At school nearly all of my friends and nearly all of the girls in my class have a Sportsgirl bag. Sportsgirl bags are pretty popular in our school and there are so many girls of all ages who have them.

What I like about them the most is that there are so man burberry y dif burberry ferent colours and pattern on them. I have 2 Sportsgirl bags and my very first one I got was a black one because my mum said I had to get a black one for school but then the handles on my black one broke so I got another one my current one is a coral sort of colour and white and it looks kind of like tye dye.

Bonnie has a blue one with yellow and white daisies on it, Lily have a yellow one, Jacinda has a Red one, Darcy has a Red, yellow, green and blue stripy one (I cal burberry l it the Stripy twister bag because it reminds me of the game twister) , Edina has a Purple one, Alex has a red spotty one, Ke burberry isha has a Charcoal one, Gabi has a colourful patterned one and Meg also has a charcoal one!

Awe your guests with jute

Wondering what to gift your guests t burberry his Navarathri season? You could then drop in at the exhibition organised by the South India Jute Association (SIJA) in Adyar to pick up products that are “attractive, durable, ethnic, eco friendly and versatile,” which are made of jute. Well, if you thought jute was only for movers and packers, think again. The colourful exhibits ranging from office bags, stationery, shopping bags, wallets, wall hangings, durries, jewellery, footwear and garments are sure to surprise you.

The exhibition is making its fou burberry rth annual foray in the city with around 21 stalls. Prices of the products range between 20 and 1,000. “The exhibition has been partly sponsored by the National Jute Board and partly by the entrepreneurs,” R P Srinivasan, coordinator, SIJA, told City Express.

SIJA took off four years ago, after entr burberry epreneurs in the South realised the potential of the “beautiful, golden fibre,” Srinivasan said. “After getting the raw material from West Bengal, we started manufacturing contemporary, value added jute products.”

Realising the need for support in procuring raw materials, manufacturing and marketing, entrepreneurs in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala came together and formed SIJA. Today, the association has around 52 members. Workshops are held under schemes sponsored by the Union Ministry of Textiles, where the entrepreneurs are given training in burberry design development and skills augmentation. A leading player in the field, Srinivasan runs his own unit at Kilpauk.

Women too are making a big impact in the industry. SIJA president and entrepreneur Janaki Ananth has been crafting jute bags since 1985. One of her customers is Poompuhar, run by the Tamil Nadu Handicrafts Development Corporation. Last month, she won the Priyadarshini Award for ‘outstanding entrepreneur’ from the Union Ministry of Women and Child Welfare.

“We want to motivate self help groups from rural and urban areas to manufacture jute products by promoting awareness and giving them training,” she said.

For budding craftswomen, help is at hand in the form of Marketing Organisation of Women Entrepreneurs (MOOWES), a voluntary non profit organisation, set up in 1990.

“There are about 40 50 active members in MOOWES. Most of them are home makers,” Janaki Ananth said. “Many of them have diversified into manufacturing jute products after realising its potential and we conduct periodic exhibitions to showcase their products.”

For instance, A Mahalakshmi’s unit at Ekkatuthangal employs six persons and her unit specialises in making wall hangings, mirrors, table tops and letter and magazine holders. With turn over of around 12 lakh per year, she also exports her products to Mauritius.

Running a larger unit in Warangal, Andhra Pradesh, is D Nagendran, a member of the National Jute Board. His unit specialises in manufacture of yoga mats and kalamkari printed durries, which are sold in Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Chennai and Varanasi.

Sujatha Jaishanker, a former teacher and story teller, who was among the first visitors to the exhibition, claimed she was “pretty stunned” at the collection this year. Her son was soon getting married and she was scouting for gifts for the wedding guests.

Pointing at her bag, Sujatha Jaishanker said she started buying jute products after she decided to turn eco friendly two years ago. And the jute items suited her ethnic tastes too. “Compared to last year, there is a lot of variety. I am overwhelmed by the finish, finesse and the vibrant colours of the products.”

