While the Poonchh exhibition was on in Feb, I got a lot of calls from people all over the world. Some wanted pieces on consignment, some wanted to buy them outright in bulk. Only one stood out. A mail and then a call from someone who seemed sincere. Sincere, because he got what the dogs meant to me. Sincere and worth responding to, because he wasn’t looking at a dollar or rupee signs but at the passion, I felt for my four-legged friends.
In his mail, he congratulated me on the exhibition and then signed off by wishing me well. But that is not what did the trick… He sent me pictures of his dog 🙂 Well, what can I say- he had me at ‘woof‘.
That was six months ago.
I am absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of the world’s first and only iPad shopping experience. And Poonchh is part of it’s repertoire!! Go check out www.jaypore.com and download the app.
OR see them on FaceBook and download using the code FB0904.
They are also on Pinterest.
To read the stories behind the products they showcase and the people who created them, have a look at their blog.
Note- the app can only be downloaded in the USA.
It is also available at the apple istore (Gosh! I never thought ArtByAarohi and the iStore would be on the same page. Who knew!!)
This is what Jaypore is about – An excerpt from their website:
“Jaypore is about bringing the world a little closer together. We discover the best designs from artisans and craftsmen from countries around the world, and deliver them at exceptional value to our members. Everyday, visit us on your iPad to discover a new story. We don’t like to call them sales, or events. We are storytellers; about amazing product, and the people behind them. Jaypore focuses on products with unique, high quality craftsmanship; unmistakably local designs that feel at home anywhere in the world. Our products include home decor, accessories, jewelry, apparel, gifts, vintage items and more.”
I cannot begin to tell you how proud I feel to be part of this venture. The Poonchh Collection launches on 7th Sep 2012 India Time. (Lasts for 7 days starting today)
Congratulations and my best to Deap, Aarti and the Jaypore team on the successful launch of one very classy product!
