MNL:How did the idea of 'Baar Baar Dekho' come to you?
BBD:Baar Baar Dekho was born out of our love for DIY projects. There is a lot that is there in the market and a lot more that can be there! We thought of creating productsthat are exclusive and that give a sense of happiness when looked at. And we believe handmade stuff does that - things made with love reflect love. And then you want to ‘Baar baar dekho’ them
MNL: What all products do you have under your brand?
BBD: As of now BBD caters to mirrors. We aim to change the way you look at yourself. That’s our tagline too!
MNL: What's your brand’s USP?
BBD: A mirror is something that each household will have. Yet it’s one of the most boring and side lined piece in the house. Our mirrors bring life to your room; they reflect your attitude like the other décor items in your room do. Looking at oneself should never be boring!
MNL: Where do you get your design inspiration from?
BBD: Indian art forms, cinema, social media and people!
MNL: What kind of materials do you use to make your products?
BBD: We love to experiment. We love glitter. Our Valentine Mirror has handmade roses made from felt fabric. We use beads, pearls and a lot of craft decorative items! We love experimenting with colors and that’s what makes them so lively and different from the ones that are there in the market!
MNL: When clients come to you with specific requests for customisation, how do you offer them something unique? Do you think client budgets restrict your creativity?
BBD: The important thing is to understand the taste of your client; rest is automatically taken care of. As for client budgets, BBD is for those who value and appreciate handmade stuff, and these are the people who know and understand the amount of effort and time that goes into making each piece of art. Therefore creativity isn’t restricted in that aspect as our mirrors are exclusively for those who fall in this bunch!
MNL: Tell us something about yourself and your future plans with Baar Baar Dekho.
BBD: We’re a mom-daughter duo. We love to sit in our balcony and try stuff; make new things, DIY projects! We are not artists, we do not have a formal training in the field and we don't think it’s required either. We do what makes us happy (very). We hand make everything, and yes, with a lot of love!
We have a long way to go. Baar Baar Dekho is about being a little hatt ke and we want that aspect to show in all that we do. We’ll soon be coming out with our range of mirrors in different shapes with a little funky element added to them! So watch out!
