Navgraha is the brand we're talking about. An online store, this label seems to be acing the subtle saree game with its curated collection of drapes sourced from across the country. Their Kota sarees are our favourite! Light-weight, rustic looking and featuring an interesting mix of Ajrakh prints as well as simple designs in earthy hues, these look super contemporary and seem perfect for Chennai's humid weather.
Their modal Ajrakh sarees are just as gorgeous and come in hues of olive green, ivory, teal, rust and more, all featuring intricate designs beautifully placed across the expanse of the saree. For all you cotton saree lovers, Navgraha offers a bunch of khadi, kanchi cotton, Chettinad cotton and soft cotton sarees in bright as well as earthy colours along with figures, buttas, tiny checks, card designs (club, spade) and more. Prices start from about INR 1200. We even found Chinnalpattu sarees, matka muslin handwoven sarees and floral linen sarees in a range of colours on offer.
For something more festive, you can check out their solid, silk cotton chanderi sarees! Regal looking but lighter than heavily, embroidered silk sarees, these can do the job just fine. Their katan organza silk sarees that come with zari work in sorbet hues like turquoise and pink, as well as bold combinations like ivory and indigo, are absolute stunners too. Navgraha has some fine-looking benarasi sarees on offer as well. From blush pink to leaf green and teal, you can choose from a rainbow of colours. But we are totally eyeing their black and gold benarasi saree with actual temple designs woven onto the saree border! If you're looking to make a statement, you've got to check this piece out.
