Kolam inspired lamps, cushion covers that take you to life by the sea and journals that remind of train journeys, Olie Crafts, the home décor label is much more than the functionality of its products. "Every collection has a story and comes with a little poem attached to it", says Amrita Nambiar, 30, Founder. The idea came to her on the idyllic streets of Pondicherry where she would walk around and draw for hours together. She began illustrating, hand printing and hand making lamps and called her label Olie, Tamil for light. Then came cushion covers and a gifting range that included storage boxes and journals. In her recent collection Railway launched in April, Nambiar explores the romance of train travel in the days of yore and translates them onto cushion covers, bags, journals and more. "Next in line is a bed and bath linen collection", she says.
