The urgent need for safety & comfort:

Experiencing the authentic fabric and materials is a luxury

Shopping is therapeutic for many. The quest for finding a new addition to our lives in well-organized aisles of the famous boutique stores in your city is refreshing to the sub-conscious. But the anti-crowding measures and risk of cross-transmission laden with a huge density of new-age cities has disrupted that. The disruption has far-reaching implications which is pushing whole humanity by decades. The luxury of unappointed shopping is hurting us all.

If the economy has to work again and in the safest way, it is possible with our behavior change. The habit of just going unannounced to a store has two main problems. Firstly, it gives a little headroom to the store representative for some preparation for your details, leaving you a notch south served. Secondly, it increases the chance of viral cross-transmission likes of COVID19 by breach of safe distancing. The viral carriers of COVID19 take 30 minutes of contact time to install in the human body. If closed spaces have more people than the capacity to safely allow safe-distancing, it can hurt not just the infected person, or the store but the whole community. Every infection is as fatal as a full-blown war to destroy the economies.
