What Is It?

Can’t get enough of sarees but always on the lookout for something that helps you stand out? Well, we suggest you head to Dastkari Haat Samiti’s {a national association of crafts people and weavers} exhibition of handloom sarees, hosted by The Registry of Sarees. Focusing on traditional skills, the group hopes to promote Indian cultural heritage through handicrafts, art and textiles. Bringing together the handiwork of weavers across the country, this is where you’ll find artsy prints, designs and varied fabrics to pick from.

Who Is It For?

Saree enthusiasts and shopaholics, you can pick out unique pieces to add to your wardrobe, while window shoppers can go ahead and gape at their selection of beautiful drapes.

Why Should I Go For It?

Showcasing sarees of fabrics and weaves like Chanderi, Kota, Gamcha and Kotpad, there’s plenty here to tempt you. Look out for works by Akshara Project {curated by Dastkari Haat Samiti} which uses scripts, calligraphy and cultural stories in craft skills. Fancy a saree which has characters from the Telugu script within leaf patterns? Get it here! Apart from a range of indigo prints, they also have elegant drapes in vibrant colours, and materials like banana silk fibre.
