A Day to Remember!

First major shipment – cleared customs today and will be delivered tomorrow morning.

First set of invitation cards – arrived from the printers today and after a lot of stuffing of envelopes will start being distributed tomorrow.

A carpet sale – to someone equally passionate about her new business, that of selling unique sarees.

A photo shoot – of brass platters that are concave but insist on looking convex! The Karen silver sets though were meant for the camera.

An interview for Time Out magazine – our first!

Getting the story boards done for our upcoming exhibition – a moment to stop and appreciate seeing others enjoying researching the Silk Road as much as I have.

The journey and the excitement of it continues!

  • Welcome to Arastan

    Arastan was an online store that curated rare and handpicked treasures from exotic bazaars along the ancient silk route. Unfortunately we ceased trading in early 2014.

    You can read about the reasons for closure.

    You can still browse some of the products we used to have via the category links above, although none of these are available for purchase.
