    Muksweta

    This Jaipur based brand is all heart and hand! Their handmade/hand painted couture (they do it all sarees, jackets for men, lehengas, even accessories like scarves) is delicate upon first glance but spend an hour or two on their Instagram and the detailing will blow you away. The sarees come in silk, organza or organza silk and boast of hand painted floral patterns of all kinds. We love the colour scheme and the flow/feel of the garment too. Drape one on and you're sure to feel like a princess.

    Price: INR 9,500 upwards.

    Shades By Vidhi

    Bold & beautiful comes to mind when you browse through the hand painted masterpieces at Shades By Vidhi. The hand painted patterns don't shy away from making a statement, they're in-your-face yet pleasant. We're in love with the Modern Classic Silk Saree in black. The cluster of flowers in burnt orange turn around an otherwise ordinary saree. This is an online brand from Chandigarh that accepts orders on Instagram and Facebook. You will also find hand-painted dupattas, lehengas and suit sets here.

    Price: DM for enquiries.

    The Loom

    The Loom

    Available Online

    Love this Indie brand that highlights handloom through its apparel, be it in dresses, kurtas, or trousers. Their sarees are equally gorgeous but it's something about the hand painted range that has us hooked. For days when you want to channel the ethnic goddess within you, shop for one of the Hand Painted Kalamkari Chanderi or Tussar sarees. The Madhubani pieces are stellar too. We're sure you will appreciate the intricacies in the design of these traditional artforms every time you don these sarees. 

    Price: INR 7,350 upwards.

    Picchika

    Picchika

    Available Online

    Picchika needs no introduction. You've probably spotted many actresses flaunt their hand painted sarees and read about them on LBB here. Their organza silk sarees adorned with painted flowers and hand done gota embroidery, give off a very contemporary vibe. We're thinking Victorian style meets Queen of Jaipur, if you know what we mean. Picchika is an online brand from Jaipur coincidentally. The colours (peach, pista, rose) are stunning too.

    Price: INR 16,000 upwards.

    Colorauction

    Colorauction

    Colorauction is a superb find for hand painted sarees on a budget and great for regular use. If you're worried about quality, don't be. These sarees look and will feel great! We are crazy happy about the fabric choices too, everything from silk, chiffon to cotton and organza is up for grabs. The White & Pink Silk Crepe Satin Saree looks divine! The hand painted peacock on the pallu is a show stopper. What more? It comes with a pink sequined blouse, as do all other sarees. They all come with readymade blouses.

    Price: INR 1,400 upwards.

    iTokri

These are silk and cotton sarees that have intricate Kerala Mural Art Work, Madhubani and Kalamkari designs. Every piece as captivating as the other, be sure to be transported back in time as you browse through them. Check out the Madhubani Hand Painted Pure Tussar Silk Beige Saree.

    Avishya

    Avishya

    This another budget-friendly brand on the list we're totes crushing on. It's the designs that have our heart. A mix between traditional and contemporary, in their range you will spot Kerala Cotton Sarees painted with Hindi Alphabet motifs or a Kasavu Cotton Saree With Rama Seethai Design. Geometric, Floral and Tribal designs also abound in Avishya's collection. Most of these sarees are also multicoloured, in case that's your jam.

    Price: INR 2,520 upwards.

    Paarijaatham

    Paarijaatham

    Available Online

    Paarijaatham's hand painted sarees are cool in the sense you can shop for them based on the states. The brand also doesn't shy away from using bold colours which is something we hadn't spotted thus far. From Radha-Krishna, Buddha, to Khathakali, you will find multiple Indian designs. Nature inspired motifs also form a big part of their collection. We think the ships at sea, birds on a tree and floral garden to be quite hatke, to say the least. 

    Price: INR 1,400 upwards.

    Lavanya The Label

    Pink Hand Painted Organza Saree

    Pink Hand Painted Organza Saree

    If elegence is what you want to channel, check out the hand painted stunners from Lavanya The Label. This brand has nailed the colour contrast aspect of fashion, especially in their sarees. The Pink Hand Painted Organza Saree is what an Indian princess would adorn according to us! The big pink roses scattered across an almost lavender-ish pink sheer saree strikes the perfect balance ethnic and modern aesthetics.

    Price INR 3,000 upwards.
