India-based Fiona Caulfield’s Love Travel Guides celebrates a decade of publishing next year and new to the mix is the first volume in a series devoted to the artisans, designers and specialist shopkeepers of key Indian cities. Made in Kolkata, printed on non-bleached and hand-hewn paper, has a naturally dyed indigo cover, handmade bookmarks with tiny tassels and a supplementary stitched-in note book covered in hand-loomed Bengali checks to record your shopping finds. Caulfield is already working on a follow-up title, Made in Bengalaru, due for release in February. The series, which supplements earlier city guides to destinations such as Mumbai and Goa, is squarely aimed at savvy buyers and design junkies. In Kolkata, the hunt is on for vintage textiles, sari silks, crafted jewellery or sustenance in the form of tins of cottage cheese dumplings dipped in sugary syrup. Head to Indian Silk House for lightweight quilts and shawls with hand-stuffed cotton fillings scented with vetiver essential oil. Caulfield also suggests where to explore, dine and stay, including the muchanticipated nine-suite Glenburn Penthouse with rooftop terrace and infinity pool overlooking Kolkata’s historic Victoria Memorial.
