This Boutique Is All About A 200-Year Old Traditional Embroidery Form
Tanzeb in Indiranagar is a specialist in Lucknowi Chikankari fashion and it is as OG as it gets.
What Makes It Awesome
The legitimacy of a karigar embroidered kurta has been lost in today’s world of international brands and leading fashion labels. And the ones which are sold under the cover of traditional embroidery often turn out to be poor imitations of the lost art form. We know because our festive wear shows so! This store is different! Tanzeb is a boutique which is home to the well-preserved art form of Chikankari embroidery art form. Everything in the boutique, starting from the interiors which are laden with embroidered frames on the walls and the contemporary wooden cupboards used to store their collection is simple yet subtly gorgeous. The collection includes embroidered kurtas, pants, stoles, chinese collared tops, Chikankari-embroidered sarees with heavy work, all done by hand, in soft and vibrant colours such as cyan, peach, yellow, turquoise and even white. Think local fabrics such as Kota silk, khadi and light cotton. The collection aims to make art wearable in everyday life, and we agree. We found the hand-woven khadi put to great use in the form of beautiful skirts and Indian formal wear. They even have trousers that pair amazingly well with embroidered collared shirts -- chic, smart and with that hint of tradtition.
The boutique also attempts to revive fabrics such as organdy, which is a light and translucent muslin, as well as kota which is a handwoven silk and cotton fabric. They also sell embroidered gift and stationery such as notebooks and frames, which can be the ideal gift for friends, and even a colleague -- thoughtful yet not too personal.
Pick out from their limited bedsheets and other home decor collection.
