Hi Dear Enthusiast!

The exhibition is organised by Karnataka Khadi and Village Industries Board.

Textiles and home furnishings in the Khadi Utsav

  • A basic spinning and weaving demo which is useful for common man to understand the concept.
  • Around hundred traditional textiles stalls from all over India. Genuine traditional textiles directly from the makers (registered organisations) and reasonable pricing for the workmanship. It is a place where each rupee we pay reaches the makers. And each rupee we spend is worth it. The textile and design lover within me is satisfied by the quality and quantity of the textiles for the offered price.
  • We can find awesome collection of Ilkal (Karnataka), Kasuti (Karnataka), Kalamkari (Andhra Pradesh), Bandhni (Gujarat), Ikkat (Odisha), Kashida (Kashmir), Phulkari (Punjab), Chikankari (Uttar Pradesh), Batik, various traditional hand embroidery textiles and many more. No idea about the textiles? Ask the sales assistants for the details of the textiles, you will get the information.

Ikkat, brock printing, weaving designs, batik, phulkari, chikankari, kalamkari and other traditional textiles photos from Khadi Utsav 2017

  • What to find for females? Saris, Blouses, Salwar Kameezes, Kurtas, Kurtis, Vests, dress materials, Dupattas, shawls, bags… What else?
  • Men too have a wide range of Kurtas, waistcoats, Paijamas, Shirts, shirt pieces, Shawls, Bags, etc.
  • There are very cute kids’ ranges. Look for the stalls with kids sections and find skirt and blouse sets, salwar kameezes, frocks, Kurta paijama sets, desi shirts and also, custom dress materials.

Some kids', women's and men's traditional wear collections from Khadi Utsav 2017

  • Kerchiefs, towels of different sizes, jamkhanas, bed sheets, bed spreads, rajais (quilts), mats, wall hangings, pillow cases… Whatever is needed for furnishing home, it is available in the exhibition.
  • Wooden and earthen handicrafts anyone loves to possess. Chennapatna wooden toys are the notable ones among the toys section. Some jewely stalls are present. Footwear section is also impressive.

What else to know about the Khadi Utsav?

  • Easy to locate venue. Sign boards direct the visitors to the venue hassle freely.
  • A nominal entry fee of INR10 per individual is charged. Photography is allowed.
  • Exhibition spread in a spacious place in the park.
  • Beware! We cannot judge the number of the stalls from the entrance. Around 100 stalls are arranged in a hair pin curve manner. So, take a quick look of all the stalls first and then shop where you wish to.
  • Very well organised stalls section. We went on a busy Sunday but yet there were no traffic jams in the exhibition area.
  • Sales assistants are very friendly. They are generous with photographers. You can chat with them and ask the details of the textiles they make.
  • Some sellers accept cards. Some do not. So, shopping has to be planned accordingly.
  • Fans kept at different places let the visitors relax in between.
  • Home-made food counters appear here and there to satisfy the visitors’ tummy while shopping.
  • Food counters near the exit offer variety of good foods at sensible prices.

My Views

The Khadi Utsav 2017 is a well organised traditional textile exhibition. Everyone who likes to dress up can get something for their taste. A must visit for textile lovers. Brand lovers who pay a huge amount on the brands can blindly pay for these local brands. The money spent reaches the hard workers and will support the cottage industries.

So, dear Bengalurian, are you still thinking? Why don’t you just pay a visit and check? Buy if you like.  Come on! 5 more days left! Support the traditional textile makers. Dear Reader, please share your feedback if you have already visited. Let’s spread the goodness!

Bye until next post! TC and keep smiling 🙂

Note:

  • The exhibition visit was purely personal and views are my own.
  • I could photograph little and share fewer in the post. You can sight more exciting textiles in the exhibition.

Thanks so much! What can I give you back? The projects! And many things to share! One of the loved projects is before you, my Little Wonder’s Little Frock.

Little Wonder’s Little Frock

Little Wonder’s Little Frock is a yoked frock. It is beautified with pleated cap sleeves and a centre bow in contrast fabric. The frock is made using two brocade fabrics. I have used golden brocade (shell) and multi-colour striped deep red brocade fabric (embellishment). A matching absorbent lining is carefully chosen to comfort the baby. I have used hook and eye fastening at shoulders and at one of the side seams. This frock is designed to wear for a religious ceremony.

And she is my Little Wonder wearing her little frock..

I had been to a Textile exhibition on 1st March, 2015 in Bengaluru. I was happy to find a good collection of handloom cotton shirts, Bengali cotton/silk saris, brocades, Chikankari suits/saris by sellers from various parts of India. They were traditional yet very fashionable. The price range was very reasonable. Below are some photographs clicked at Bharatiya Craftmela, enjoy!

