Nothing ever happens fast in India....delays seem to be the norm for everythiong! and then when something finaaly arrives it often needs to be 'adjusted'...read Fiona screaming with frustration...when I ordered a 50cm square pillow insert why would I want a want an insert that is 49 x 56cm...it is not even a square....answer ohh well we had a bit of extra fabric. Melt down, count to 10, count to 20....count to 100000000000000 you get it.
These are new silk throws we have made....the first 2 I am looking at feeling a bit nostalgic for Australia, they really bring back the Bush to me....and then the next one comes and Praveen draws a big breath - ahh peacock colours- yes that is nice....his visual associations are all India.

We hope to be doing a Trade show in february so madly working on samples...we have been looking at registraion with an Internationally recognized Fair Trade Organization- we meet all the criteria as far as I can see....but boy are they expensive by Indian levels of income....not sure what to do...will keep looking and asking questions.
We rty to be transparent in our poerations...part of this blog as well, and any visitors we show all to but I think some type of registration would be a good assurance for overseas shops and clients....tell me waht you think on this I do not know the climate out there.
Sometimes living in a small village in Rural India is a looooooonnnnnggggg way away form anywhere.
