yahoo.comHi Kanika,
I love your blog.. these tiles, your dream homes and the sari you designed for yourself.. Fab.
Thanks for dropping by Girl About Home, as for the dyes, I used Dylon cold water dyes readily available in craft and DIY stores. I am sure they can be sourced through the internet also.

We have these tiles in our study and the staircase:-)

They are so lovely and the fact that each tile is handmade makes it even more special:-)

Hope your dream home becomes a reality soon:-)

Hi Meiyappan,

I've been in love with Aathangudi tiles every since i saw them at the Residency Towers in Chennai. We're in the process of decorating our new appartment and I'd love to use these tiles in the house. Could you please put me in touch with some manufacturer's there? Some place where I can personally choose the designs? I'd be obliged. I love in Chennai.
