Christmas Decorations Galore!

Green Floral Snowflake

Magenta Floral Snowflake

Last year it was a pleasure working on our Christmas decorations, and we had a great reaction from customers, so this year we have expanded and have been collaborating on designs with a couple more NGOs and our official “Christmas Decoration Designer” Kavita. Most of our decorations have now arrived, are up on our tree in Nandi Durga Road, and we will be showing them off at the OWC Christmas Bazaar in Bangalore this Saturday.

One of the new NGOs we have been working with is ASHA (Academy for Severe Handicaps and Autism). ASHA works to help autistic children become independent in taking care of themselves and to make use of their time productively. One of the ways they do this is through vocational activities, and in our case the children have created and painted beautiful papier mâché decorations. We look forward to supporting ASHA in the future and helping the children develop their skills further.

We have also been working with various artisans on hand-embroidered zardozi baubels, silver wire danglers, sequined stars and other decorations. A small selection of these are shown below: please come and see these and more on Saturday or in our store.

And as a small business, it’s good to see everyone getting involved with the nitty-gritty work!
