Mangalagiri Cottons & Ikat Borders: This Online Store Is All About Contemporary Sarees
What Makes It Awesome
Margazhi Designs creates and sells sarees that celebrate colour and tradition, and infuse traditionally woven sarees with fresh elements in the form of patchwork, and attached borders and pallus.
They work with many otherwise familiar weaves to create a unique result that is unlikely to be found off the shelves of most shops. Special collections in the past have included plain mangalagiri cottons with cheerful printed blouses (block prints like bagh, dabu, etc.), light and pastel florals, and plain tussars with rich, motif-filled raw silk blouses. Their creations are usually teamed with interesting accessories (they often collaborate with other jewellery and accessories brands) which are not only a visual treat, but a good guide to styling your purchases.
