If you are one of those who are insanely in love with anything that’s quirky in its artistic design, then rejoice. The Art Bazaar at Zenzi, Bandra will exhibit anything with “art-design”.
Says organiser Bhavya Arora, “The bazaar has been conceptualised to promote certain design sensibilities and includes everything from organic soaps and oil to shoes, chocolates, candles, T-shirts, saris, accessories and more. It is basically a one-stop shop for design in any form.”
For the environment-conscious, there are organic T-shirts by No Nasties along with sustainable lifestyle products by Matsya. Says Neha Gandhi, owner and founder of Matsya Crafts, “We deal with traditional Indian crafts and form a bridge between rural artisans and urban masses. At the exhibition, you’ll find a number of bags made from recycled plastic. The plastic is waste from the Kutch region of Gujarat. It is collected by women and woven into bags by artisans.”
She adds they will also display interesting vehicle papier-mâché products, fridge magnets, tribal wall art and gond paintings .
Foodies can stop by i2cook, a brand that exclusively sells homemade peanut butter and mustard at Rs 195 and Rs 140 per bottle respectively. Also, look out for new designer Meena Arora and her eclectic collection of saris priced between Rs 1000 to Rs 3000. Says Arora, “The designers have experimented a lot to create unique products including a paan-flavoured chocolate, which nobody has created before.”

Set of drawers with Rajasthan-inspired motifs by ArtNLight for Rs 8000
T-shirts with unique designs based on Mumbai by Neil Dantas for Rs 500
