    What Is It?

    Haven’t we all hunted around for that one quirky piece of home décor or art that makes a statement and adds to the charm of that corner at home?

    Bottle Strokes, an upcycling brand, was started with the aim of reviving old and discarded bottles and showcasing them as utilitarian art. Started by Shruthi Shanker, a psychologist by profession who got into upcycling and art, their handmade products are customised and one-of-a-kind, adding that whimsical element to our everyday items. Their essence lies in hand painting realistic and representative art from across the country; playing with India’s art and culture and trying to do justice to its rich heritage.

    How Does It Work?

    Every bottle, mug, tawa or kettle undergoes an elaborate process of cleaning and drying before they begin painting on it. This process helps keep the paint intact for years unless it is scrubbed or mishandled.

    What To Buy

    Their designs are ethnic and quirky, with artwork that makes you reminisce good ‘ol India. You’ll also find patterns that are women-centric and emphasise on the strength of a woman.

    Their products range from tea glasses, kettles, beer mugs, bottles, shot glasses, water bottles, steelware and more. Their price range is from INR 450 to INR 3,500.

    Anything Else?

    The brand believes in upcycling old products with an aim to also train women from underprivileged backgrounds in the concept of art, giving them a platform to showcase their talents and earn a living through art. So inspiring, enough to make us want to help their cause by buying some gorgeous pieces from them.
