MADE IN KOLKATA
The book contains a Love Kolkata section detailing the best places to stay, dine and ways in which to explore the city and surrounding areas as well as essential tips on how to get around and even the best books to read.
The Made in Kolkata book comes with a matching travel journal, designed to enable the traveller to record your impressions of the city, be that in a sketch or in notes.
The books are completely hand-made in India, and are the result of design collaboration with Aneeth Arora of the acclaimed clothing brand péro, based in New Delhi. The Made in Kolkata book has an indigo natural dye hand woven cotton Khadi cover, the fabric of India’s independence. The matching Travel journal is covered with Bengali handloom checks. Both books are printed on paper that is made by hand in the age-old method in the small village of Sanganer, on the edge of the pink city Jaipur in Rajasthan. Both books have hand made bookmarks and hand embroidered labels, done by ladies working in the péro atelier.
