If the handmade paper had a heavenly sanctuary, it would be at Chimanlal’s in Fort. Existing for the past six decades, paper addicts swear by Chimanlal’s in SoBo. There’s a whole section for DIY boxes of all shapes, sizes and prints, gift bags and tags, little notebooks and diaries at the shop.
Filter Shop, Fort
This quirky store in SoBo is for anyone who likes to keep it real and are fans of minimalism. There are sarcastic cards, badges that have Shakespearean insults on them and other bits that you would absolutely love. We picked up a pencil that had Sylvia Plath’s name on it and have kept it safely tucked away. It’s a little on the higher side of the pricing spectrum (starts at INR 600), so go when you’re loaded.
