Then you must check out Jullaaha Boutique in Anna Nagar. Started by Jayadevi Cholayil, a social entrepreneur, this boutique features contemporary fashion and ayurvedic body care products, all made by destitute women, trained by Cholayail herself. The moment you step into the store, your eyes are met with some bold prints adorning the sarees and salwars that occupy the ground floor of this two-storey boutique. Beautiful block print and batik sarees, rustic soft silks, subtle georgettes, and organic cotton sarees, all handcrafted and painted using vegetable dyes fill up the racks. We also found lovely hand-painted Sumo silk sarees featuring intricate murals, leaves and other Indian motifs starting INR 4000. But it’s the Kalamkari designs here that bowled us over. Found across sarees, kurtis and even clutches and bags, the Kalamkari prints here are truly one-of-a-kind and come in a variety of patterns and colours, all made with organic dyes. Jullaaha also has chanderi, raw silk and some rich organza sarees on the second floor. Pair them with a contrasting blouse or get one designed at Jullaaha itself. You can even customize your sarees here where you can show the staff the murals or other patterns of your choice and then get them painted on the sarees. Jullaaha’s got body care products too. Featuring an extensive range of tinted lip balms, shampoos, scrubs, hair dyes and bold red lipsticks, made with natural ingredients, the entire rack is worth checking out. Not just that. Right by the staircase that leads to the second floor, there's a huge glass shelf featuring chokers with semi-precious stones, pearl chains, oxidized silver necklaces and rings, jhumkas, metallic kadas and more. A total one-stop-shop, don't you think? Also, three cheers for women power, guys!
