Olie Crafts

India Today - - COVER STORY -

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.
