As fans of handloom, we were instantly drawn to this shop. Established in 1959, this handloom house has weavers spread across multiple states across the country, like Odisha, Bengal, and Andhra Pradesh.
While they have a big range of different fabrics, their collections of ikat, Bomkai, and Sambalpuri fabrics from Odisha as well as kalamkari were most extensive and impressive. We even spotted a fabric super similar to the one used in these pants we’d loved at bhane!
And between paying INR 350 per metre for the fabric & then getting a pair of pants stitched, or paying a crazy INR 4,100 for readymade pants, guess which one we’d choose?
