The Purple Turtles | New Outlet at Lavelle Road


The Purple Turtles – An amazing place where one can find some of the best work of art. Most of the artwork have been made by artisan from across various stages in India. Very few of the items are imported from outside the country. ‘The Purple Turtles’ as a brand came to existence nearly a decade back and the brain-child behind the concept is Mr. Radeesh Shetty.  It also has Anvitha Prashanth as one of its partners.  In the years of its existence, the brand has grown from strength to strength.  People have loved the products, and this has given confidence to open multiple outlets across the city.  The latest one being at the Lavelle Road.IMG_20191012_125815
