Shop tour 1 :{green shop, conoor} EARTHY SERENITIES

IN  this era of mass produced goods, a heartwarming collection of handmade beauties brings lot of soothing sunshine. IF your heart beats for ethnic handicrafts like mine does,
''green shop" a little outlet in connoor, sure to entice your soul. let me begin with some goodies which i brought back home from Green shop. A handmade ceramic mug and a terracotta jar...

It  houses a bewildering collection of terracotta artifacts which are specially made in" kerela style" of glazing terracotta. also they are blackish brown in colour ...which is a shade darker than normal terracotta

The tea coasters you see above are done in " tikuli style painting".....a derivative of much talked about Madhubani art......riot of colours i must say

These handmade ceramic pottery pieces are one of my favorites because nowhere else  had i been able to get the kind of deal, Green shop had.
The tote bag featured above is embellished with Toda embroidery.....trademark of a tribe which thrives in nilgiri hills.
Dhokra and cast iron figurines from tribal belts of chattisgarh and jharkhand  also makes an appearance on the racks

THESE ready made blouses can spruce up any traditional saree......what say ladies?
