Cel­e­brate colour

By­loom has made its name with their ex­clu­sive vi­brant six- yard weaves pop­u­larised by the Tol­ly­wood’s lead­ing ladies from Moon Moon Sen to Aparna Sen to even Son­akshi Sinha in

Lootera. But as delightful as their saris are their tiny home sec­tion is of­ten over­looked. Pick silk Kan­thas, or ikkat bed spreads in bright colours, soft Turk­ish tow­els that are said to be won­der­fully ab­sorbent yet thin enough to dry fast this sea­son of rains is owner Mal­abika Ban­er­jee’s top pick. An­other must pick is the nat­u­ral “soap pow­der” they stock along with a se­lec­tion of her­bal prod­ucts from amla to nat­u­ral colour crayons. Place mats and nap­kins made of gam­cha and colour­ful cloths are bright buys. Can’t make your own bon­sai? Well you can al­ways pick up a few of th­ese mini plants with cute wooden han­dles. In an­other sec­tion near the billing counter are kitschy bright ket­tles and can­dle hold­ers shaped like old hur­ri­cane lamps.

At By­loom, Hin­dus­tan Park
