I've always had a soft corner for traditional Jaipur prints. There's just something about the bright colours and nature-inspired patterns found in traditional block printing that I absolutely love. And when I discovered a lifestyle brand that's adding a contemporary spin on these traditional styles, you can bet I bookmarked it.
Founded by Siddhant Bansal, the brand's got deep roots in Jaipur and is the sister (and younger sibling) of a 25-year old home furnishing export business. Building on the family's familiarity with the lifestyle sector and updating it for the modern Indian home and life, Malkaa is about keeping it fresh with its witty prints and modern designs. Conceptualised by creative head, Sapna Bansal, these products are all about injecting your living space with a dose of happiness and a fun, youthful vibe. I spotted bold floral printed carpets for that bare spot on your living room floor (INR 799), pot holders to protect your hands in the kitchen (INR 189), a gorgeous blue calico printed throw (INR 1,229) and more. Siddhant tells us that the travel pouches, backpacks, and laptop covers are bestsellers from their product line.
If you travel often, then they've got travel accessories in cool prints that will make sure that your duffel stands out in a crowd - no boring blacks or browns here - rather backpacks, duffels and travel cases in peppy Jaipur prints. What's even better is that you won't need to shell out a ton to get your hands on their products. I spotted a printed pouch from INR 129 while a complete bedroom set would set me back between INR 3,035 to INR 8,599
