    ArtEastri brings art from the East in the form of stoles, shawls and jewellery working with craftspeople from the area; it's all sustainable too! 

    What Makes It Awesome

    Slow fashion is the hot new trend it would seem, but we all secretly know that to a large extent, ethnic, traditional clothing has always been slow fashion (since they last so long and are so pretty!). ArtEastri knows that, and brings to you their traditional and sustainable range of fashion, accessories and home linen. 

    Sourcing straight from the people who make them, be it individual craftspeople, communities, or cooperatives, ArtEastri promotes art and craft from the East (Assam, Bengal, Bihar, and Orissa). The biggest sellers are the stoles and dupattas. All handloom weaves, jamdani cotton stoles in rich blues, and creamy whites start at INR 900, (tussar) silk-cotton, soft shibori stoles priced INR 950 upwards and  jewel toned dorokha (double sided) kantha silk scarves sell for INR 1,000. Up the quirk factor with their silk patchwork dupattas that are made from cut out patches of upcycled silk sarees and are reversible! Sustainability, versatility, and value for money starting at INR 1,350. 

    To accessorise, check out their range of tribal and dokra jewellery. Chunky, brass, and textured enough to be statement pieces, they start at INR 170. For a more casual affair, they also have bamboo and tasseled pieces too. If you’re just looking to add pops of colour to home, they have silk and cotton patchwork cushion cover sets, starting at INR 350 for a set of two. 

    Pro-Tip

    Find them at the next flea market near you, or at Serenity Lifestyle Store at Jaymahal Extension.
