Launched in 2009, Dia Living was started by Sumeera and Nadia after visiting small local communities throughout the world from Pakistan, India, UK, Morocco, Peru and Mexico. Their upbringing combined with their love of travel allowed Sumeera and Nadia to naturally attain a keen eye for luxurious textiles. Their father opened two of Pakistan’s first garment factories and exported hand-printed line of textiles. And their grandmother taught traditional crafts and fabric dying techniques to underprivileged women. They say history repeats itself. These two women did just that…acted upon their father’s experience and grandmother’s wisdom. Dia’s collection brilliantly combines influences from many styles and vintage techniques. You will find bedding, throws, wraps, pillows, scarves, towels, linens, silk, and rugs.

I saw these on Gnaana and wanted to share this funny yet functional product with you. I say funny because during my childhood, they didn’t look this cute! My mother would take out steel thali’s for special guests and they were simple, round and boring. I definitely didn’t think they were cute then but thali’s have come a long way. These meal plates are way too adorable. Can’t wait to get one for my son.

We are not only celebrating our newly designed site but our very first GIVEAWAY! Do you recall me gushing about the beautifulness of Amrita Singh’s jewelry designs recently? This girl knows how to blend tradition with modern designs like no other. Amrita’s popular Bangle Bangle collection has put her on the map but she has also created a vast unique collection of accessories for any look…from Bollywood, Tribal, Hamptons, and my favorite Aztec.
The oh-so-generous team at Amrita Singh contacted me and has offered to giveaway my favorite – the Luca necklace to one lucky BI reader! The winner will receive one two-tone layered cascading metal plated brass necklace.

Happy Monday! Welcome to the brand new home of BollyInstyle! If you haven’t already, please take a moment to update your RSS feeds and change your links or blogroll to my new URL: www.bollyinstyle.com
This blog redesign has been a work in progress for quite some time and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it with you all. I’m working feverishly on several other great sections that I think you’ll love. I’ll let you know as soon as they are available.
I’ve realized after working on this site that redesigning is never really complete (there is always something more to tweak or design again) so I hope you will excuse the dust in a few of my categories as I work on filling them with great content for you to enjoy and ironing out any wrinkles that occurred while transferring my content over.
I would love to hear your feedback on how everything works for you. Not all links have been transferred over from the old BollyInstyle site just yet; so if you spot a broken link or two…don’t be alarmed. I promise I’ll get to fixing them, soon as I can.
And finally… a big huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you for making BollyInstyle what it is.
