It’s been high on every tourist’s must-see-in-Bombay (now Mumbai) list for the past century, and it has recently become a destination of sorts to get handmade stationery, candles in every conceivable shape, smell or size, speciality teas and aroma oils. Now, Bombay Swadeshi Stores Ltd, which was re-christened The Bombay Store in 1995, is using Indian pop culture to add a new flavour to its large repertoire. It celebrates its 102 years with a collection of products that showcase the quirky sights and peculiarities of Mumbai.

Coasters with autorickshaw motifs.
Cushion covers featuring modes of transport quintessential to Mumbai.

The Bombay Masti collection may not make it to The Bombay Store’s branches in Pune, Bangalore and Goa, because Dalal says the city-centric products might not be such a hit there, but he says they are always on the lookout to associate with designers who can partner with their brand with such innovative, quirky offerings.

Products are available at The Bombay Store, Fort, Mumbai.
