BASED ON the theme `be eco-friendly', 95 Parklane, Secunderabad, is organising a Nature Bazaar which will showcase products like bags, saris and dress materials. The exhibition sees the participation of two organisations, Shramik Kala and Dwaraka.

Shramik Kala is a cooperative of women's self-help groups, where women are trained by Shramik Abhivrudhi Sangh to work with eco-friendly cotton, jute, mestha, sisal and banana fibres and natural dyes made of indigo, harda, turmeric and minerals. The training imparted to them enables them to master the art of ethnic hand-stitches and ornamental jewellery, skills used by the Killeketharu and Nadaf communities. They weave customised jute, cotton and blended fabrics to make a range of products like shopping/travel bags and ladies handbags, purses, tablemats, pillow covers, floor mats and window covering - all in the price range of Rs. 70 to Rs. 400. Thanks to the efforts of Dwaraka, Kalamkari has seen a new high. The themes and designs have been patterned to suit the tastes of contemporary women and hence include attractive motifs in flora and fauna. Dwaraka offers a range of gift items, greeting cards and clothes in a myriad hues and designs, specially crafted by rural artisans in the price range of Rs. 80 to Rs. 4,000.

Have a dekko at the products between 10.30 a.m. and 7.30 p.m. till December 20. For information, contact on Ph: 27812160.
