We all hunt for good shopping venues that house lifestyle products under one roof. This year, instead of heading to a mall, visit The Dastkar Basant Bazaar in Dwarka, a grand cultural and shopping fest.

Organised for the second time in the CCRT Lawns, Sector 7, Dwarka, the Bazaar has 85 items on display and craft-groups from 18 states are participating. Many stalls this year have showcased organic products. Talking about the trend, interior designer Dimple Kohli says, “Organic products are eco-friendly and don’t catch fungus as early as synthetic products do and are not toxic.

For home decor, organic products can be used for wall hangings, organic colours can be used for painting fibres, plants etc. These products are usually more expensive and one must check that the products are genuine before purchasing them.”

Interestingly, the Bazaar has a lot in store for the ladies as there are stalls that have traditional Indian outfits, cotton, silk and Chanderi saris, beauty and exotic decor products. For instance, at the Grameena Angadi stall, products such as slippers, body scrubber and decorative wall hangings made of Khus are available.

Also, exclusive bags designed by Dastkar are sure to attract eyeballs and are available from Rs 330 onwards. The Bazaar is on till today. Entry is free.
