Ten-Second Takeaway

In the heart of the charming fishing village of Chimbai is a clothing store On My Own with the most interesting Indo-western clothes, paper jewellery and men’s ikat shirts you should take a look at it.

What To Buy

This pretty store by designer Arti Shantakumar opened in Chimbai village soon after it shut shop in its other Bandra outlet, and has been delighting unsuspecting {and deliberate} customers equally since then.


When we walked in, we loved the sprawling women’s collection, textiles of all kinds hanging neatly from the bars. They have everything from a cute olive green spaghetti top, affordable pants, ikat shrugs {for INR 2,500}, and loosely-shaped dresses for a casual outfit. They also design some unusual patchwork blouses that we would gladly pair with any single-tone sari.


Apart from the clothes which are mostly all designed by Arti herself, the accessories. We totally recommend the canvas brogue shoes with an Indian touch and bright cloth jewellery with beadwork. The price range begins at around INR 700-800 for the clothing items here.

What About The Men?

Nothing to worry about men’s collection when you come here. Lots of linen wear, interesting combination of block textiles and plain fabrics and even ikat shirts and vests for Indian occasions can be found here.

So, We’re Saying…


Going here, you’d without a doubt find something unique that will become your go-to statement piece.
