Expressions by UV, a fashion brand based out of Pipariya (Madhya Pradesh) is about everything sustainable and homegrown. What started by Varsha Savla in 2014 as a customised design studio has now evolved into a zero-waste sustainable brand. Varsha works with artisans and rural women from all over India and creates unique prints through custom made blocks. Working with artisans and weavers from across the country, Expressions by UV creates indo-western garments using Indian textiles and traditional art forms with western silhouettes.
We are talking about jackets, dresses, kurtas and scarves. Bagru, block print, indigo, and kalamkari are among the traditional techniques that this brand uses in their clothing. Check out their range of jackets with zippers, collars, and tassels that you can pair with a dress, kurta or tank tops and jeans. Add a few asymmetrical kurtas with kalamkari and bagru accents that you can wear to work, family occasion or just casually. They also stock up on palazzo and straight pants. If you are looking to get something custom made, they will help you with that as well. As they are a zero-waste brand, they use leftover fabrics to make fabric jewellery and stoles. The prices here start at INR 1,500 and you can buy their products online or get in touch with them through Instagram.
