India Today - - SIMPLY PUNE -

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.
