CHENNAI: Have a fetish for organic stationery or vegan food? Sunday will see 10 startups showcasing and selling products ranging from handmade jewellery, homemade personal care products, vegan chocolates and ice-creams in the city. The Fall Folly, conceptualised by a group of entrepreneurs united by the love for all things eco-friendly, vegan and sustainable, will be hosted at Karya Space, a coworking space in the city. "What is different about this marketplace is that all the products being showcased are eco-friendly and cruelty free. Visitors can chat with the founders to hear their story, view the products and buy, if they wish," said Arjjun Chander, founder, Karya Space who has offered his space in RK Salai free of cost for the event. In a bid to promote niche product startups that often get overshadowed by commercial brands, The Fall Folly is intended to provide a platform for small businesses that have unique products to showcase and sell them. For instance, Cocoatrait, the distributors of Mason & Co will bring vegan chocolates made bean to bar at Auroville. Bottled Bliss offers a range of homemade personal care products. VeggyTable will bring in vegan take away food while the Eco Trunk will showcase lifestyle products that are organic and cruelty free. Sri Aurobindo Handmade Paper Factory, based out of Pondicherry, produces paper from 100% cotton rag pulp. Their paper is durable and lends itself well to stationary which will be showcased at the Folly. The marketplace is being organised by Arture, a lifestyle accessories brand that uses cork as an alternative to leather, Aurosoya, which works with organic soya beans to promote health and wellness, Rossbelle, an affordable luxury brand, VegPlanet Magazine, a vegetarian/ vegan lifestyle publication and Chennaiyil.com, a local social media website.
