CoHabitat is one of the coolest, most unique stores in Hillcrest. Owner Ramu Pandit has set up an outlet for India-influenced home furnishings and décor to not only be stylish, but to serve a good cause at the same time. CoHabitat works with a number of women’s organizations, such as SEWA (Self Employed Women's Association) and SHRUJAN, to create beautiful merchandise that feels like it came right from the heartland of India. Eye-popping colors resonate off of all of the textiles that CoHabitat offers, as well as the cushion covers, bedspreads, and assortment of candles sold at the shop. Incenses are the most popular products, but those looking for a mellow yoga soundtrack or a cheerful statue of Buddha will not be disappointed. Ramu’s store feels like home the moment you walk in and it is hard to leave when he starts passionately speaking from the heart about how CoHabitat is trying to put people over profits with their socially conscious agenda. For those who have little time to donate to a worthy cause, you need no longer be on that guilt trip, because shopping at CoHabitat is also an act of kindness. CoHabitat is a one of a kind store in that its merchandise is as awesome as its mission statement. Namaste!
It's like a trip to India without any jetlag- Great selection and Fabulous Prices !!!!!!! – I have been looking for a store like this for a long time and just happened to stumble in after dinner one night in Hillcrest. If you like the whole India Bollywood look this is the place- the selection is incredible,
the colors are bright and vibrant and the prices are incredible deals- it's like I was shopping in India.
The quality is good and the staff is very helpful and friendly- definitely recommend you check them out.
Unique merchindise and reasonable prices – This is the shop I go to when I want to buy the conversation starting wow inducing gift for my friends and family. I have often run in here for last minute gifts and I have never gone away disapointed and the person recieving the gift always loves the "well thought out" gift they have been given. Little did they know that with a selection like Chabitat every gift appears to be "well thought out".
The home decor of table runners bedspreads and wall hangings are some of my favorite items in the store. It is also my personal source of all my Henna buying needs.
I have enjoy very helpful service here as well.
