I am not a big fan of online shopping mainly because I fear about the quality of the product and the difference in appearance between photos and reality. However, the lockdown during the pandemic made me come out of the comfort zone. I love anything ceramic! Whether they are decorative items like vases, figurines, planters, or tableware. I had a wish of owning a ceramic dinner set for myself since a long time which I finally got fulfilled through ExclusiveLane! In this blog I am going to show you what I bought from this site and tell you about my experience.
ExclusiveLane is an online craft brand that has a variety of products that can either be used for ourselves or for gifting purposes. It was started in 2012 and promotes Indian handicrafts globally and help small artisans based in different parts of India earn a living out of it. Amid this pandemic this site is actually a blessing for the local artisans who otherwise would be dependent on a physical shop and tourist influx. In a way it’s a blessing for people like us too for whom these products become available from any part of the country, anytime you want!

My Shopping Experience with ExclusiveLane!
The site has a very aesthetic appeal. Different types of products are nicely displayed and when I saw the section of ceramic Plates and Platters, I knew I wanted to get those! My choice at first sight was ‘The Hut Platter Pack’. I love bright colors and that resonated so well with my taste! Originally my second choice was the ‘Moroccan Dining’ set but unfortunately it was not available in a single serve set. Therefore, my next choice was the ‘Moroccan Floral’ dinner set which consisted of one plate and two bowls. I quickly placed the order and got a confirmation immediately on my email and a couple of days later I received the order.
The order came brilliantly packed in layers and layers of bubble wrap, inside which were two cardboard boxes containing each set covered in another layer of bubble wrap. Of course this was required given how fragile the product was! When I took the sets out from the packaging, I was quite happy to see no difference between the how it appeared on the website and the product in real. The plates and the bowls are moderately heavy given the thickness and are of excellent quality. The patterns and colors on them looked really beautiful. I was extremely happy with the products and my choice 😀
I now look forward to get some more stuff like this really chic steel and ceramic cutlery set, some super cute planters, wall hangings, lamps and a lot more! I would highly recommend you all to try this site out to get something for yourself or for gifting purposes on any occasion. I am sure you’ll love it!
