A store that’s as quirky as its name, Psybaba’s has a vast assemblage of footwear, bags and apparel. Run by Saher and Tanya, Psybaba’s started off as a travelling flea market more than 15 years ago. After hopping through events in different cities, they opened the first store on Castle Street in 2007.
Each product at Psybaba’s is personally handcrafted and exclusively made, making the collection an eclectic mix of tastes and trends. The leather products are personally made by Saher and Tanya; a craft that is self-taught and an artistic escape for the talented duo. They also house jewelry and accessories made only out of natural materials; from sea shells, coconut shells, natural stones, hemp, jute etc.
Being in this line for a while, Saher and Tanya have met quite a few artisans with interesting stories to share. They recall this particular one fondly-‘An old hippie from the 60’s backpacked his way to Kodaikanal. He settled in his hut there, making the most interesting jewelry, crafting them with his crude tools while sharing tales of nostalgia and his expansive knowledge of the local fauna. His name was Billy and any visitor to the place is bound to have had an unforgettable encounter with him. We had a designated counter in our first store, showcasing Billy’s beautiful jewelry and accessories.’
Boho Chic Trends
Bohemian and tribal fashion, which were considered very offbeat 10-15 years ago have now become so popular that people are eager to experiment with the different looks they house. They’re constantly working to create new and engaging products that appeal to their customers. As for 2017, they have a lot of surprises in store ‘We have a range of linen clothing and some vibrant footwear coming up for spring/summer. Look out for the new styles in leather wallets and clutches, our latest addition being handmade leather backpacks’, says Saher.
