We find ourselves in new cities, making new friends. In this post, meet our new stockists; partners who share our passion for indie magazines. They are lifestyle/concept stores, creative spaces, fashion houses, boutique hotels, cafés and similar exciting venues. If you are close, do swing by and enjoy what these places have to offer and of course pick up a ‘mag’ on your way out.

What could be a better place than Jaipur to initiate the revival of old craft trades and let the world witness our art and craft prowess, in all its multi hued and ethnic splendour – the capital city of Rajasthan, a State seeped in culture and heritage and arguably the biggest success in the ‘Incredible India’ story. I assume Maximiliano Modesti and Yash Agarwal, boarded the same train of thought when they got together to set up Jaipur Modern, a concept store that celebrates ‘the Modern Indian Craftsman’.

Jaipur Modern showcases products that are a result of the finest textiles that India has to offer (sourced from Pochampally, Telengana to Ajrakhpur, Gujarat) combined with the unmatched skills of Indian ‘karigars’ (artisans). I am a proud owner of the shibori dyed ikat scarf from their store and can confirm that the quality is of the heirloom variety. Amongst the eclectic selection of textile products you can also find a mix of accessories, art, jewelry and now our curated selection of magazines!

In addition to finding the most exquisitely designed products, the store itself is a visual treat - occupying a 1940’s bungalow with a kota stone mosaic courtyard at its feet that greets you as you enter. We understand that the much sought after and regarded interior designer and architect Rooshad Shroff was responsible for the look of the place. Hand embroidered tiles on the walls, vintage terrazzo tiled flooring, Louise Bourgeois inspired marble inlay work (hand crafted by local artisans from Agra) - you are guaranteed to find your self locking gazes with during your visit. Adjoining the store is ‘The Kitchen’, a café that offers up a welcome break from the ghee laden meals that you may be feeling guilty of partaking while in Rajasthan.

There is no doubt that Jaipur Modern is a must visit for any discerning shopper, so mark that high up on your list of to-do’s next time you are in Jaipur.
