Adding Colour To Your Wardrobe? These Commercial Street Shops Will Dye Your Dupattas And Sarees
Designer Dupatta Corner
Right opposite the popular Dupatta Corner on Commercial Street is this hole in the wall store that sells fashionable dupattas and also takes on dyeing orders. They only take on single dye works so they’ll suit you best if you are looking to douse a plain saree or dupatta in a single colour or if you are looking to swap a fading fabric’s shade with something else. Their prices are pocket-friendly and you’ll shell out about INR 300 for a dupatta and 550 for a saree.
Navrang Dyeing & Printing
When you want to go creative with your fabric, then this is the best place to swing by. Located right at the start of Ebrahim Sahib Street (when you enter through Shivajinagar), the shop offers you the chance to do traditional, one-hue dyeing. But you can also explore tie-and-dyeing as well as Shibori. Prices start at INR 400.
A busy dupatta shop on Ebrahim Sahib Street (not far from Navrang), Sartaj takes on straightforward dyeing orders. You can go to them with a plain dupatta or a saree that you need to brighten up and they’ll deliver the goods in about a couple of days. Prices start at INR 350.
S. Selvaraj Dyers & Darners
A small laundry shop near the House of Vashi this place is perfect when you want to breathe life into a fading or a damaged piece of fabric. If a cotton saree’s colour has run or the hues on a silk saree have been distorted because of water damage, then head here. They’ll help you choose the right colour that will tide over the damage. Of course, you can also give them plain fabrics to work with as well.
Only pure fabrics like pure cottons, silks, and crepes can be dyed. The rest is at your own risk.
