Bring Home Stories are developing an exciting range of tours which will enhance experiences by stimulating all the senses. We are planning unique tailored tours that you won't find on just any travel or tour site. We want everyone on our tours to leave with a sense of wonder! Read below for detail on our inaugural 'phool mandi' tour.

28th February 2015

In India, flowers are stitched to the fabric of life: Jasmine flowers adorn women’s hair, and as the wedding season arrives intricate Marigold garlands frame doors of homes and numerous Rose petals make their journeys to places of worship everyday. It may seem that there cannot be a life without flowers. And, that is why flowers are sold in a “mandi” or a market yard like vegetables and fruits. The vibrant Delhi Flower market or “phool mandi” inspired bring home stories to create our first city inspired design collection.

Tour Itinerary

The tour of the Delhi Flower market began at Ghazipur flower market, the biggest flower market in India. Those in attendance navigated the market with the Bring Home Stories team to take in the sights and smells of the flower market. Our experts were on hand to answer questions and also create interactions with the flower sellers.

After the flower market tour, we proceeded to the Bring Home Stories studio for a ‘phool mandi” inspired breakfast. This allowed for a lot of discussion about the flowers, about our design process and more.
