We Found A Lovely Handloom Store, Right Here In Pondy Bazaar
What Makes It Awesome
The most important part of a traditional event is the urge to dress up! In South India, we particularly look forward to donning our traditional attire, be it veshtis for men and sarees and lehengas for women. Khadi Bhandar offers all of these and more under one roof.
From lungis to veshtis and sarees to blouse materials Khadi Bhandar has it all. Their saree designs are all plain but come in bright as well as dull colours. Most of their sarees have thick golden borders which bring out the subtlety of the saree. As for the men, their lungis are pretty traditional with the common chequered pattern and starchy fabric. They even offer smart veshtis with fat or thin golden borders. Some of the Veshtis even have a slightly unconventional red and green border with hints of golden zari work too.
The best part about Khadi Bhandar is that you can be sure of the quality of material you purchase. Most of the fabrics here are handwoven and survive the regular wear and tear. You will find cute toys and souvenirs at this shop too! If you are visiting Chennai for the first time these make for fun gifts to take back to your folks back home. We personally like the wooden toys they have here that are fun for kids and adults alike. They even keep these cute hand-painted and carved elephant toys that we know those little nieces and nephews will love.
