A Taste of Tika

Welcome to our blog, A Taste of Tika! The blog documents day to day activities, trade shows, products and a taste of life here at Tika Imports in Northern California! 

Today we celebrate our dearest Danielle.
Happy Birthday to you!
May all your dreams come true! 

Join us in celebrating Summer Solstice with our Midsummer Giveaway!

We’re looking forward to long sunny summer days and are inspired to show our gratitude to all of you with a posy of pouches - a giveaway of silk drawstring gift bags!

From June 13th - June 30th we will include a gift of 25 Small Silk Sari Drawstring Pouches in all orders over $100.

These beautiful silk pouches continue to be a favorite among our loyal Tika customers and there are so many reasons to fall in love with them all over again. These pouches are handcrafted in Nepal by our Fair Trade partners from vintage silk saris, up-cycling at its best! They are great for gifts of all kinds and for safekeeping delicate treasures.

It’s time to start thinking about Summer jewelry! These brightly colored bone necklaces are the perfect accessory for fun in the sun. Mix and match from all the colors of the rainbow, wear as necklaces or wrap a stack around your wrist.

We are loving these new Gem Boxes! What will you keep in yours?

You may have noticed that we’ve been adding some incredible vintage textiles to our website lately.

Happy Mandala Monday
 and Happy Earth Day!

We’re going to do something a little different today for #flashbackfriday and show you the BACK of this beautiful Vintage Saye Gosha.
We love the vintage fabrics that line many of our old, one-of-a-kind textiles, but there’s something special about these un-lined pieces as well. The reverse pattern is visually interesting, and it allows us a glimpse into the creation process of these traditional embroidered treasures.
