4 comfortable fabrics for this scorching SUMMER

The fabric you choose during summer makes a big difference in your appearance and comfy. We bring you a list of perfect picks!

Don’t misinterpret silk to be a fabric meant only for winters. Silk blends, a lighter and softer version of silk made from natural fiber is considered to be an ideal summer fabric. Unlike raw or pure silk, it doesn’t stick to the body making you sweat or feel sticky. Sport a flowing silk blend dress for an evening outing. Pair it with minimal jewelry, as too much of it can make your skin itch.

When the heat becomes too much to bear, khadi comes to your rescue. The Mahatma yarn has taken the fashion world by storm. Give a modern touch to your khadi outfit by wearing a pair of khadi shorts or a shrug.


When it comes to summer wear, cotton seems to be the best option. The best thing about cotton is it makes you feel comfortable even when it is very humid. It easily absorbs the sweat from your body and helps your skin breathe making you feel cool. Pairing a cotton kurta with a pair of palazzo pants will make for a simple yet interesting look.


Linen is one of the best summer fabrics known for being the lightest of all. It is comfortable and has sweat absorbing properties. The main benefit of wearing linen during summer is that it allows easy air flow and reflects heat better. Linen saris in shades of pink, grey and lavender can add style to your evening wear. A linen sari with a quarter sleeve blouse in a slightly darker shade with a tight bun or a hairband for a perfect summer look. Opt for smart linen trousers and dresses as work-wear to make that commute to work slightly easy.

Spectacular Art Installations of 2016

Year after year, we are impressed by the inventive and imaginative art installations that pop up in museums, streets, and natural landscapes around the world. From sculptural works and found objects to light art and projections, installation pieces play with space to challenge our traditional perceptions of art engagement.

Like last year, 2016 has seen a wide range of beautiful, fascinating, and poignant installations. While 2015’s top works indicated a trend toward dazzling, kaleidoscopic color, this year’s best installations are a bit more eclectic and conceptual, presenting an array of aesthetics and unique undertones.

Take a peek at our favorite installations below.

JR au Louvre by JR

Using photographic prints, French street artist JR camouflaged I.M. Pei’s iconic glass pyramid at the world-famous Musée du Louvre in Paris. When viewed from a precise angle, the structure appears to vanish, revealing the façade of the stunning palace-turned-museum.

The Floating Piers by Christo

Contemporary conceptual artist Christo is renowned for his pioneering land art. For his latest site-specific project, The Floating Piers, Christo created a series of bright yellow paths that invites residents and visitors of Sulzano, Italy, to commute to its neighboring islands on foot. Like all of Christo’s installations, the local landscape of The Floating Piers plays an important role in its concept. “The mountains surrounding the lake will offer a bird’s-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unnoticed angles and altering perspectives,” he explained. “The water, the wind, the sun – all this is part of the project.”

Labyrinth by Motoi Yamamoto

#SafePassage by Ai Wei Wei

Known for his activist art,  Ai Weiwei is no stranger to social statements. For #SafePassage, the leading contemporary artist boldly covered the pillars of Berlin’s Konzerthaus with over 14,000 bright orange life vests. Accompanied by a hanging lifeboat transcribed with the hashtag, “#safepassage,” the installation calls attention to the plight of refugees seeking asylum in Europe.

Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku by Bruce Munro

While British artist Bruce Munro has created various versions of Field of Light, a large-scale, luminous work, it wasn’t until 2016 that he finally installed a light installation on the site that inspired it all—Uluru, a sandstone monolith in Australia. Titled Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku (“looking at lots of beautiful lights” in Pitjantjatjara, the local language of the region’s Aboriginal people) the dazzling display is on view until 2017.

Hope! – a little package

Hope sometime comes in a little package and that little package will grow properly with the believes of changing the hope into realty.  

I am using the social media, specially facebook, for last 3/4 years and i was just using the same for some specific features like chatting, uploading and checking the news feeds. it was beyond my imagination that something creative also can be done through the social media also and i thought to do something online. In one of my previous article I mentioned that my mother, Aruna Ganguly started a boutique few years back to stand on her own feet. Read Here.

But after using the facebook for 10.00 to 7.00 daily for some recreation purpose i became bored about it and then i thought that i need to do something which will make some positivism  for me and for my desire. I thought to put some value to the life, to do something which will be dual beneficial. Then i came to know about blogging and other social media also like twitter but from the college days i was less interested about technical aspects. So i did not get good marks in my Computer Science course where i was always developed wrong programming in C or C+. Actually i never got interest in some code, # or @ or ;. So programming in C or C+ was looking like rocket science to me. But i have some desire to do something for the society and for that first I have to set myself in a strong platform as without proper platform, nobody will give value to my thought and in this days one’s word never make any sense to others until there are some proofs. I thought and thought and then i decided to use my mom’s business as platform. My mom is getting old and the business should be taken care as now i believe that business is the only alternative parallel economy which will help me to survive in the near future.

