Behind our name

"Bandar kya Jaane Adrak ka Swaad”

This Indian proverb is one of our favorites, and is transliterated as “What does a monkey know about the taste of ginger?” Of course the transliteration doesn’t mean much – and there are multiple explanations. The meaning that I attach to this proverb is that “One who is not introduced (or acquainted), will not appreciate.”

So, at GingerBandar (Bandar = hindi word for Monkey), we aim to introduce and acquaint you with unique (and often rare) arts and artifacts. We will do the running around, find the artisans, curate and introduce these products to a global audience. From traditional designs spanning back centuries, to modern pieces reflecting you – we will introduce to you pieces of art, or home décor or jewelry – that you will cherish. So check out our products, and get introduced to a world of amazing – which we are sure you will appreciate.

P.S: The jury is still out if Monkeys do in fact like the taste of Ginger – if we were braver we would try it the next time we see a Monkey
