“We were together. I forget the rest.”
Today I discovered the site Auntie Oti, via Jenni Kayne’s blog, Rip and Tan. I had never heard of them before but when I scrolled through their list of who carries them, I saw several of my favorite stores, like Erica Tanov, and Sprit, in Santa Fe. Their goods combine several of my loves…
Auntie Oti searches India for domestic articles essential to the everyday life of this rich and multi-cultural society. Ordinary consumer items are often produced on a local level. This results in commodities that differ not only region to region, but also village to village. Many goods are made at home on a lone loom and each piece is personified by the individual hand of a skilled artisan. While no two lots are alike, each is beautiful in its unique way.
All of their goods are beautiful; here are my picks.
