I’ll bring the Jute Carry-All with me next week to market where we shop the latest trends in fabric and upholstery. It’;s cute and functional with an interior pocket that holds my small items. The white color looks great with my luggage and outfits!

My iPad –; I use it to keep track of fabric images and notes all in one place. There are some great apps that help me document all the color and pattern trends we’;re seeing, along with images.

Pantones –; Sometimes we go to market seeking a certain color of fabric, so I’;ll bring Pantone swatches to see if the fabrics we’;re considering are within our desired color story. I have three colors I’;m on the hunt for right now.

Antique fabrics –; I like to bring vintage fabric swatches to show manufacturers as we discuss new fabric designs we want to do. It’;s a perfect time to provide design direction and select the fabric content and colors.

Makeup –; Our days at market are full of appointments, so I always have a couple of makeup items to freshen up with. My favorites are Bare Minerals powder and Almay lipstick.

A Ballard catalog –; I always have a Ballard catalog for reference and to show to any vendors!

Shelter Magazines?–; Obviously the whole Ballard Designs team looks to shelter magazines for inspiration. My favorite is House Beautiful, so I’;ll usually have the most recent issue with me!

Thanks, Jessica!?

The trigger for this blog is a discussion between some Pepperfry folks who are set to go on a high altitude trek in the next few weeks. I had done the ‘Chadar Trek’ recently in February this year and through the trek I kept thinking about the similarities between trekking and startup life. It’s an introspective monsoon day in Mumbai, business is good, so what better time than this to put my thoughts on paper.
