Fashioned from fibre


ENTICING COLOURS and gifts with natural panache combine to create magic at the `Design Store' exhibition-cum-sale, which is on at Vimonisha Art Gallery till December 30.

The beautifully coloured natural fibre bins, baskets, floor coverings, bags and accessories come in various sizes and styles — plain, embellished with tie and dye weaves, woven stripes and zari borders. The Kilimagalam designer mats are particularly attractive.

From pretty banana fibre handbag to screw pine shopping bag, from Sabai bag and bin to palm leaf box and hand crafted dhurrie - each of the export surplus exhibits is a steal at slashed prices.

Design Store's contemporary minimalist furniture line in wrought iron, cane and canvas is impressive. A range of Etikopakka jars, trays and bowls is also on display.

Crockery from Sri Lanka and lifestyle items from Thailand add an exotic touch.
