Photo Tour – Go Native Store in Jayanagar, Bangalore

Go Native is one of the stores that promotes traditional & native art, craft skills and livelihoods.  The products in the store are from designers and NGOs that share the same belief.  They sell many wonderful items including – Clothing, Handbags, Accessories for woman, Home Décor, Lamp shades, Cutleries, Pickles, Classic Coffee, Jams and many more.  Before the items are put on display for being sold, they go through a rigorous process of checking the background of the producer and quality inspections.IMG_20170923_115019

Principles

Supporting Native Skills – Promoting traditional & native art, craft skills and livelihoods.IMG_20170923_115815
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – Committed to reducing the use of plastic.
Sustainable Foods – Sourcing supplies from local farms around Bangalore that practice environmentally sound farming and fair trade and grow seasonal, Non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism), pesticide free veggies and grains.  This keeps our carbon footprint low.IMG_20170923_115832
Planet Positive Building – Building has been designed from an old house.  They use solar back-up power, harvest rain-water, compost the kitchen waster and are committed to reducing plastic.
Fair Trade – Trade with organization that ensure farmers and artisans are paid their wages that sustain their livelihoods and secure their future.

Some of the products available at the store – Channapatna Toys, Jute bags from far east in India, Coffee from Classic group, Fabric material (from brands like Shradha, Dori & many more), Woman accessories (Ear rings, Necklaces, Rings, Bracelets), Books, Wall hangings, Paintings, Lightings (from The Purple Turtle) and many more.  I personally felt like picking many of the items and redesigning my house.  This might sound preachy, but I would advise going to the store and check out the products.  I am sure you will be attracted to pick couple of items.

Overall Experience

This place is an absolute delight to visit.  The items on display are truly awesome and I felt like picking all of them for my home. This place is also like an Art & Craft museum where you can spend time to appreciate the beauty of the craft work.