First National Handloom Day

 Happy First Handloom DayCelebration of the First Handloom Day and launch of India handloom Brand in India on 7th of August, 2015 by the PM of India Shri Narendra Modi at Chennai is a significant event aspiring development in the relaunch of Indian traditional textiles and in the world of textiles.

Ancient Bharatiyas were the masters of life having great knowledge about everything from adhyatma (spirituality) to the aesthetics. It is not unknown that the world looked at India for its finest quality textiles and spices, and that India was invaded for the same for several hundred years. Hence probably ‘Swadeshi Movement‘ was developed by the freedom fighters like Dadabhai Naoroji, Gokhale, Ranade, Balagangadhara Tilak and G.V. Joshi uniting common Indians. Later, the Swadeshi thought was shaped and Swadeshi Andolan was launched by M.K Gandhi on 7th August 1905.

Today, on completion of 110 years of Swadeshi Andolan by M.K Gandhi, we are celebrating the first National Handloom Day. Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched “India Handloom” brand at a mega event in Chennai on this historical day. The celebration was special as ‘Santh Kabir Award’ and ‘National Award for Handloom Weavers’ were given to the deserving weavers. There was an informative exhibition of traditional Indian textiles from all over India. I was happy that I knew a few names among them. PM gave a message to the fellow citizens to buy more handloom textiles while addressed the gathering and also said that a boost to handloom industry will strengthen the weavers economically. He also stressed that handloom textiles must also look into the matters like design updating and becoming more fashionable.

Former president of India, Dr. Abdul Kalam, who left us recently had always encouraged us to dare to dream. I have such a dream, to travel across India and to know every traditional Indian textile. I know, it will take my lifetime to to this as there are hundreds of them. But, dreaming is not a sin!

May Indian traditional textiles and handloom industry prosper. May this be true for all the traditional textiles all over the world. Singing off wishing you all a Happy handloom Day!

Shopping @ LimeRoad.com : A Review

A review of my shopping experience with LimeRoad.com, a flagship store for women.

Namaste Dear Tantu Enthusiast!

It’s been a long since I updated anything. How are you? How are you enjoying summer? Well, I am busy gulping the seasonal local fruits 😀 as we have come to the end of the season in this part of the world expecting monsoon in no time…

Online shopping is the trend of the day that makes our lives easy providing exciting shopping experiences. Internet is flooded with many online shopping sites and new shopping sites show up every day. But, not every site upholds the customer expectations. One such trending and promising online shopping site is LimeRoad.com. I recently did a trial shopping with LimeRoad and today’s post is a review of my shopping experience with the same.

What is LimeRoad.com?

LimeRoad.com LogoLimeRoad.com is a Flagship store for women launched on 18th October 2012 that is based in Gurgaon, Haryana, India. LimeRoad offers wide range of rare fashion products for women from head to toe including ethnic to western looks. LimeRoad also provides home and kitchen products. One can imagine the popularity that LimeRoad has gained by looking at the love of over 9.5 million fans in Facebook within a duration of 2 ½ years.

My Shopping experience with LimeRoad.com

They say, ‘How you deal with smallest things defines what actually you are’. I tried the same with LimeRoad.com and I went for the lowest price range. I bought three products in the first round. Every category showed up interesting style collections. I went for a pair of printed leggings, a printed dupatta and a canvas sling bag.

Blue printed cotton knit leggings by 27ashwood

Having a glance of clothing category in LimeRoad is a visual treat. The collections are distinctive from ethnic to modern, from solids to prints and from high to budget. I decided to go for a pair of printed leggings. A pair of ash blue leggings with awesome print in white is what I chose. Guess what? The random all over print is of thread spools, buttons, shirts, bows, socks and many more beautiful motifs… How could I have not picked it???

Ash Blue Printed Leggings @ LimeRoad I read the description, care and other details in the page. Satisfied with the details and the pictures, I grabbed that cute sewer’s leggings of MRP 449 INR.

The leggings arrived home through courier within 3 days. Everything was fine but the first look at the print cautioned me about losing the print in one wash. I washed it by hand, even rubbed it. But, the print is still stable 🙂

I am so happy… I love my cute sewer’s leggings 🙂

Plush Orange Printed Dupatta By Ethnic

I was stunned looking at the beautiful dupatta collection at LimeRoad. I wanted to buy many of them. But for the trial shopping, I finalised a multi coloured floral printed crush cotton dupatta of MRP 187 INR.

Dupatta also came within 3 days of ordering. You know what? I fell in love with the richness of the colours it has. The cotton material is absorbent and feels comfortable against skin.

