I’ve been super-lucky with giveaways this year and one I was delighted to win recently was An Indian Summer’s Diwali giveaway of Play Clan products. I’m sure most of you are already familiar with Play Clan’s quirky and fun things for the home. Play Clan “celebrates life and Indian subculture.” This is evident in their irreverent designs for stationery, cushions and other home accessories. They have won several awards for their work, have stores across India and are now collaborating with brands like Paul Smith and Levis too.
Here are some of my recent favourites from their shop:
The beautiful Haveli dress
The Stree T-shirt. The many faces of women in India. And the print promises to be effective in hiding baby fat (!)
A Truck business card holder, because I really must stop squashing my cards in my wallet…
and this ‘Lavkar Chada’ cushion to remind me how lucky I am not to be doing this anymore on a Bombay local.
And here’s what I won in the giveaway : A bright blue cushion filled with peculiarly Indian characters, a quirky eye mask which Mr. Right is already using (quite scary for me when I wake in the night!) and a Ghalib journal that I’m considering filling with verse. So lovely!
A closer look at the cushion…
The parcel came in the loveliest packaging which just adds to the charm of receiving a gift from these guys. Made for a magical surprise! I’ve preserved the wrapping paper. I hope Play Clan considers selling it on their site soon!
