This post was written in January
We have taken a bit of time to get our, ‘ibbi life’ blog live – nervous bloggers. So the first few posts were written back in January while we were in India and we will catch up with ourselves.
Calcutta is a cool city. We travelled there to meet new suppliers and scour market stalls to find inspiration and one off treasures for our new ‘home’ collection’. Faded charm, frantic energy, sumptuous cotton and linen, big impact furniture and some very welcoming people. Its a busy city. Street vendors, rickshaw wallahs, ear cleaners all crowd these chaotic streets. The air is heavy with smells of cardamon, coriander and car exhaust fumes but everywhere there is ibbi colour.
