It comes with a silver lining! 

The Bombay Store and Art, go hand in hand. It is ‘Art’ & ‘Craft’ that add the essence & spirit to the otherwise mundane life.

The ancient craft of ‘Bidriware’ is a flourishing art form in the Bidar region of Northern Karnataka since the 5th Century. ‘Bidriware’ has a distinctive texture and luster on its surface because of the ‘soil’ that is used to ornament it. This soil is collected by the artists from the interiors of the ancient ‘Bidar Fort’, that has not received rain or sun-light for centuries.

One can beautify their homes with a variety of vases, paan boxes, pots, decanters & more from this collection. This exquisite craft has impressed the royalty since years due to its intricate nature and painstaking process of making it, surely you will like it too.

This striking combination, of a jet black surface etched with bright ‘silver’ inlay work, gives the Bidriware an exceptionally attractive & austere look, which promises to give your living room antique feel. View Collection Here

Ganpati Goes Eco-Friendly!!!

This Ganesh Chaturthi, while you are doing your best to please the Elephant-headed Lord of New Beginnings, show your love towards our planet too.

eCoexist brings to you a range of Eco-friendly Ganesha Idols, made from ‘natural clay’ that have been handcrafted by artists from Maharashtra, while keeping in mind the spiritual code & also design aesthetics. Once the idols have been sculpted, they are painted using ‘natural pigments’ like turmeric, kumkum, red earth and fuller’s earth.

One can immerse these idols in a bucket of water at home, and upon dissolving this water can be poured into the house plants or a garden without causing any harm to the environment.

Let’s not harm the environment and Mother Nature under the guise of celebrating our festivals. Pre-book your own ‘Eco-friendly Ganesha’ from The Bombay Store today! Click here – http://bit.ly/TBSecoganpati .

Also, don’t miss out on the FREE ‘Laddoo’ alongwith your Ganesha idol. Each laddoo contains the seeds of trees like shami, bibba, behda, sagargota, chinch & babul, which upon planting will give you a beautiful, full-blown tree.
