    What Makes It Awesome

    If you like the feeling of living in loungewear wait till you slip into anything and everything khadi from Tattsav. Spotting the difference in comfort will be close to impossible, not to mention you'll be serving some hot Indie looks! But that's not all Dipti aims to do with her self-made label. Using this sustainable freedom fabric that she sources from Surat, (the brand is also based here) she wishes to create pieces of clothing that can be styled and worn multiple ways.

    Mind you, Dipti has no formal training in designing but her clothes could fool the fashionable eye. With the help of just one local tailor, she designs and creates her signature Khadi Chaniya Cholis, Dresses, Tunics, Kaftans and even really hip looking Coord Sets, Jackets and Dupattas. These outfits are made trendy with tiny details like frills, pockets, collars and the shape of the silhouettes but in essence they remain Indian. Thank the natural dyes ( pomegranate, indigo, turmeric), Indian block prints, and fabric for this! Together with khadi, Dipti also uses Malkha (a mix of mulmul and khadi sourced from Telangana) to make pants and kurtas too.

    She advises wearing the chaniya choli top as a crop top, or its two toned dupatta with a simple kurta look. Her blazers also look great on sarees. The styling possibilities are endless if you make a purchase or two from Tattsav. You'll have to act fast though since only four or five pieces of the same are created at one time. You can request for a piece to be made but may have to settle for a different fabric.

    Pro-Tip

    Tattsav takes orders via DMs and ships across the country. Prices start at INR 1,200. You can customise according to size and fabric. For now sizes up to XL are available. Tattsav's handle features Dipti and her friends modeling in the clothing (shot by her), so you get to see these beautiful outfits shine on real women too.
