Our content includes visual documentation of crafts and design, interviews of women founders of creative brands, special projects like the memory series, art events, exhibits from visual artists, poetic travel, curated city guides. Through this magazine, we wish to represent the contemporary creative landscape in India as well as the world. Some other sections of the magazine are an art directory, arts and literature quotes, indie brand listings etc.

Inspired by the Cocoa and Jasmine fields of South India, this started as a cultural project with the intention of documenting travels and collaborating on creative projects within the artistic community.  Within a year, it developed into a digital and print magazine zine and creative studio.

What is a zine? 
A zine ,short for magazine is most commonly a small-circulation self published work of original or appropriated texts and images. Usually zines are the product of a person, or of a very small group. These are produced in snall numbers with the primary intent of publication is to advance the views of the editor rather than profit since time and materials necessary to create a zine are seldom matched by revenue from its sale. Zines have served as a significant medium of communication in various subcultures and draw inspiration from DIY philosophy
