It was a regular Saturday at the JWB workplace when our team was busy planning the coming week’s campaigns, while some were busy having a little extra breakfast.

To surprise us and make our weekend fun, our lady-boss Ana decided to invite Jaipur based brand Paperica’s founder Geetam Nokhwal.

Remember, we did her story some time back? Geetam came to coach us on how to make the gorgeous dreamcatchers she sells online worldwide. What more? She has just introduced fashion accessories made from the articles used in the designing dreamcatchers. This meant we were about to get trained on how to please our friends on Friendship Day (August 2). Yay!

All of us are color-obsessed. When Geetam opened her box full of colorful beads and threads, we couldn’t resist taking artistic pictures for Instagram. _MG_0854a

After we quickly chose our favorite colors, Geetam started to guide the JWB artisans on how to make friendship bands.

Geetam is a friend so she bore it all. She kept calm and taught us all the tricks patiently with an infectious smile on her face. She even asked us to name and describe about our best friends.

And once we were done, we rapidly took pictures of our respective creations. _MG_1169a - Copy

Our blogger, Priya took it to another level by making it a head-accessory.
