To celebrate its first anniversary, The Big Door is organising a heritage walk, offering a glimpse of colonial India. Vivek Gupta, founder at The Big Door, tells us, “The idea behind conducting the Heritage Walk at The Big Door is to widen exposure for Mumbaikars towards heritage Indian art and antiques. The Big Door atelier has been transformed into a heritage house of sorts, with the introduction of two new categories — bespoke luxury trunks and heritage menswear. This unique experience will take visitors through an exquisite journey, unfolding stories behind these products that derive inspiration from the regal era.”
You can expect archaic pichwai paintings, marble jaali panels that work on aerodynamics, consoles made from actual balconies that were present in royal courts and hand-carved, uncut marble artefacts, Kerala boats remodelled into shelves, bespoke trunks, vintage menswear and paintings made using real flower colours. The store will also showcase an exclusive first look at watercolour flower paintings by Manju Srivatsa and give you an opportunity to paint your own masterpiece with watercolours.
