When on maternity leave, architect Aishwariya was over the moon with delight when one of her artworks made the cut in the commercial space.

As it turned out, there was a tertiary but equally significant benefit.

“I think incorporating art into life can be really therapeutic, especially as a new mom,” says Aishwariya. It was not long before she branched out into making macrame art, pencil carvings, portraits and a slew of other customised gifts For details, visit their Instagram handle insta_arangam
