Along with Spring, Diana Kane is happy to welcome the arrival of Auntie Oti! These handmade, multi-purpose textiles are what every kitchen/bathroom/closet needs.
Auntie Oti searches India for domestic articles essential to the everyday life of this rich and multi-cultural society. Ordinary consumer items are often produced on a local level. This results in commodities that differ not only region to region, but also village to village. Many goods are made at home on a lone loom and each piece is personified by the individual hand of a skilled artisan. While no two lots are alike, each is beautiful in its unique way. Each piece can delight in its own singular way. Humble and practical items are often multi-purposed in their functions. A gent’s woolen shawl becomes an impromptu blanket. The utilitarian gamcha is a towel, a neck scarf, or a head wrap to keep the sun out. Unadorned simplicity and versatility is why they continue to endure in the pragmatic culture of India today. A seemingly infinite variety exists within a single category. Plain weave towels with their ever-changing borders, patterns, sizes and color combinations still serve the simple purpose of drying oneself after a bath or doing the dishes after dinner. Even mill woven and machine made goods differ according to the nuances of time, the availability of materials and the area where they are made. All are beautiful.

You can't go wrong with matta, but our latest shipment is particularly exciting. Maybe it's the flattering, yet liberating silhouettes.. or maybe it's the cotton and silk combos, or the fabulous detail work...
I think matta fall/winter 13' line is so amazing, however, because of the colors. Look at the COLORS!

Armour lip gloss has always been a favorite of ours, the moisturizing base of Shea butter, avocado, mango, olive oils, grape seed oil, and Vitamin E guarantee long lasting color without drying out your lips. Completely Paraben and cruelty free, Armour lip gloss is long wearing yet environmentally friendly. Theo Kogan, the creative force behind Armour Beauty, was inspired by her own performing career to offer the missing piece in the beauty industry, a lip gloss that supplied a dramatic look without any sacrifice.
Named after her favorite musicians, icons, night clubs, and songs, Theo Kogan's wide range of colors are so much fun to carry in the store. Our latest shipment included the new and delicious 'nirvana'. An amazing addition to our much loved Armour inventory.
