Buying Trip: September 2023

India is a country known for its vibrant colours, intricate designs, and unique fabrics. It's no surprise that many stores choose to source their products from there.

Kim recently took a buying trip to India after a long break, and the experience was just as amazing as the first time around. During this trip, Kim was able to reconnect with local artisans. Rediscovering the beautiful and high-quality silk fabrics that India is known for and finding even more colours and textures to incorporate into our inventory. Additionally, Kim came across some stunning jewellery pieces that are sure to catch the eye of our customers.
