In an era where many of us believe quality resides solely in expensive stores, Eliza Bhowmick and Sourabh Ghosh’s labour of love, SawDesi, is determined to provide a leg up to homegrown brands. The third instalment of Art Melange’s SawDesi, held on January 13 and 14 at Jorbangla Gallery (off Gariahat’s Fern Road) with My Kolkata as digital partner, welcomed not only lifestyle brands from across the state but also launched its food vertical with Ghosh’s in-house brand Rannay Rockbaji and Dweepi Chatterjee’s Minn.

Following an intimate inauguration on the first day, featuring actors Angana Roy and Rohan Bhattacharjee, Sawdesi launched the eight brands on display, including a brand sponsored entirely by the house in an effort to promote indigenous art forms regardless of financial ability. “Eliza and Sourabh are both extremely talented individuals, and their unique art-life event SawDesi is true to its name. I’m particularly fond of exhibitions that promote handmade art and are vocal for local, since I prefer purchasing from budding local artisans who are all unique in their own ways,” said Angana, who also spoke about her upcoming film, Pariah (with Vikram Chatterjee as the protagonist), which explores a reclusive man’s inquest into the disappearance of street dogs.
