  1. I loved them all, we have miniature copper tea set in the Black Sea region, I love these kind of things. And the carpet colours are amazing. But colours are great in India. For a long time there were Indian skirts and blouse in my wardrope. Thank you, love, nia

  2. You are welcome dear Mukul, our countries I mean Turkey and India have been always in a good relationships, there is a long historical connection too. Indian handcrafts and as I mentioned, textile art and their colours and the style of painting them are so nice. When I was in UK for my language education, I met at first time with Indian fashion and there were some of boutiques that I loved to shop there, I bought so many things from there. I wish(ed) to be in India and shop from the origin too… Once again Thank you dear Mukul, have a nice day, love, nia
