TIA PAKHI POP-UP AT VAYU, NEW DELHI






April almost over already? It seems like only yesterday we were gearing up for the event,
and now here we are back in our studio looking ahead at a hot summer!!
Here are a few snippets from the event at New Delhi.



Vayu, designs for living,had a wonderful pop-up event at their store a week ago
and we were so glad to be a part of it. The ambience, decor and the lovely response
just complimented every aspect.


Our products seemed to have blended in right away with the subtle yet classy
interiors of Vayu








We launched our summer clothing line with this event.
All clothing has been made keeping in mind the Indian summer! 
Made with cool colours and flowy patterns, they are must-haves for the summer wardrobe.





Our tropical collection wooed the Delhi crowd and was undoubtedly a 
bestseller!! 







The totes were our new product on display for the first time. The intricacy of the stitches 
and the overall appeal of the bag caught the eye of  many.






It was great to have so many people appreciating the products and 
being recognised to do events like these just lifts up our spirits by leaps and bounds.
It is encouraging and motivating to be able to provide to customers things
that are special and made with love!

2016 is already shaping up to be our busiest year, and we look forward to what challenges 
and opportunities the coming months will bring. Let's do this!

BEHIND THE SHOTS !


Here are a few snippets from the photoshoot we had recently
of our lovely products for our new online store.
 
We decided to pep things up and have a fun-work day,
along with a bunch of beautiful images.




"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, 
but when there is nothing more to take away"






Every last detail counts,
 and the boss makes sure to look into it.











The venue was booming with our products everywhere 
and we sure loved it.






      
         

















With all the happy faces, 
we certainly have some exciting product shots up our sleeve.




The shoot would remain incomplete without our showstopper!!! Little Shanay was too happy to pose for the camera, lying on our soft Tia Pakhi quilt.



By the end of it all we did have a wonderful array of some beautiful images that you can now check out on our website. A big thanks to the talented photographer Shailpik Biswas who was intrigued to shoot the products. You can check out some of his amazing work here

Tia Pakhi in Jaipur


We are just back from Jaipur and are buzzing with energy after a wonderful exhibition at 

The Buzz, at the Lit Fest.



Tia Pakhi boutique was buzzing with colour and products galore. A five day extravaganza hosted at Narain Niwas, was a beautiful exhibit of talent from the country and Tia Pakhi was proud to be a part of it.







 The event had exhibitors from all over the country displaying products ranging from ornate jewellery, scarves, shoes, bags along with books and art. Each craft was different and had a distinct feature all under one roof. We loved how it was a great event to share ideas and meet new people who were all so passionate about their work.


"Kantha has never been so loved before!"

exclaimed a very appreciating customer who was intrigued with each and every piece that Tia Pakhi had on display. It's always nice to be appreciated. Feels like all the hardwork has paid off.

           
Our little happy customer would just not let go off our monkey toy, making it his from the very first time he saw it.



Our little lucky mascot, Shanaay, visited us everyday to motivate us and bring cheer to all exhibitors alike.





Beautiful Narain Niwas played the perfect venue with its vintage hues and perfect blend of modernity with a classic touch. Each arch had a story to tell and the grandeur of the palace made the experience at Jaipur all the more enriching.



Before we knew it, it was time to head back and we still felt that there was much more left to soak in of this beautiful city and the great experience we had just been part of.
