Ten-second takeaway

Hand-stitched clothes, bedding and accessories for children {0-14} with beautiful prints, breathable fabrics and easygoing tailoring.

A mini take

Delhi-brand Almirah launched in our fair city last year in the beautiful confines of lifestyle store Cinnamon. The four-year old label is the brainchild of mother-daughter duo Divya and Aditi. While Divya brings in her 25 years worth of experience working in the garment industry, Aditi her daughter, has trained at Parsons School of Design, New York and believes in slow and sustainable fashion.

Baby got swag

Almirah’s speciality lies in their gorgeous prints {cows, owls and elephants, animals rule here}, Indian textile techniques {tie-dye, block printing and more} and their embroidery on soft fabric {think mul mul and organic cotton}. What we love is the fact that the clothes are made keeping in mind the mini target audience. So roomy pants with elastic, dresses that can be worn as tops and lehengas that can turn into skirts – because kids really grow up rather fast. What we really love is that a lot of Almirah clothes are unisex and can be rocked by little girls as well as boys.

While the pricing is a bit steep, the clothes, linen and bedding will last a long time thanks to the fine quality of fabrics used, without much wear or tear. We also love their range of hair bands, clips and tassel necklaces in neon colours. Soft toys, mobiles, sling bags for the little fashionista or the sartorialist and baby or diaper bags are some of the other products, all made with fabric adorned with Almirah’s signature prints.

While Delhi, Bangalore and now Mumbai have Almirahs stores, the good news is that from this month onwards, they are also going online and we can’t wait to “Add to cart”.
