How have you all been doing? I am posting after a long time. So, after two years I finally stepped outside home and actually went on a trip! It was fun taking a break and not caring about anything else other than enjoying for a week. Just like how every good thing comes to an end, a week-long of enjoyment came to an end as well.
Since I was planning for the trip for quite some time, I gifted myself three items from Itokri that I could take with me while travelling. So, of course, I had to share about it with you folks!
Before I get into the products that I got myself, here’s a little about ITOKRI
1. SHOULDER BAG
I am someone who has a soft spot for bags, and I tend to buy more bags than I buy clothes. So, when I saw all the beautiful collection bags on iTokri, I knew I had to get myself a shoulder bag! And that’s exactly what I did 🤩.
This Marudha Woven Cotton Shoulder Bag priced at Rs. 950 is at that perfect size that can be carried as a shoulder bag and also as a handbag. It is not too big nor too small. I gifted this to my mother on her birthday and she really loved it. The black and blue stripe pattern also goes well with also any type of outfit.

2. SPICE BOX
Growing up in a typical Indian family and of course out mothers and grandmothers cozing up to daily soap operas, I think, we Indians are quite familiar with the famous masale ka dabba (spice box)! But surprisingly, we never had one at our house. So, when I saw this spice box on Itokri, I knew I had to get it!
This 12-slot Wooden handcrafted spice box made of Akriti Rose Wood came at a price of Rs. 1820 and given its build quality and the material, I felt that the price was justified.
