Mother's Day Gifting Guide 2021: Products from 11 Sustainable Homegrown Brands - Studio Covers


It is no secret that our mothers have shaped us in fundamental ways. We wouldn’t have been the people we are today had it not been for the privilege of being raised by these awesome women. We, at Studio Covers, would know this better than anyone else. After all, it is a mother and daughter running the show, with the grandmum being responsible for starting the show! 

So, when, once a year we get a chance to celebrate our mothers, and specifically our bond with them, we better make sure we do a good job of it. While your mums already know that you absolutely love them, a physical token of that love would make her day!

Here is a quick gifting guide to help you find the perfect gift for your mum. Given the tumultuous events of 2021, and just the fact that we as conscious consumers need to make conscious choices, we’ve made sure that all the products included below are sustainable and vegan and made by brands that are homegrown. Most of the businesses mention here are also small businesses because they’re the ones that need our support the most. 


1. “The Goodness of Kashmir” Gift Box by Indus People


The gift box consists of two Kulhar cups (available in three colours: white, beige, and soft pink) made of stoneware with 24 carat Gold. Along with this, you also get a box of Kashmiri Apple Tea made of Darjeeling tea and the goodness of Indian herbs.

3. Ink Black Tea Dress by Crow Handcrafted Luxury


An amalgamation of traditional and modern sensibility, Crow is one of our favourite brand of brands: it’s ethical, sustainable, and actively involves its workers in the creation process. 

While we had a hard time choosing just one product from their collection, we finally decided the Ink Black Tea Dress was the way to go. It’s a classy effortless piece that is equal parts easy-breezy as it is perfect for events and formal meets.
