True to the name 'Shivam' - consciousness, mindfulness, - we strive to make our items by re-using our existing resources, and natural, organic materials.

Our yoga mat bags are handmade using upcycled, vintage fabrics, while the aromatherapy eye pillows are filled with the healing goodness of organic lavender buds and organic flax seeds. 

We hope to extend and share the journey of these goods as they make their way around the world. From our house to yours.

Namaste.

Happy Friday + Happy Fall!

Shivangi Parikh

Happy Friday folks! I hope things have started cooling whichever part of the northern hemisphere you are in because I sure am loving the cooler mornings and evenings! At least we can go out for a walk :)

So what are you planning to do this Fall? I hope you can try something new activity outdoors because isn't Fall the best season for that! I have signed up for a beginner tennis class in my area and am enjoying it. I have also started biking, and can manage at least 30 minutes of straight roads in my community! Have been doing some uphill biking as well but I cry in my head for all of the 10 seconds that I am going up! Lol. 

My favorite Fall activity has got to be hiking though. I remember we would go for a lot of hikes in California because the weather was more conducive. Nashville too has many great hikes and each year we try to explore a bit more. So I am leaving you with some pictures of the cool, crisp skies around here these days. Hopefully they will inspire you to get outdoors and enjoy this season before the awful winter blows in!

The first two were taken during a recent weekend trip to the Smoky Mountains. The place is so gorgeous, it deserves its own post, so yeah be ready for me gabbing about it :)

Have a great weekend!

Being a Hippie Traveller: Part 1- Nagarhole Forest, Karnataka

Shivangi Parikh

So this week I had a chance conversation with two unrelated folks, who lived in India as tourists for 6 months: one is from Australia, and one from the US. They lived on a budget in different cities, travelled by train, and hung out with the locals. I am sure there are lots of people who take long vacations and get immersed in a culture. But while listening to their adventures is exciting, I am partly jealous cause I want to do that!

So, in an effort to feel like a hippie traveller, I decided to compile a list of some of my recent trips, and share them with you to feel semi-cool. While I may not have a 6-month stint in my backpack, I do have snapshots of some of the most amazing places I have been lucky to visit, even if some of them were for only 6 hours! 

The following pictures are from our day-long excursion to the Nagarhole National Park, also known as Rajiv Gandhi National Park, in Southern Karnataka. It was a beautiful drive through the forest and we were graced with the presence of the famous Indian spotted deer. There was also a school at the main entrance of the forest...so the animals couldn't possibly be that scary!

Have any of you travelled to a National Forest in India?? I would love to see some images or hear about your experience, even if its just one line!

10,000 Tulips

Shivangi Parikh

What a joy it is to be surrounded by these beauties of spring! We couldn't get enough of it! No matter how tired and cranky the three of us were during the drive, we forgot everything once we set our sights on the pops of color at the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. For a noisy threesome, we actually walked in silence as we moved along the path that lay between the thousands and thousands of tulips. Hopefully you can take time to find, and enjoy, whatever natural beauty is blossoming in your community right now. Nature can truly astound anyone. Enough said.
