From traditional ikkat, bandhani, ghumar, patola, warli designs to more contemporary Indian cultural representations, Chimanlals is must for any paper enthusiast.
In the late ’50s Chimanlals set out to bring the Paper Culture into everyday life. Every design is based on Indian traditions and is researched and studied before being applied.
Historically, Indian paper was made from a wide variety of sources, tree bark, jute, grass, straw, wild flowers, leaves, and often silk thread. The process was often entirely handmade and labor intensive.
Today, in striving to be eco-friendly Chiminlals’ paper is entirely wood-free. Products are produced from paper centers throughout India, but continue to be handmade.
Chimanlals products include letter papers coordinated with envelopes, gift covers, wrapping paper, bags, boxes, collapsible baskets, desk organisers, etc.
Chimanlals also serves as a retail outlet for handmade paper made from all parts of India. With the mass appeal of Indian paper ever increasing, they export to retailers in the US, UK, Japan, Netherlands, France, Australia, Singapore, Hongkong and many other pockets all over the world.
No trip to Mumbai is complete without a trip to this tucked-away little gem. If you’re not heading to Mumbai any time soon, don’t worry. Paper products can also be ordered online.