Dupatta is quite long than I thought. It reaches my calf muscles (!) when I wear it on one side of my shoulder and I am 5’4”tall. I have washed it and the colours have not bleeded! That’s so much one can expect for the price 187 INR!!!

Floral Finesse Printed Bag by Crafts My Dream

There are chic bags of different kinds for different occasions. I picked a sling bag of canvas material with pink-orange-black large floral print with a black handle. It costs only 300 INR!

The bag came in 3 days as well. The dimensions were as mentioned and the specifications were also matching the product description given in the site. It had a zipper pocket and two side by side no fastener pockets in the inside, as mentioned. The handle is of a faux leather material with braided backing. The print quality is excellent.

‘Whoa! Where are we planning to go this weekend??’, what else can be my expression!

Features to note in LimeRoad

  1. The vast variety collection of exceptionally unique products what LimeRoad exhibits is of course what I like the most. There is everything for everyone and I mean it! Anything in traditional to modern style of grand wedding wears, elegant party wears, cool casuals, pretty night dresses, beautiful beach wears, sexy lingerie… Do you want to accessories them? LimeRoad helps you to accessorise with jewellery, watches, bags, foot wears, scarves, stoles, head gears, beauty products of all the kinds to suit your taste. What else you want? Do you want to buy a new gadget like mobile or laptop? LimeRoad has them too. Even you will find a great collection of ‘home and kitchen’ products to decorate your home as you wish.
  2. LimeRoad provides all these products in a wide price range from budget to high end.
  3. There is always something hot in LimeRoad. I love checking every now and then the ‘rush hour’ and the ‘sale’ categories to see the great deals of discount.
  4. ‘Love’ option: It is an amazing option to save and watch a product later. You can also check the popularity of the product by looking at the love count it has gained. It helps to finalise a product out of a bunch of products you like. This option also helps to check if the products you are watching come up with any discounts.
  5. There is an exciting style council in which we can find styling ideas created by top models/actors like Neha Dhupia and many awesome fashion designers and fashion bloggers. We can follow them, like and buy the stunning looks created by them. Being a designer, I love to create looks on LimeRoad. One can earn LR credits that can be used in getting shopping discounts by creating their own looks and sharing the same. Wow! That means we can earn while shopping!
  6. Detailed product descriptions are given by most of the sellers. It is very easy to shop through LimeRoad as the products are given all the required details about the material, dimensions and enough good resolution photographs in all the possible angles as well as close-ups. It gives a feeling of shopping directly in the showroom itself.
  7. Shipment and packaging: LimeRoad ships the products to all the places within India by courier or in certain cases by speed post services. Estimated delivery time will be as mentioned in the product description page that varies from 3-15 days depending upon thelocationto be shipped. My products werecouriered and I have received all my products superfast within 3 days after ordering them. My products were intact and packed firm in sealed plastic bags.   Free shipping is available for all orders aboveINR300. That’s cool!

  8. Payment options: Credit Card (Visa/ Amex/ Master Card), Debit Card (All leading bank debit cards), Netbanking (All leading banks) and one can also opt for the Cash-on-Delivery (COD). But, point to note, all the CODs are charged with an extra of 79 INR.
  9. Track orders: As in every online shopping venture, there will be an order tracking page in your LimeRoad account too. The order status gets updated as it gets shipped and delivered or cancelled.
  10. Return policy: While purchasing something from Limeroad, you will get to know the information about return policy. If the product cannot be returned/exchanged you can find it written in the product page itself.
  11. LimeRoad Mobile App: One can use LimeRoad mobile app to shop on the go.

Limitations of my LimeRoad Shopping Review

  1. I have ordered only clothing/materials made of fabrics.
  2. I have not cancelled any of my orders.
  3. I have not exchanged or returned any product.
  4. I have not tried LimeRoad Mobile app enough to comment on that.
  5. I have not checked how LimeRoad responses to the customer queries.

LimeRoad’s Scoreboard:

Criteria Score Explanation/expectation
Product range 4/5 Very good range.Men’s and kid’s sections expected to be opened soon!
Product quality/seller’s score 4/5 Quality of the received goods are very good. All of them are as photographed and described.
Shipment 4/5 Excellent. Quite fast.
Packing 3.5/5 Good. As described. Packing is simple and it could be better even though none of the products were damaged nor in bad condition due to packing.

It was an amazing experience to shop with LimeRoad.com. If you are planning to buy clothing/related online, then I would definitely suggest you to try LimeRoad.com and I am sure it will not disappoint you 🙂

Take care! Bye until the next post!

