Worldbasket team have been at it again! traveling round India buying lovely goodies to sell on our site and at shows.
First stop was our favourite Banjara family to buy Rajasthani gypsy cushions, skirts and wallhangings .
Then out into the country side of Jaipur to the dhurrie factory, where we had great fun designing a
new rug pattern in glorious shades of duck egg blue, dark grey and cream.
We’ll be posting a picture of this this as soon as it is dyed and woven to perfection.
We couldn’t resist the cube pouffes in handwoven wool jute to go with our brightly patchworked range, their so multi functional, put your feet up on them and relax, or
have them next to the sofa for books and cups of tea!
Next we went shopping for throws and found great pure cotton emblazoned with both traditional and contemporary designs, so we bought lots of them!
With our busy week of buying in Rajasthan coming to an end it was time for an outing.
We had a wonderful evening going to the latest Bollywood movie, such fun with amazing dance sequences and then on to dinner at our favourite Jaipur restaurant,
the Four Seasons, yummy local spicy vegetarian food, so much of it and we managed to fit in butterscotch ice cream as well.
Then an early start and a drive to Delhi, where we spent the next week whizzing around the bazaars of Old Delhi sourcing the latest designs of scarves in a multitude of colour, bags, jackets and quilts.
Then all we had to do was get all these wonderful purchases to the shippers, sit back and have a chai.
Come and see all this and more at our stand at the Bath and West show on from the 28th. to the 31st. May