I created a page of Art Hut. Started to display the boutique items and with that i thought to share the stories of art and culture. To me, just selling one product or selling in bulk may make some quick money but that never put confidence to my prospect or my page lover. Rather it will be more realistic if i share the story of a Rajasthani woman is fighting to stand on her own feet, a story of a common man who is doing embroidery to earn the bread and butter for his family. Actually i believe that promoting a product with a story or history of the same make some positive effect to the readers or buyers, a proper mix up of story with object. There should be some correlation between the artistry and the usage of that artistry.

With all these i am interested to know that what is happening where and discovered that blogging is the best way to know those and with this I can spread my words to the rest of the world with the help of blog. I can express my thought, my feelings to the world where may be someone is also thinking in the same way. I want to connect more people to get some unique idea and to portray art hut in different manner. I am also fond of some quality follower of mine who will like my exposure but not for any technical reason.

Last but not the least is to make a famous brand of my boutique and my thought. I dream that one day Art Hut will be the name of only one stop shopping for every Indian and after that it will be International. Starting from a small cottage it will be advertise in the city of Las Vegas one day. Yesss, it is my dream and dream will only be successful when the strong desire behind the same is there. I need more and more support from every readers, followers and others to nurture me and expecting that i will reach the sky which is also not my limit.

The artisans of the small scales get appreciated by exhibiting their artistry and creations among the mass and also helps them to get a decent appraisal for their products. The 24th West Bengal State Handicraft Expo 2016 was started on 18th November, 2016 at Milan Mela Prangan, Kolkata and will be continued to 11th December, 2016. It’s really an awesome experience visiting the fair last Sunday. On the way to the fair, the first impression was ”Wow! what a colorful sight it is.”  The artists came from villages were making and selling their creations sitting by a row at the ground. There were wooden toys, wicker baskets, handmade musical instruments like Ektara (Monochord), Aar bansi (Flute), Dhol, handmade ornaments; stone engraved statues, various art works, different types of paintings and many more. Artists from the different districts of West Bengal were exhibiting their special significant art works from their districts. Pavilions were named with the name of rivers from the specific districts like Damodor, Jolongi, Rupnarayan, Icchamoti.

Scroll Painting: (Pat Chitra)

Scroll Painting is done on thick fabrics, with the help of natural colors. Popularly called Pat Chitra in Bengal, they vary in length and height. However an average scroll painting is about 15 ft long. It is divided into a number of compartments, with each compartment carrying an episode of the story being narrated through Pat Chitra. It is the specialty of Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia. Artists were painting in mats, clothes, utensils with their crafty skills sitting there. The colors of the paintings were really bright and each painting has it’s own story.

Terracotta Craft:

The terracotta craft of West Bengal is famous throughout the world, for its pastoral and rustic charm. The clay-modeled items that form a part of this craft, made with natural colors, are a viewer’s delight. They were a craze in Bengal during the reign of Malla rulers, in the 16th-17th century. The temple of Bishnupur stands as marvelous example of the terracotta craft of Bengal. Bankura and Bishnupur is carrying their legacy from the long past. A huge collection of terracotta craft is there to make a drawing room more attractive and to make an special impression.

Putul, as the Bengali dolls are popularly called, are a craze in the European market. Shaped out of clay, painted in vibrant colors and baked in a kiln, they represent the rural Bengal. Out of several varieties of clay dolls in Bengal, the real-life dolls of Krishna Nagar, depicting various social scenes like Collector’s court, tea garden, pandit sabha and Charak festival, are the most popular.

Sholapith Craft:

Sholapith is a milky-white sponge-wood, used for crafting beautiful decorative pieces. It is also known as ‘herbal ivory’, as it seems to look like the milky-white items made from ivory.

Aruna’s artistic fight in ART HUT

When Art hut was just a name, was just a desire to flourish more, then this woman started her own fight to make it a renowned name in the field of boutique and handicraft. Aruna Ganguly, a simple woman of middle class family started her journey to stand in her own foot, to support her family, to make an identity of her own. Now Art hut has its own facebook page and website but when it was a dream of Aruna, then she started against all the odds of our society what a married woman faces in the society of a developing country like India. In this regard a year ago, the story of her own fight was published in the bengali vertical of yourstory. Though it is written in bengali, but surely will expect your feedback for the same.
