We constantly work and fight our way to be different from everybody else. Do things that others don’t do. Find our niche. This often reflects in things that we have, possess and would like to show off. A unique painting on the living room wall or the statement sari at a friend’s cocktail party or one of its kind hosted theme party. We all want to be, do, want “Zara Hatke”
Off late I came across these few young entrepreneurs who dared to think out of the box, who are attempting at giving us that “Zara Hatke” thing.
In the order I came across them:-
My source of knowing them: A boutique store in Bangalore.
What I liked about them: They are the oldest of the lot. Very innovative! Love some of their kinky stuff like the Mother-in-law dice, Very Hard Disk Covers, Beware of wife – Doormat, 1-2 cha cha cha mugs, Sandaas –Ashtray.
My source of knowing them: They are all over the town.
What I liked about them: They have these lovely Indian animated motif oriented designs on their stuff like the Autowala , Muchhis of India, Sari clad sexy lady, snake charmers etc. Their stuffs to check out are keychains, zipper pulls, bookmarks, luggage tags, passport holders, fridge magnets and anymore. Special mention of the tin candy or cookie boxes and mad madhubani playing cards. They not only very good looking but practical to store a lot of stuff.
My source of knowing them: Through a friend. And I visited them.
What I liked about them: Basically they source a lot of this quirky stuff (Happily Unmarried and Chumbak) and sell at their store. Not sure if they sell their own stuff too. It’s a very cute store on an attic above a spectacle store in Mumbai. Very true to its tag line “We don’t have anything you need, but you will want everything we have ”
My source of knowing them: Facebook share from a friend.
What I liked about them: They have 2 categories Fashion and Lifestyle. What sets them apart is their Fashion section. Like name like fashion – Quirky!!! Jackets, dresses, tees, boxer shorts, shoes, pants, bags, scarves and more. I love their scarves.
My source of knowing them: Facebook ads.
What I liked about them: This is newest among the lot I came across. I quiet like their intro page which screams “Filmy”. They basically make accessories, stationery, lifestyle and home decors. Their laptop cover are different from the other laptop sleeves as comes with a handle and it can be carried a bag itself. I particularly like their design ‘Shocked’, which is gush of rich vibrant colors.
