Ru & Chai

Show Off Your Pune Pride With Quirky Merch From This Online Store

What Makes It Awesome

Pune-based artist couple Chaitanya and Rucha Limaye work in traditional and digital media. So whether you’re looking for a painting or a quirky mug, they’ve got it all. Their online store, Ru & Chai (obviously derived from their names), which sells their illustrations on mugs, magnets, coasters, posters and what not showcases Pune and Marathi pride, sibling love and rivalry, punny play on words and more. But what we absolutely loved is their Pune pride merchandise. A ‘Pune Tithe Kay Une’ mug or a set of four coasters that speak Marathi. Whether you’re a proud Punekar or know one, these would be the cutest gifts, no? They even have punny designs with a cat purring ‘Me Yeu?’ and a dog saying ‘Bhau’. There’s other art up for purchase too. We wish we’d come across the Bhai-Behen mug and magnet combo earlier, but we’re definitely bookmarking it for next Raksha Bandhan. There also some bookmarks and posters of Logan, Baby Groot and Tyrion Lannister among others. All their products are shipped in six-to-seven days. You can check out their store here.

We’d love to see some of their paintings up for sale too.
