Ethnic landscape at Purple Weave

Purple-01.jpg

If you’re looking for home decor products that are ethnic in every sense of the word, drop by at Purple Weave. It’s off the Ring Road, near the Banaswadi intersection.

Nalini Sashidhar who runs Purple Weave, has been working with rural artisans in the South, in an earnest attempt to expose them to what buyers in the city would look for; in terms of colours, patterns, weaves and interior concepts. Her efforts have gone a long way in giving weavers and cottage-scale workers a whole new perspective on design and its relevance to modern interiors.

Purple Weave is a cosy little store that has bedspreads, cushions covers, table linen, curtains, dhurries, floor mats – made from cotton, jute, kora-grass and banana fibre. Nalini’s collections are earthy, ethnic and visually delightful.

Purple Weave also has an interesting collection of gift ideas that are ideal as individual gifts and a refreshing change when it comes to corporate gifting.

    cool.

    did you see any of the classical “chex”?

    so where are the rural artisans from? it will be great if you put a face to them.

    it was nice to see smt shridhar. once you put a face you feel it is a story about somebody from my city, otherwise it is just some shop in my city.

    nice post sharath. one another such shop is fab india which also has lots of these kinds of things. it would’ve been useful if you could comment about the pricing for say just a couple of items to a fully furnishable home!
