Paper craftWhen the mind is your canvas, imagination becomes your brush. There are no limits to creativity except self imposed mind blocks. When you invest time in making a gift memorable it is even more important to choose the right gift wrap. Besides being unique and personal there is also innovation and exclusivity in making the gift stand out – the gift says loud and clear `it’s from you’!

There is a variety to textures to choose from. Kantha Bhattad of Paperage prefers handcrafted paper. She believes “a good handcrafted paper is made from re-cycled paper”, also they are eco-friendly as well as durable.

Kantha specializes in designer saree bags decorated with stones and laces to give a rich look. These bags can be gifted as it is or used to present a gift. She also makes paper wine bags which are in great demand during Christmas. 

Kantha recommends using plain corrugated boards for gift wrapping and by adding a splash of colours it becomes a myriad coloured wrapper. Also by using glitter paint on sand paper one can arrive at a glazed effect and that can be used on an ad hoc pattern on the board to give an ‘appliqué design’ look.

Wedding jewelleryEvery woman looks her very best on her wedding day. And what adds to her glowing beauty is the wedding jewellary. The changing times, tastes, globalization and extreme economic scenarios, have all influenced the modern bride’s choice of jewellery. According to Preeti, a young bride to be and a budding fashion designer,” I love the heavy and stone studded jewellery that my grandmother and mother wore for their weddings. I wouldn’t mind wearing that stuff for my big day as well.”

The modern woman shares the same love and passion for jewellery like the older generations. But, she does not like stashing away her jewellery in a vault. She wants to wear it regularly. Besides, western clothes are steadily gaining popularity among the younger generation and heavy, chunky don’t compliment that kind of clothing.

According to Ms. Mala Chinappa, “Today’s woman wants jewellery that can be worn as a fashion statement, everyday. This change of taste is mainly because more and more women are working these days. So, they have more exposure. And the economic independence they enjoy is probably the reason that they are ready to experiment. Besides, inter caste marriages are also becoming commonplace. All these factors have influenced a lady’s choice of wedding jewellery as well. These days people go beyond the tali, six bangles, two rings and the diamond earring which constituted the traditional wedding jewellery package.”
