CHEM­I­CAL LOCHA

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNE -

USP Ouirky and in­no­va­tive prod­ucts by brands like Wear Your Opin­ion and Big Bag The­ory

It prob­a­bly houses the same de­signer names as sev­eral other stores in the city that sell kitsch prod­ucts but the sheer en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm of the owner Pooja Mayee makes the ex­pe­ri­ence of shop­ping here fan­tas­tic. “Chem­i­cal Locha”, she says, “is the chem­i­cal mad­ness and adrenalin rush that takes place when you see some­thing cool”. And the store en­sures that you do feel that rush of blood to the head. There are ash­trays by Hap­pily Un­mar­ried, bot­tle stop­pers by Mukul Goyal, funky biker key­chains and bags by Mum­bai- based brand Chum­bak, The Big Bag The­ory’s mouse pads, hip flasks with hip­pie prints and tote bags in at­trac­tive de­signs. You can also find clothes by Sheep­stop, Wear Your Opin­ion’s tees with in­ter­est­ing di­a­logues from Hindi movies writ­ten on them, can­dles in shot glasses and ce­ramic bowls by Tarana. While the first kiosk opened in March at Amanora Mall, a larger space with more va­ri­ety has just opened shop at Kore­gaon Park.