What I Do To My Hair…

Namaste Dear Tantu Enthusiast,

How are you? Thank you so much for your kind words… I am back to blogging activities as before and would reply you all soon!

This happened recently when we had been to Ellora and Ajintha. I was standing combing my hair in front of the mirror in our hotel room. I was surprised to see my hair! It was reaching near my knees! Whenever I see ladies with long hair, I admire them. But, that was a moment of mixture of different feelings to see myself with really long hair!

What I Do To My Long HairIn past three years, after I left teaching, high bun has been my hairstyle except when I go out. So, I am always as free as I if have very short hair. Busy with my arts and crafts and my blogs, I hardly observe my hair. But, at a different place having nothing much to do, it happened to notice the length of my hair. What a moment it was! Literally I was watching it from left and right like I used to do with hair extensions in my childhood 😀

Then I thought that I must write something about what I do with my hair and the post is here.

My Hair – Facts

I have black silky and wavy hair that is just like that of my Amma’s hair. I used to have a bob cut till my high school. Later, I allowed it to grow even though I have been trimming my hair (about 5 inch) every year. Almost for last three years, trimming length was reduced to 1 inch. Today my hair is very long that is just 2 inches above my knees.

Heredity Matters

My Amma, maternal aunts and paternal aunts had thick and long hair till their late 30s. One of my paternal aunts had knee-length hair in her 20s. My grannies also had long hair. My elder sister also had hip length hair (even after trimming it every year) till her teenage. She started losing hair after she suffered from jaundice in her late teenage. By now you know that my lengthy hair is inherited and no miracle has happened here.

Internal Hair Care

Yoga & Mudras

  • I learnt Yoga basics at the age of eleven. I love to do Yoga and I try to do it every day since then. It is scientifically proven that practicing Yoga stimulates invisible Chakras and Naadis in our body and thus makes us healthy.
  • I do some basic Mudras like Surabhi, Jnana, Praana, Vyaana, Apaana, etc. I don’t know in what way these influence my hair health but I believe they do.

Food

  • I am not a foodie.
  • Vegetarian, everyday intake is traditional Havyaka Brahmin cuisine. I prefer to have red (boiled) rice. Most of the days you will find my meal with coconut and butter milk like that of every typical Havyaka Brahmin. Occasionally I try different Indian cuisines. I am not exposed to any other cuisines much.
  • Very light to mildly spicy is my food.
  • I am OK with anything – raw or cooked or baked, oily and/or spicy and/or fried, sweets or chats.
  • Balanced, I intake a little of everything that is prepared.
  • I don’t have any dislikes for any vegetables, cereals or fruits.
  • Fruits I eat are any local seasonal ones like banana, guava, papaya, mangoes, jack fruit, jamun fruit varieties, gooseberry, sapota, star fruit, butter fruit, oranges…. I am crazy about wild fruits that are eatable like that of Kepula (ixora), ajji budka (wild gooseberry of India), Kuntala (South Indian Plum) and so on. I don’t show much interest to the fruits that are not local or seasonal.
  • I don’t count calories.
  • I try to drink more water as I am still develpoing that good habit.
  • No coffee, no tea. I take 2 glasses of milk daily.
  • I love coconut! Be it in tender or ripe or kobbari (copra) form, I am crazy about sweet coconut water and coconut fruit of Coastal Karnataka. Some people say that coconut in your diet boosts hair growth.
  • I eat Indian chats and noodles occasionally.
  • I don’t think I would taste pizza/burger ever.

External Hair care

  • Usually I wash my hair once in a week. I avoid washing hair if I am at a different place so as to keep away from hard/chlorinated water.
  • I used Wipro Shikakai soap for washing my hair in my childhood. Later I came to know that Medimix soap is good for scalp when our skin specialist recommended it for scalp pimples. I started using besan (gram flour) instead of soap (occasionally herbal soaps and herbal shampoos I have used) since my early teenage.
  • My Amma used to prepare gompu (herbal moisturiser and conditioner) using hibiscus leaves and we have been rinsing hair with it after washing with soap or besan.
  • Daily application of oil as a natural conditioner is so common to me that I didn’t know for many years the concept of oil massage to the scalp only prior to washing hair.
  • I rarely leave my hair free. While going out, I usually use a thick hair tie or hair band to tie my hair at nape. My all time favourite hairstyle (my hairstyle at home) is a high bun.
  • I do not use any kind of hair stylers, hair gels and hair colours. The only tool I use is a set of hair slides.

That’s all I think! I hope my words would be useful for those who are trying to grow their hair longer. Do you have any tips to share? Please do share it along with your feedback for this post.

Take care! Bye until the next post!

Yours,

Sindhu
