Craft Corner

It all started when I received a beautiful terracotta aroma oil infuser & a hand made paper planner as a gift from one of my friends.

I loved the stuff so much that it prompted me to check out the address of the shop on the handmade paper bag it came in & luckily there was a website address too! I browsed through and was very interested. I decided that I need to feature this store here and sent an email to the enterprising ladies who run the show-Leena & Mala asking if I can visit them & take pics for my blog. They were kind enough to oblige my request. So here you go:

Craft Corner is located in a serene residential locality. They sell a variety of paper & terracotta products under their roof.

Over ten years ago Mala was helping her father with his printing press. That’s where her fascination with paper has started. She started creating paper products. One of the customers at the printing press was holding an exhibition to give a chance to women entrepreneurs and she wanted Mala to showcase her creations. That’s where Mala met her partner Leena & the two of them hit it off really well and decided to become partners & started
Craft Corner.

Here are some pics of the wonderful creations from their store. You can
visit their website too.

I enjoyed visiting the store, taking pics & meeting Mala. I also ended up buying a lot of paper products from Bangalore Bimba range. I am definitely going to visit them again to get some cute terracotta Ganeshas they they did not have in stock. I definitely recommend this place if you love handmade stuff like me.

Watch this space for more of my favourite stores in Bangalore & a chance to win a give away soon!
