An Indian Summer all year round
There is a pop up shop on Orchard Road, St Annes that lovers of all things ‘ethnic’, colourful and little bit boho that locals need to discover.
It all started with the Indian Cotton,
Lindsey and her husband fell in love with India, and Rajasthan in the North West of the sub continent in particular. The state (or province) is the largest in India and the name Rajasthan literally means “Land of Kings” Its capital and largest city is Jaipur. Because of it’s position it has influences from all around the bordering states and the Punjab state of Pakistan.
When we think of India visually we think of vibrant colours and patterns and this is exactly what drew Lindsey, to want to bring some home, and the fact that she had not seen (much) like it locally. The beautiful dressing gowns, pyjamas .tablecloths, throws rugs and cushions are brilliantly colourful with traditional Indian designs such as paisley and designs inspired by nature and animals . Crisp cotton, silky (sensuous) materials, chunky rugs, felted & embroidered materials, it’s a very tactile place to visit.
What came next is the fabulous Polish oven & Tableware, which as well a looking great in your home (in both traditional & modern settings) but are a great long lasting gift
Added to this lanterns, small decorative items and a wealth of knowledge about what they are and where they came from, it worth putting on your ‘must pop in and have a look’ list when shopping local. As it is a ‘pop-up’ shop make it worth Lindsey’s while to stay!
They have a regular presence at craft markets and trade fairs, and due to popular demand they are now making their range available online too.The website is currently being updated but will provide link when LIVE again.
