The team here love their soles so much that even while sending it away, they send it away with love. The packages in which your TSS sandals, brogues or slip-ons arrive in are softly cloth-padded, easy-to-open, delicately colour-coded in hues of raw cotton and earth. And most importantly, reusable – ‘Send an old book away to an old flame’ kind of reusable. Or ‘pack your swimming goggles into them for a trip’ style reusable.
Things I liked most – The jute bow-tie strings, the embroidered brand patch, and of course, the soft padding that makes sure no matter how delicate your footwear, it’ll arrive home preciously safe.

A scarf, a thin rectangular towel, a dupatta, a sari, the lungi. Any of these can make the perfect carrier for that just-about-anything you’re worrying about lugging around – Screaming babies, giggly puppies, bricks or books.
What I find most appealing though is the storage factor once you’re done with it – folds neatly away and takes up minimal space.

In India when we travel, we like to wrap up our suitcases in colourful fabrics to protect it from getting scratches. It also makes train travel look colourful and stations look beautiful. This lovely picture was clicked by Manou of Wearabout.
p.s – Pii is off on a long journey (train, included). Back in a month’ish. Posts will reduce a wee bit.
Undo is a range of t-shirts that tries to undo the mess we’ve made of the planet. The messages, symbols, colours and fabrics all do this. The smart thing? They’ve bundled it all into a cotton jhola. That is immensely reusable. Yay! Special thanks to Isha of Undo for writing a lovely note to Pii.
