Head to Slow Bazaar in Lucknow for all things organic, traditional & pure
The key to happiness today lies in being a little thoughtful, slowing down a bit, and making sure that others grow too while we do. In our fast-paced lives today, we turn to anything that saves us time, without realising its greater impact. As the world drowns in the breakneck speed of fast fashion, Slow Bazaar is here in Lucknow, is here to help us go back to our roots by offering sustainable and environment-friendly products sourced directly from the creators.
Bid adieu to the exploitative world of fast fashion and swap it with Slow Bazaar that offers grassroots-based goods from all over India, made with earnestness and integrity that reflects right through the products. 'Slow Bazaar' promotes a relaxed, purposeful, and thoughtful way to shop their organic Indie-products, handcrafted with love.
Expanding the horizon of the 'Slow Movement' with Slow Bazaar, founder duo- Yamini and Neelesh Misra are slowing down our lives to provide the much-needed sustainable alternative to our everyday needs. Initially started with organic food items, the bazaar now offers a wide range of clothing options for men and women, beauty and wellness products, home decor items, toys and stationeries and even gift sets.
With Slow Bazaar, one can see the diverse beauty of India through these handmade, labour of love sourced from various places across India. From Sitapur's rugs and ottomans to signature Rajasthani Gudri, linens and other handloom products; From Karnataka's special wooden toys to sarees from Bhagalpur, Slow Bazaar has it all. With this store in Lucknow, one can actually get their hands on the authentic products sourced from these cities without having to travel far and wide.
A platform for skilled artisans
Unlike the workers in a mass-production setup, the farmers, artisans and all the creators operate in an ethical work culture that doesn't deny them their basic rights. For the founders of Slow Bazaar, the creators are as important as the consumers and their efforts need to be valued, appreciated and acknowledged with due credit. This idea has been translated into a reality as well, as the creators, farmers and artisans receive 10% of net profit on their products in addition to its cost. Apart from incentivizing creators this concept also gives these talented makers a sense of pride in their skillfully hand-curated products. With the help of their extensive network, the founder duo aims to create recognition for these skilled labourers as well.
What is the Slow Movement?
The Slow Movement stems from the concept of promoting a viable and easy-going lifestyle while steering clear through the chaos of this fast-paced world! While the world is rushing behind fast fashion, this pathbreaking initiative brings forth contemporary ideas ingrained with traditional values through various products, content and experiences. Driven by the success of all its ventures, the founder duo launched the Slow Bazaar with the aim to connect consumers and the creators to this reformist movement and encourage a feasible and eco-friendly lifestyle. This initiative encapsulates Slow Content- which includes poetry, stories and photography, Slow Experiences, Slow Journalism and Slow Bazaar.