Promise of support and assistance for the entrepreneurs came from the State Minister for Handlooms and Textiles Dr S Sundararaj, State Textiles Secretary G Santhanam and Market Promotion Officer of National Jute Board T Ayyappan.

The exhibition is open from October 4 to 11 at Vijayaraja Thirumana Mandapam, First Avenue Road, Shastri Nagar, Adyar.

burberry aways from the Tony nomination

aways from the Tony nominations

The Great White Way continues to be on celebrity life support, but, oh, who can compl burberry ain about the lackluster array of new plays and musicals when Audra McDonald and Mark Rylance are on hand to distract us with their virtuosity?Here are my 10 take aways from this year Tony nominations:1. If you still believe there no front runner in the mixed bag of new musicals, then you clearly not paying close attention to the not so stealthy progress of Gentleman Guide to Love and Murder, which leads the pack with 10 nominations and now has its murderous sights set on the top Tony prize.2. If you an actor, it pays to put on a dress. Just ask Samuel Barnett, Paul Chahidi and Rylance of the all male Night brought from London by Shakespeare Globe that also picked up a nomination for Stephen Fry, who dons yellow stockings; Reed Birney of Valentina, Harvey Fierstein nominated play about straight guys who feel more like themselves when they dressed to the nines in female attire; Neil Patrick Harris of the gender bending rock show and the Angry Inch, which picked up eight nominations, including best musical revival; or Jefferson Mays, who seamlessly quick changes into so many haughty homicide victims in Gentleman Guide that it easy to lose track of the fact that he avails himself of that acting ace card, switching genders.3. If you the brilliant Rylance, it doesn matter whether you in drag or not. He got nominated for his lead performance in III as well as for his featured performance as Olivia in Night. (Rylance nomination in the lead actor in a play category along with that of his co star Barnett upset the predictions of pundits in this very crowded category, yet their Shakespeare work is infinitely deserving of these laurels.)4. If you not Rylance, then you should dearly hope you Audra McDonald, nominated for her magnificent transformation into Billie Holiday in Day at Emerson Bar Grill. A five time winner, McDonald will get a crack at winning for best lead performance in a play, giving her a complete set of Tony acting awards for her trophy warehouse.5. If you associated with a lucrative movie franchise, don bank on Tony love, no matter the depth of your commitment to the stage, as was discovered the hard way by Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart (the stars of the in rep productions of Man Land and Waiting for Godot Daniel Radcliffe (the reason Cripple of Inishmaan, nominated for best play revival, is even on Broadway), and Zachary Quinto, who was the only member of the cast of Glass Menagerie revival shut out of Tony contention and probably the one most deserving of a nomination. (That lead actor category could have been broken up into fall and spring editions to encompass all the great work this season.)6. If y burberry ou a TV or movie actor shopping for a part, the less experimental the play, the better, as the fine cast of Realistic Joneses discovered. The disappointment for me wasn that Will Eno play wasn nominated but that there was no room to acknowledge Michael C. Hall extraordinary performance.7. If you Bryan Cranston, you can star burberry in anything, even a three hour history lesson about Lyndon B. Johnson. Cranston is not only the favorite to win for lead actor in a play, but the Way, Robert Schenkkan legislative drama about how LBJ got Congress to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is likely to win the prize for best play. Cranston, mind you, isn coasting on his Bad fame. His titanic performance powers this marathon play to the finish line.8. If your name is Woody Allen, the news is mixed. Over Broadway got shut out of the a burberry ward categories that would have given this show a box office boost. If you an actress, it never hurts getting cast in Raisin in the Sun. Kudos to Sophie Okonedo and Anika Noni Rose, both of whom were nominated for their featured performances, and LaTanya Richardson Jackson, who was especially deserving of her nomination as lead actress.10. If you an actor in Raisin in the Sun, it probably best to be in the ballpark of the age of the character you playing, even if you a bona fide superstar like Denzel Washington, who gives a muscular performance as Walter Lee Younger but might have gotten the nod had he been playing Walter Lee Older in a dress.
