Visited my restful retreat, Auroville over the weekend some days back. The place is well known for its leather and if you take a stroll around Auroville you'll find innumerable small shops with artisans busy making bags, footwear and other leather accessories. This one shop, Annai Leather, has become one of my must-visit shops every time I am here. I don't need to recommend this guy to anyone. Apparantly, his work has crossed international boundaries and has been walking on the fashionable streets of cities like Paris and Milan. He will take the challenge of all kinds of flat sandals and shoes. Here's a glimpse of my new addition straight from his hands.
