home decor and handicrafts

Handicrafts refer to items that are made by people with their hands or basic tools, not machinery. Even if several items, of one design, are made, all their patterns will be different. Handicrafts bring out a person’s creativity and passion through art.

Recently, I was approached by ExclusiveLane to order an item from their website and write about my experience. So, I chose this beautiful looking Spice Box, but not for my spices.


The process of selecting and finalizing the item was quite quick. After spending around 15 minutes looking for something I wanted, the payment got done in less than a minute. This was followed by a confirmation email from them.

Loving the box!


The item took around 4 days to reach me. I asked my daughter to open the courier which was carefully packed with bubble wrap. The cardboard packaging was quite neat, and the item inside the box was also wrapped with bubble wrap. Once we removed the second layer of bubble wrap, the spice box was covered with cling wrap to avoid scratches.

Our Spice Box turned loom-band box


This was indeed a 12 container spice box. But, we are using it as a pretty jewellery box. For now, my daughter has filled it up with her loom-bands. Did I mention that each of those containers are removable?


If you love handicrafts, go through this website and you will surely find something worth your buy. I found some elegant Aroma Diffusers but I didn’t buy that because I have too many already. Don’t miss the Tribal Necklaces which are handmade in Dhokra.

I did not find any areas for improvement because I love the quality and design of my spice box. And, I love the transparent lid too.


While I was going through the website, I wanted to buy everything. I mean the earrings were so pretty, the wall décor so colourful and the hand-woven showpieces had a neat finish. You could also choose one of these items as a gift for your best friend. They deliver all over India.

Have you tried this website before? What was your experience and how did you find the selection of home decor and handicrafts on their portal? Whom do you plan to gift and which item?
