If storage is an issue, hit up Gujarat Trunk Depot. We stumbled across the trunk shop selling sturdy and colourful trunks for prices as low as INR 550.
A shop that's deep in the depths of Crawford Market, Gujarat Trunk Depot has trunks in sizes starting from tiffin box-small to store-all-your-clothes big. The available shapes include both square and rectangle. These fabulous trunks are made of galvanised iron and have been powder-coated with different colours. The options are white, candy-floss pink, bright red, turqoise green, purple, black, cobalt blue, sky blue, sunflower yellow, orange, to name most.
We also spotted hand-painted trunks with olive green and pink floral patterns , the largest of which was for INR 850. In case less colour and more sober is your style, you can buy the unpainted boxes for a more industrial, sleek look.
Trunks like these, usually 10 times more expensive in other stores. They're great to use as home décor pieces and for stuffing all your junk in – socks, books, old magazines, less-used clothes, you know what we mean. We suggest buying a couple in different sizes and stacking them up in your bedroom or living area for a bright focal point in the room!
