasted Pumpkin, Black Rice, Sesame Seed, Sumac (red dried berries from the hills of Ukhrul in Manipur) and, wait for it, King Chilli - yep! They've got a chilli flavoured chocolate also! The pickles (bamboo shoot, Bird's Eye chilli, pork, smoked beef, dry fish, chicken) also come highly recommended.

But if it's accessories that you're looking for, then their range of bags (slings, clutches, handbags, wallets, jholas) and handcrafted earrings made of bamboo are ideal options. The bags are made of cotton fibre, cotton wool, woven cane stripes, tan leather and paddy straw fibre. Redoing your bedroom or living space or work desk?
