With a charismatic history of art and tradition, India has some serious ingenuity and artifice hidden in its roots. There are many unearthed treasures and uses of its culture, that still need full exposure. Some quirky brands are riding the ingenious wagon to make their mark with a series of fun and conversation pieces, ranging from textiles, jewelry to earthen pots and home goods.
With intriguing brand names and an entertaining work culture, these names are surely bringing something totally new to the table. The big brand names are being run over with new start-ups that boast being funky and organic. Quirky and unconventional, the new upcoming names are truly off-beat and that’s what we love about them.
