The legitimacy of a karigar embroidered kurta has been lost in today’s world of international brands and leading fashion labels. 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 tradition. They also sell embroidered gifts and stationery such as notebooks and frames, which can be the ideal gift for friends, and even a colleague -- thoughtful yet not too personal.
