Colorful textiles abound at Shilpa Rathi, a lifestyle boutique located at the Hill Country Galleria. It's a shop that catches your eye and sense of curiosity from the sidewalk and makes you want to linger and explore once inside. The large space features a plethora of goods, from wearable accessories to statement decor. 

Your first stop will undoubtedly be the handmade scarves, ranging mostly from $30-$60, unless of course you opt for the ultra luxurious cashmere. Every item in the store is handmade of natural materials, and absolutely nothing is mass-produced. It's the perfect place to find a one-of-a-kind gift, and one that you can feel good about considering the store supports Fair Trade vendors and artisans.

Made from recycled saris, silk and cashmere, Shilpa Rathi has a beautiful selection of unique scarves.

You won't be able to miss the colorful furniture sprinkled throughout the store. Despite it's very hands-on construction, the furniture is reasonably priced, typically ranging from $600-$1000. Just note that some of the items on the showroom floor may already be sold, like the colorful hand-painted dresser below, one of my favorite items in the store. 

You can't miss this colorful, handmade furniture - even passing by outside the store.

Artisans produce one-of-a-kind pieces throughout the store; nothing is mass produce.

If you're not in the market for large pieces but love the flair that Shilpa Rathi offers, check out their accent pieces like beautiful pillows and blankets (a top seller, at around $60+), or even wall mirrors, which typically start around $150.

Not ready to take the plunge on a bold piece of furniture? Spice up your decor with handmade pillows.

The colorful blankets are among the store's top sellers.

Even if you're scared off by decorating with color, the store also carries more neutral items like this beautiful mirror and console table (another item that has already been sold!). However, if you have your eye on a particular piece, be sure to discuss with the lovely owner who will be more than happy to help.

You'll find hand carved pieces in the store as well if color isn't for you.

Rathi has a family history in textiles, and her passion for eco-friendly goods is evident throughout the store. They recently moved to this larger location within the HIll Country Galleria, and we hope they experience continued success in bringing true beauty to Austin homes.
