The lane behind Shivaji Market is perpetually bustling with shoppers trying to get the best deal out of everything under the sun. From groceries to cutlery, quaint eateries, flower vendors and more, the area between Babajan Chowk and Shivaji Market is a treasure trove full of awesome. One of the hidden gems out here is Golden Touch, a hole-in-the-wall establishment, {we found almost accidentally} that houses the prettiest collection of laces, borders, latkans and patches at reasonable prices.

Tell Me More

Run by Sameer Sayyad, Golden Touch is a makeshift, kiosk-like shop, right opposite fruits vendors who sit near the back entrance of Shivaji Market, Camp. As you can see from the photographs, the store has no board or sign whatsoever. But what we hear is Sameer is quite popular among the locals in the area and most of them {including the autowalas} know him. We recommend you ask anyone about his shop, and you will be guided accordingly.

Golden Touch is a one-stop-destination for embellishments; from floral and feather laces to ornamental latkans, scalloped borders, golden zaris with stones, multi-colour Rajasthani borders with intricate mirror-work, ethnic patches and jazzy ribbons with decorative bells, the place has the quirkiest of things you need for a wardrobe makeover or upcoming wedding.

While the simplest of borders start at INR 20 per metre, the heavily embroidered ones can cost anywhere between INR 150 and INR 400 per metre. If you’re not a big fan of loud and bright fashion, use the beautiful patches on your cushions, lamps or upholstery to add some peppiness in your home. These are priced at INR 50 per piece. Additionally, you can also check out their collection of cut pieces and matching dupattas, starting as low as INR 200.

Anything Else?
