This Is The Kind Of Crockery Your Ammi Will Definitely NOT Put In Front Of The Mehmaan

This Is The Kind Of Crockery Your Ammi Will Definitely NOT Put In Front Of The Mehmaan

Boy, do we all know how much our desi mamas love their coveted collection of crockery. There’s always that assortment of wine glasses, intricately frosted plates and silver chamchay she only saves for the occasional “khaas mehmaans“. Lucky for you, we’ve found some pieces you can bring home and ammi wouldn’t wanna save them for a special occasion. Na-uh.

Here’s a few for your own private collection (and a chuckle or two):

This one for every desi girl who has sat through an unwanted GT with an absolutely repulsive aunty.

And for that one aunty’s health-conscious beti who takes skinny food to the next level of “nope”.

An ode to all the uncomfortable conversations that have taken over a plate of samosas.

In remembrance of apt desi anecdotes and puns.

Of all the times when your ammi thought Aunty Ghazala’s beti was super, super shareef while she was actually not only a chupa rustam but a baddest bitch.

Killing with kindness 2.0

Ammi would probably not even be mad if you break a plate or two because, let’s face it: she’s not going to be a fan of this badass collection.

🌼I DROPPED THE ART ON MY FOOT AND MADE IT META🌼 #SATYANAS

These pieces are a part of Pakistani-Canadian artist Maria Qamar’s collaboration with Loubrown Vintage, an artist that uses china as wall-decor.

Maria Qamar is a US-based ex-ad creative-turned-sassy-artist running her own business and brand by the name of “Hate Copy”

With pieces that were inspired from real-life events in a desi family, the art became an outlet for social commentary with a tinge of comedy.

“It’s so effortless, and most of the time they’re quite literally based on my personal experiences,” shares Maria Qamar.

Which later turns into one stop shop for all things brown and desi girls can relate to.

With a wide collection of prints, totes, tees, jackets, bodysuits, mugs, cushions, dresses and much, much, more.

Since then, her art has gotten massive attention, been featured in publications and art shows.

Even Mindy Kaling is a FAN.
