Everyday things of India
India is a country where a variety of items are often made from simple materials from fabrics to metal. In the past, Found MUJI has always explored the country’s techniques of weaving fabrics, traditional patterns, and handicrafts passed down over generations.

Things here are created out of everyday needs, and developed to suit the local climate, lifestyles, and customs. In this issue, we travelled again to India, and brought back a collection of everyday items that we found there.


Cloth as clothing

Walking down the streets of South India, it is impressive just to see the everyday clothing worn by the locals. Men often wear a cotton cloth called dhoti or lungi, and women wear sarouel pants or flared trousers called sharara.Breathable and breezy, the everyday clothing, which can be as simple as a piece of cloth, is a style uniquely tailored to India’s hot climate.



Handcrafting cloth as a way of life

India is home to simple, delicate fabrics, whether it is handwoven, printed or embroidered by hand. Fabrics are more than just simply a familiar part of everyday life, but rather it is a common handcraft that is integrated into the landscape. Here, freshly printed pieces of cloth are hung out to dry from lines of garden rope at a small textile factory.



Everyday meals

We came across this typical meal in a local cafeteria. Just as food reveals much about the lifestyle of a place, so too do the tableware and utensils used there. In India, we found metal dishes that are said to work best with cooking that includes spices and oils, as well as ceramic storage containers. From small containers to the large trays used to hold them all, these utensils come in a variety of shapes to serve daily meals.
