Journals in Indigo – dyed cotton
I have been toying with the idea of Indigo from ages and finally it has come to fruition. The fabric caught my eye at one of the craft melas that I was visiting and this was about two years back. A small write-up by Brinda Suri is also packaged along with the journal in the form of a small booklet so that all of us who love Indigo can also treasure a part of its history. I have stayed natural with jute thread tassels and obviously it comes with my signature peacock bookmark in brass metal. Sometimes the story behind a product/design is much more stronger than the product itself. I have tried my best to do justice to it. I hope you enjoy the limited edition journals.

Steel Coasters – New Additions
Vintage Newsprint, Circa 1971
While traveling I came across an organisation that was discarding old newspapers that were bound in volumes. These vintage newspapers are dated 1971 and have yellowed and aged with time. I aptly thought of creating a new range of handmade journals, boxes and pencils with them. I have some left which I may use on some of my walls.
Embossed Thank You Note Cards (Sets of ten)
The inspiration to design this range of boxed notecards was my love for stationery, I thought to myself, “Why not say it with style.” The joy of eliciting a smile is the greatest. Before I design most of my products I try and imagine if I would love to use them.
The papers that I have used are all Italian (Sorry! for the deviation from handmade). I think designers need to explore all mediums and not limit themselves to just a few. People do not have the wherewithal to do it hence it is our duty to design for everyone. Actually a lot of my clients have been asking for stationery with clean lines, embossing, etc. I have also experimented with bright colours instead of the white, ivory, gold and beige. Notes should be lively and cheerful.
Hand-woven Cotton Journal With Prints in Vegetable Dye
An exquisitely hand-stitched journal with fifty blank pages in mill-made paper. The cover is made from handloom cotton printed with vegetable dyes. The cloth is made directly from raw-cotton in the villages close to cotton fields combining traditional Indian principles of cloth making with modern small-scale technology. It avoids baling and un-bailing of cotton by heavy machinery and unnecessary transport. It has a beautiful texture, is soft and keeps its shape for ages. Handloom weaving is today the largest non-farm employer in the country, and mostly rural at that. Each region has its particular weave, and that’s the beauty of handloom. The hand-woven cotton has prints in vegetable dyes.
Scriptum – Fine stationery with Hindi script
Meaning of Scriptum (Latin) : something drawn, a space enclosed by lines. Continuing my work with Hindi(Devnagari), Scriptum is a range of fine stationery inspired from Hindi letters & language. I find Hindi very stylish, fashionable and something that’s close to my roots. The range consists of handmade cards, journals, metal bookmarks, wrapping papers, etc. The papers as usual are handmade, wood-free and recycled.

72 Lined Leaves (144 Pages) | Sewn Binding | Size: A5
It all started with a phone call to a friend in Kanpur, who I have known from school days. He runs a successful tannery, manufacturing a million square feet of leather every year. I learned quite a bit about the process and different types of leather. I have set down to doing some customised pieces in the coming future.
Véronique, a french lady based in Mumbai told me something very interesting about leather. She told me that every leather bound book is special and personal to each individual as it gets its look with time and usage, our hands sweat is unique and therefore its characteristics.
This exclusive journal is for you to write down your thoughts while travelling as every journey deserves an unforgettable memoir. Fill the lined pages of the durable hardcover notebook with your favourite sites and most memorable experiences. The cover is made from old authentic maps dating back to the period 1885 – 1965.

The journal comes equipped with an interior pocket for loose papers (i.e. cards, notes and receipts) and an elastic fastener to protect sheets on your travels.

Travel Journal – Small
Jute is a natural fibre that I immensely love. I have been working with it for quite some time now. using tid-bits here and there. I have now released a journal with covers in bright hues made from jute fibre. The pages too are made from pure jute fibre and have not been treated with any colour or dye; they get the off-white shade naturally while the jute rags are being beaten into pulp to make the paper.

My first love and medium of choice is paper. While working with this medium I feel a sense of joy and belonging and I am always trying to mould it into a variety of products. This range of paper jewellery is handmade from recycled and 100% wood free paper. It has a special transparent coating to make it water-proof. The black border holding the quilled pendant is also recycled board. This in other words is environmentally responsible fashion.
Spice range of stationery, recipe books, invitation cards, etc are quintessentially very me. I am a rebel and I love to create the unusual. The mediums I use are varied but simple. The Spice range was designed keeping the food connoisseur in mind as it brings a certain level of ingenuity to the otherwise mundane recipe books and invitations. It simply spices it up.
Paper with real spices entwined in its fibre, this is a combination of 100% recycled cotton rags with spices and is wood free. Below are a few of our papers, namely, bay-leaf, cardamom, cinnamon and cumin.
Cow Dung Range
This is a range of journals and greeting cards handcrafted from paper that is 100% recycled and handmade from cow dung and cotton rags. Cow dung is typically full of short to medium grained fibrous materials from the cows diet which when processed makes excellent paper. Naturally dried cow dung from cow shelters (also called “gaushalas”) is brought back to the village unit to make beautiful handmade paper. GauShala, a Sanskrit word, means the sanctuary or the abode for old, sick, abandoned and stray cows, calves and oxen.(In Sanskrit, Gau means cow, Shala means a sanctuary).
This piece of art epitomises the experimental part of me. The inspiration for this “timepiece” runs back to the time when I was a young boy and the wooden scale with its rudimentary appeal was a constant source of fascination; it was a multipurpose tool and also a toy. This timepiece is sold by invitation.
The fascination with Egypt and its mysterious civilisation inspired me to create this unusual range of greeting cards, journals, bookmarks and gifts. All products have hieroglyphs with its meaning in english printed at the back. The hieroglyphs have been printed on a specially designed and environmentally responsible handmade paper that mimics a peeling wall texture. The papers that hold the hieroglyphs have been hand coated and brushed to give it that authentic look. This range has been developed after months of extensive research on hieroglyphs, papers and textures.
