I have this old Total Jugaadu Yaar, aka Peeyush Gupta, who is from Dehradun and not on Facebook !

He has done many things from share broking , zardozi workshop , labels and packaging , but he wanted always to build a brand , do some what I call ‘Masala Tamasha‘ .

He is like me in his 50’s.

Then he got to know a great Uttaranchali friend’s aka Ashish Joshi’s wife Kiran Joshi, who was very senior professional in Bata, a top sourcing and supply chain kinda girl.

She was over doing a job, and wanted a new life full of creative consultancies and maybe, maybe doing a start-up !

And they came to me.

With the support of the Real Life Desi Girl Seema Gupta, my old Circuit Vaibhav Puri and my Ahladini Akanksha Damini Joshi we launched Desi Motifs.

And you can see the result below –

यह है कहानी पुराने यारों की मस्ती और एक और ज़िन्दगी बनाने की,

यह सिलसिला नयेपन का जारी रहे हमेशा,

यह नशा बार बार गिरके, उठने का,

यह पागलपन उछलने का, के चलते जाना है,

कोई उम्र का ठहर नहीं, कोई सृजन का अंत नहीं.

Desi Motifs is a new footwear brand identity which is inspired by Indian rural folk art forms.

We believe in more power to Indian Design , creating the visual language rooted in our soil and designed and manufactured in India.

Have a look Desimotifs

DESI MOTIFS – The Revival of Indian Art

A metaphor for what is truly Indian.

Desi Motifs branches itself from traditional and ethnic roots and reaches to the ‘Contemporary Indian.’

It paces towards the Cosmopolitans who can’t dust of their roots just as yet.

So, look out for these new ‘feat’ in town and the footprints they leave.

So if you are in Guwahati, Bhubaneshwar or Kolkata they are available in Pantaloons . In Pune in Either Or.

In Kolkata : South City, Camac Street, Gariahat Road and in Kankurgachi Pantaloons.

In Bhubaneswar : Saheed Nagar Pantaloons

In Guwahati : DT Tower Pantaloons

In Pune in Either Or, Sasoon Road

As we step into the start of the festivities. We find ourselves surrounded by choices. we find ourselves in the change .

Change of season. Change of momentum. Change in spirit. And also some chaos.

Naturally we choose the flip flop way.

One moment in the midst of showers, the other in daunting heat and then it’s all fair weather again !

What better than to bring in a little celebration of dance, of joy and colours of happiness in the walk of life!
