India Today - - SIMPLY MUMBAI -

Es­tab­lished al­most 50 years ago, Con­tem­po­rary Arts and Crafts ( CAC) is con­sid­ered to be Mum­bai’s iconic shop for eth­nic and classy home dé­cor and ac­ces­sory prod­ucts.

The store re­opened ear­lier this year at a new lo­ca­tion in a new avatar.

Tra­di­tional de­signs meet con­tem­po­rary ones at this 3000 sq ft store, which stocks prod­ucts to suit the tastes of the mod­ern Mum­baikar.

From Ra­jasthan to Ma­ha­rash­tra and Ker­ala to Orissa, CAC has a wide range of prod­ucts from all across the coun­try. Among some of the highly aes­thetic of­fer­ings here are framed Gond paint­ings, papier- mâché toys from Orissa, and jig­saw puz­zles with Pat­ta­chi­tra, Mad­hubani and Kalamkari pat­terns from Pondicherry.

Ex­plore the quirky side of the store with prod­ucts like jalebi kad­hais made into funky wall hang­ings, cat- shaped fig­urines, horse- shaped be­tel nut cut­ters, a brass cha­p­ati box, frog- shaped lamp hold­ers and hen- shaped wa­ter­ing cans.
