Fashion designer Rachana Nagranee loves all things beautiful and believes that the simplest of designs are the most wonderful. Specialised in Handbags and home accessories, Rachana created Pitaara which is a collection of hand-crafted products inspired by the state of happiness. Each of the handbags and fashion accessories is so luxurious & indulgent, they seem almost sinful… I am sure you will love them.

Here are a few of the handcrafted bags and contemporary jewellery from Pitaara’s collection:

Bollywood Billboards to Beautiful Bags

with one comment

I believe in recycling and try to do my bit wherever possible. Recycling conserves resources, saves energy, helps protect the environment and reduces landfills….why wouldn’t you want to recycle?! It is only recently though that I came across the term Upcycling. Upcycling is using waste and converting it into something of better quality or value.

Initiated by designer Nupur Goenka ”Lets” is an eco-friendly company that saves dying objects and gives them a new life. Here are a few of their handmade, one-of-a-kind bags and laptop covers that are durable, water-resistant & easy to clean. 100% made of left overs the materials used to create these bags are plastic of old billboard signs and sarees & leather bits from factory wastes.

Easy like Sunday morning

Commodores singing ‘Easy’ in the background, the bit about ‘Easy like Sunday morning’ is what I am liking… As I was thinking about my next post, the Sun rose over the horizon and from our balcony I could see it taking on a yellowy hue. Very warm, very inspiring. I decided on my next post right at this moment…. here is a bit of sunshine your way
