What you see – With increasing awareness of environmental issues, more and more people today prefer to buy eco-friendly products. Either Or is a store that stocks green products ranging from garments for the entire family, jewelry and bags made with natural fibers to children’s books, soft toys, home decor pieces and diaries. Its range of products is so diverse and innovative that shopping here is pure pleasure.
What you get – All the things sold in the store reflect the concept of environmental preservation and the revival of traditional earth-friendly crafts. Step into the beautifully lit section at the entrance for western clothes and party wear. Stylish tops for women and silver jewelry with precious stones are just some of the temptations here.
A push-cart piled with toys and framed prints of Pakeezah and Mughal-e-Azam on the walls, greet you in the ethnic wear section. Here ladies can choose from naturally-dyed tops (from Rs. 250 onwards), exquisite hand-embroidered skirts and trendy kurtas. Fine tussar (Rs. 650) and cotton (Rs. 250) stoles, duppatas (Rs. 950) and funky bags of jute, cotton and embroidered silk (from Rs. 200) are also worth a look. Men are spoilt for choice with very reasonably priced cotton shirts (Rs. 450), linen shirts (Rs. 590 onwards) and kurtas.
That’s not all. You can pick up interesting knick knacks like diaries with kundan work (Rs. 300), wooden artifacts, mirrors and even books on cinema. We spotted a beautifully crafted wooden cheese platter available for just Rs. 400. Art lovers will appreciate the frames and postcards with prints of Raja Ravi Verma and other distinguished artists.
Our verdict - Finding parking in this area is tough, but this charming store with its countless little eco-friendly treasures is definitely worth the effort.
