India Today - - SIMPLY CHENNAI -

Mi­tal Surendira’s bou­tique, Sanskrriti, started as a sim­ple ex­ten­sion of her cre­ative in­stincts al­most ten years ago and has now grown to cater to an im­por­tant clien­tele in­clud­ing film per­son­al­i­ties and in­dus­tri­al­ists. San­skriti thrives on the idea that our cel­e­bra­tions— be it wed­dings, fes­ti­vals or baby an­nounce­ments - are full of pomp and splen­dour.

And so, here you’ll find gifts rang­ing from the small­est of items, like dec­o­rated sweet boxes to or­nate thalis and fancy cus­tom­made in­vi­ta­tions. For baby an­nounce­ments, cute cra­dles made with a palm leaf base and dec­o­rated with lace are avail­able.

You can ask for off- beat in­vi­ta­tions like a baby book and matki- shaped sweet con­tain­ers for func­tions. Ban­gle boxes come in many in­no­va­tive va­ri­eties here – from small, palm- sized ones to big­ger, elab­o­rate boxes. These are made with a wooden base, cov­ered in rich raw silk or syn­thetic raw silk. Their bro­cade de­signs and un­con­ven­tional colour com­bi­na­tions are a big hit.

Mi­tal’s lat­est cre­ation is a set of colourful ran­go­lis. Made out of wood, stones and beads, these ran­goli pieces come in shapes of diyas and mango mo­tifs, and are avail­able in a range of sizes. Also check out the large bag col­lec­tion— from sim­ple dec­o­rated pa­per bags to beau­ti­ful potli bags in silk and bro­cade.
