Get Your Hands On These Looms At This Tiny Studio In Marathahalli
A tiny studio in Marathahalli, Samast Roop is a hidden treasure to shop for handloom sarees, dresses, kurtas and tops.
What Makes It Awesome
Tucked away on the second floor of the Sowbhagya Annexe Building is a tiny, hole-in-the-wall retail outlet of Samast Roop, where you'll find gorgeous dresses, kurtas and sarees in handloom fabrics. The store may be small (only 3-4 people can comfortably stand here at a time), but it's super Insta-worthy, and Gauri, the owner, will help you pick something perfectly suited for you. Plus, all of their fabrics are sourced directly from weavers, and stitched and labelled in their own stitching unit on the third floor - so you know it's the real deal!
Some of our favourite pieces were a hand-embroidered blouse piece featuring a Lambretta scooter motif (patched in checks), a kalamkari shift dress, block print cushion covers and a pretty chanderi floral handbag. They also have handloom sarees in cotton featuring ikat , comfy kurtas, and tops. Everything in the store is priced upwards of INR 1,400 and goes up to INR 3,000. If you want a custom outfit, just let Gauri know, and she will get it done for you. Prices and delivery time depend on the fabric and the level of detailing you ask for.
