Alam Ansari, a studio potter and a hard-working family man from Sunderbans, looks up at the sky and at the dwindling Sun, with its vociferous gaze receding slowly and gradually into the black opaqueness of the open moon.
A dewdrop of water, from the far sky and the long trees, touches the cold skin on Alam's face! "It rained that night", mentions Alam. He says, "I continued to stare into the sky, and realised that the Sun and Moon are a part of the same clan, playing with yellow and dark colours of the night, yet so different from one another!" He further adds, "the Sun and Moon are like his own daughters, Saina and Meera, intermingling and fighting with each other, but also loving and caring at the same time". He feels blessed by the great Bonbibi (Goddess of the forest)! A second drop of water hits Alam's face, and he starts to wrap his "Potli" of work, with a wide smile on his face! Finally, he knows that he will sleep in peace, for tonight he is inspired by the Sun and the Moon and by the meeting of two godly entities!
After three months of diligent working and sleepless night, our design team were able to capture the essence of this simple village story, the story of inspiration into 'Simply Pastel Part II: Sun & Moon'. This is a range of ceramic tableware with dual tones of mustard yellow and off-white, the pastels that inspired the team and Alam.

CARE INSTRUCTIONSHandle with care.
It was on the advice of our spiritual guru that we (my wife and I) went looking for an aroma diffuser. “Diffusing essential oil helps reduce your stress and anxiety, it boosts the immune system apart from improving respiratory health and boosting memory as well as concentration,” Major (retd) Dalbir Singh who is a Reiki grandmaster, Gaidon master and a practicing master of 18 other spiritual sciences had told us.
The search, however, wasn’t as easy as we had thought it would be. With a trip to a marketplace, mall or state emporia where one could be spoilt for choice ruled out due to Covid-19, we turned our attention on the ever-dependent and ever-friendly google. And found that we were wrong. The search engine gave us loads and tonnes of options, almost all of them in ceramic – in different sizes, designs and colours. We kept website-hopping, shortlisting a few on the way.
The ones we finalised were based on how the aroma diffuser would merge with our study where we intended keeping it, its design and of course, its price. Not to forget, we didn’t want any run-of-the-mill stuff. After much deliberation and discussions, we ended up finalising the Ceramic Gas Stove Brewing Aroma Diffuser from Studio Pottery (Rs 1199) which we considered ourselves lucky to have come across on https://exclusivelane.com/. This one just looked superb – as a small hearth where you can place a tealight and a beautiful little kettle above it in which one can pour the essential oil. Masterpiece creation! We bought it without even thinking twice.
Must add here for people reading this: The website also sells tableware, drinkware, kitchen storage items, desk accessories, vases, showpieces, idols pots and planters, jewellery, lighting and many other products which you are unlikely to find anywhere – in exclusive and never-seen designs and shapes. This means they are exclusive for you. And more importantly, these products do not burn a hole in your pocket!
Another worth a mention point here is that the website, www.exclusivelane.com, is extremely easy to navigate and buying anything just a cakewalk. You can also zoom into the product to see it closely, from the many options available, including one which compares it with a product you are likely to have at home. In our case, our aroma diffuser was compared with a one litre water bottle. This helps you give an idea on how would it look where you want to place it.
These days they are offering some discounts on products. So, don’t wait, log in to www.exclusivelane.com and join the exclusive group.
Great customer service by Exclusive lane.
Job Exclusive Lane!
Love the colours and designs of the products in your page.
So appreciate the prompt delivery, prompt response to the problems of receiving broken mugs of the set.
Wish you would take care to check the quality of each piece of the bought set and not send chipped mugs. Out of the set of six, one was broken and one chipped one ( both of which were replaced immediately thanks!) ans one other had rough edges on the mouth of the mug ( which I did it want complain ..)
but i so love this set that I look forward to chai time each day!
This honest critical feedback is only for the betterment of your service and not to dampen your spirits or find fault in any way..
Would definitely want to shop more with you but please do take time to check before sending the products.
Thanks and continue your lovely work.
Its really useful so aesthetically made and perfect size I just bought one more
I liked all your collection s very much especially Mughal collection. All products has got unique design, style and very attractive
Unique products but the hanging portion can be made sturdy
I have been looking for a unique and original key holder for at least a year and was delighted when searching online, to find this one. I work in the Fairtrade industry and was even more delighted to see that they work closely with local artisans who they seem to have a personal relationship with rather than an impersonal corporate one. When I discovered that it was made in India, I got in touch with Exclusive Lane who were very efficient and helpful in replying to my questions and explaining that they could send it to the U.K from India. This is not something I have done before, order an item to be posted all the way from India, but I was delighted to discover that it was possible. It was a much better price doing it this way, than ordering through a private seller in the U.K, even though there was a small cutoms charge to pay (which was easy to do). The product arrived about a 7-10 days later (I can't quite remember) and it is now up on my wall. As for the product, it is as the picture show. The wooden posts for keys could possibly be slightly thinner to allow easy of getting keys on and off but other than that I am very happy with my purchase and even more with the excellent efficiency and service behind the order itself.
Happy with the product
