What Makes It Awesome

Baragaon Weaves is a well-meaning venture that works with weaver families in UP’s Baragaon village. The team works closely with the artisans in upholding the age-old tradition of handloom-weaving by assisting them with designs and marketing. The best bit: It brings the weavers dignity of labour and promises a fair price for their craft. You can help support them by shopping from their online site which has a ton of sarees, kurtas, dupattas, scarves and accessories for women and men.

You’ll be surprised at how badly the small-time weavers working in obscure villages are hit by rampant mechanisation. Their handmade looms are time-consuming, and, thanks to the middlemen, fair remuneration often fails to trickle down to the artisan working at the grassroots. This is exactly why (if you are a conscious buyer and a lover of all things sustainable) you’ll dig their saris, stoles, bags and dupattas. 

We’re crushing on these simple, feel-good products, that are as practical as they are good-looking. Plus, the pricing is fair on both sides: The weaver gets what he/she deserves and the benefit of a no-middleman-fee translates into a moderately priced product for the end buyer. We loved their Black Beauty Striped Saree that was elegant and simple, perfect for low-key days. The plain fabrics are absolutely gorgeous in case you have a design in mind that you'd like to get stitched; we fell in love with all the shades of blue! Prices start at INR 260/m for fabrics

What Could Be Better

Their collection of men's kurtas is fairly limited. 


Their online store is honestly awesome. Check out their About Us page to see their team of handloom weavers and professionals who make the clothes.
