A Happy Store Hidden in Powai:

I spotted Freedomtree online a couple of months ago while looking for fabrics to shop for. I picked up a few fabrics online and was very happy with what I got. Ever since I'd been hoping and planning to see their store in Bandra, but just never got about doing it and wallah! I notice on Facebook one evening that they've opened a store in Powai, which is a fifteen minute drive from home. This treasure of a shop is hidden in a residential building, adjacent to a school and so you won't find it that easy, but call the staff up at the store and they'll come till outside to get you. The first thing that strikes you is colour and that's what got me there in the first place. I'd drooled on their online store for weeks and had such a lovely time picking up colourful ceramics. Here's a peek at the store. Pardon the quality, I was only carrying my phone camera :)








There's tons to choose from. Cushions, furniture, poofs, table linen, quilts, dohars, crockery, rugs, bakeware and lamps and shades too.


I picked up some colourful ceramics and the mustard rug at the back. The staff manning the store, Sumit and Shekhar are utmost patient and helpful. The store closes early so make sure you get in by 7. They'll keep it open till you're looking around. I'm in love with the mustards and yellows and absolutely fell for the rug. The furniture is neat and compact and they'll happily customise it in the wood and colour of your choice. Fabrics weren't in stock, but they'll have it here soon. 
Here's the fabric I bought a couple of months ago from their online store.


I've used some for a Wristlet Wallet and a Convertible Clutch Bag. I adore the red and orange fabric. Its upholstery weight fabric and can be used for a variety of projects.


I love the simplicity of the store. The colours speak for themselves. I hope to keep going back for more. If you're looking for something different for your homes, you should definitely make a visit here. Don't forget to tell me how it went eh :) Thankyou for the patient read people. Have a great weekend!
