The pioneer of the quirk and kitsch movement in Pune, Either Or draws in loyal shoppers with constant innovation and new designers. Coasters, clutches and clocks from quirky designers Happily Unmarried and Chumbak rub shoulders with umbrellas and durries embroidered by Rajasthani artisans. Over the past year, the store has roped in NGOs like Avani ( they make products painted with natural dyes and paints) ) and Upasana ( a design studio from Auroville, which has a line of organic cotton garments). Look out for hand crafted wooden lamps, exquisite silver jewellery , a range of laptop and ipad cases made of silk and brocade and vibrant pottery by yesteryear actress Divya Rana. Another highlight is the rack that displays off- shoulder dresses and halter knit tops in traditional block prints.
