South Kolkata’s hottest hood (Hindustan Park) just got a new décor and fashion studio that is about to rachet up its cool quotient. Here’s all you need to know about it.
This New Décor & Fashion Store Is Giving Us Major #StyleGoals
Crafts & Fine Arts
Thinking of doing up your casa with something unique and individualistic without shelling a bomb? Or looking for a label that makes sustainable fashion that is both stylish and singular in their form? Hit up UCOI.
A store styled like a studio and run by four architects, UCOI has a whole host of décor and artefact items to do up your crib and work spaces. You’ll be spoilt for choice to pick from home accents like brass bowls and candle stands, metal sculptures and figurines, marble and concrete clocks and coasters, wooden trays and many such.
Their hanging lights are as beautiful as their black pottery artefacts. But what we liked best are the digital artwork series of city artist Reya Ahmed.
Look out for the unique furniture that are made by one of the architect owners, Subi Sumon.
If you don’t already know this, then let us tell you that fashion is the second largest polluter of our environment after oil. Cotton or not, but fashion’s carbon footing is enormous; and the best way to reduce this is to buy upcycled or organic products.
UCOI has cool and kitschy organic and upcycled fashion that are not only singular in their looks but also stylish enough to keep you trendy. From upcycled bags to stoles and sarees the store has a good collection of products made by designer Paromita Banerjee.
The store is open from 11 am to 8 pm (except on Mondays) and will stock up on artefacts and artworks that are all priced between INR 500 to INR 25,000.
