About Hobby Ideas

Fulfilling Every Creative Need

A unique and complete experience for art & craft enthusiasts

There was a time when art & craft lovers across India had to make do with substandard products to fulfill their creativity. Good quality products were either rarely available or overpriced as these were mostly imported. To fulfill this gap, Pidilite launched Hobby Ideas in February 2002 as India’s first chain of art, craft and hobby stores offering over 2500 products, expert advice and exciting workshops.

It currently has 5 stores across Mumbai and Pune. HobbyIdeas enjoys a strong online presence too via its website www.hobbyideas.in and Youtube, Instagram and Facebook handles. Consumers from all across the world reach out to share their DIY ideas, experiences and ask our experts queries who are available round the clock to help them.
