MyMela Celebrates the Traditional Crafts of India with Style!

It's time we all start supporting others and stop buying from big box stores where possible.

One of the ways to do that is be shopping at This fabulous online marketplace features Indian artisans and their handmade works. Your purchases help continue the tradition of their art as well as support these wonderful artists. 

You can shop for everything from Home Decor, Home Furnishings and Jewelry & Accessories, so whether you want to liven up your bedroom with a gorgeous bedspread (how fantastic is this Neem design?), add a new evening bag to your collection or get a beautiful wall hanging as a meaningful wedding present, you can find it all at MyMela. There is so much to see - you don't want to miss the hand-carved photo frames, flat-weave dhurrie rugs, hand-blocked tablecloths or the beautiful raw silk and cotton cushion covers.

MyMela was co-founded by a father and daughter - Navroze S. Mehta and Sonali Mehta-Rao - and partners with Asha Handicrafts, a Fair Trade organization whose goal is "to protect the people and arts of India."

Not only will you feel good supporting these artists, your home and closets will be enriched with gorgeous items. Like these stunning Antique Green Earrings (pictured above). The picture doesn't capture their intense beauty or the depth of the stone. You can also see the intricate detailing of the metal better in person. What a fantastic, affordable present! And when you think of all the work and care that went into making these? Sigh.

And if you're stuck what to get your favourite aunt, best girlfriend or the the best dinner party host on your block, may I suggest the spectacular Parvati Scarf? This delicate 100% silk scarf is the perfect accessory whether you're off the theatre or you want something to brighten up your white tee and jeans with its rich wine colour. Hand-dyed using tie-resist dye (which you probably know as Ikkat), the white geometric pattern is modern enough to rock over brunch, right through to late night drinks and then brunch again. Just think how it will punch up your work outfits, pair perfectly with your jean jacket and act as an accent piece against all those black dressed crammed into your closet!

I am so grateful to have found MyMela and for this opportunity to help Indian artisans. In fact, there are even MyMela Loans should you want to help them further.

Shop MyMela now and make purchases that truly make a difference.
