Twaksati pays tribute to it’s Inspiration!

The one who wielded the Midas Touch and turned every life she touched to gold. The one who motivated us to to do the same, to open our hearts to the world. The one who inspired us to create, and thus share the joy of living.A self-made social entrepreneur of sorts, she is perhaps the biggest inspiration behind Twaksati.

With her creative embroidery and a skillful hand, she would often make simple, yet beautiful, dresses for all of us for every occasion, and drape our humble abode in Dehradun with her love and creativity. Back home, she gave every holiday a special allure. A few years back, she even urged me to help develop artistic skills of her caregivers at her home in Garia, Kolkata. The two ladies, Lakhi and Brihaspati, have created wonders for Twaksati, with their beautiful handmade embroideries on dupattas and stoles. Her belief in sharing knowledge and skill development rubbed off on us, and are the pillars of what Twaksati stands firmly upon.

Though Smt. Puspa Paul has left for her heavenly abode, she lives in our hearts with her honest and dignified ways of overcoming obstacles, and her simple, yet modern, approach to life. Her hand will never cease to guide us to build a better world. She lives forever with us, in Twaksati.

Twaksati endorses Bunny Arts! Simply amazing and enchanting creativity from Tania Malhotra. Every Art created on glass and the jars is a sheer masterpiece. Anyone who looks at them is sure to fall in love at the first sight. This Diwali take these wonders home to delight your loved ones.

It all started for Tania with a gift coupon of a renowned stationary shop, from her close acquaintance.  She always had a weakness for stationary, and was certainly quite thrilled to make the most of it.  With the idea she quickly got hold of some good number of art and craft items. Grabbed some empty jars from kitchen and started applying her creative juices on them. Having a knack for sketching and painting, she started creating variety of DIY projects, without having an idea that this would gradually lead to the famous Bunny  Arts.

With a surprisingly encouraging approach from her husband, Aditya, and his family, the zeal inside her triggered in no time. Her love for creating the beauty with a touch of modern fusion design sets her apart from others.

The USP of Bunny Arts is Handmade and Contemporary  and a responsible ecofriendly touch to each of its creations.  The Beautiful lamps, Diyas and Vases are widely appreciated worldwide. There is no doubt that Bunny Art is set to create a new story which everyone is going to love!

Sanjhbati- A world of D’liteful creativity

Twaksati endorses Sanjhbati for its creative handmade lamps which are just so unique!


Mundane corporate life and strong passion to do something different, acted as stimulants for Sanjay Singha and Debojit Majumder to quit their jobs and start Sanjhbati. Though none hailed from an arts background or had formal arts training, yet arts has always been their comfort zone and their preferred way to relax and unwind. Hence they decided to pursue it vigorously and utilize their interest to explore new horizons.

The idea behind forming Sanjhbati, was to offer lighting and home decor items which are uniquely designed yet cost effective. Doing so, the duo wanted to break through at two levels. First, they wanted to dispel the notion that handcrafted products are costly and hence out-of-reach for most. Second, to establish a brand within the handcrafted lighting and home decor category which currently is majorly unbranded. Sanjhbati was formed with a team of three people. The team size continues to be small to ensure that each item produced has the touch and finish, which will endear customers. Initially the team started mixed media applications on glass bottles and converted discarded bottles into beautiful lamps. Buoyed by positive response bamboo lamps and hand painted lamps were introduced. Going forward the team wishes to introduce fiber and clay based works also. Currently, Sanjhbati offers decorative table lamps, wall fixtures, floor pedestal and also decor lighting.

Check for more amazing Lamps and lights from Sanjhbati, in ” The Different Mela”- Pre Diwali Exhibition & Sale.  If you want to have one of them this Diwali or would like to gift these unique creations then you must visit ” The Different Mela” at Haldiram Banquet near Ballygunge on 14th of October from 10 am onwards.
