Tri is an upcoming Kolkata-based brand that features dresses, hair accessories, notebooks, and scarves handcrafted completely out of Bangladeshi gamcha, for anyone looking to spice up their wardrobes this season.
A simple scarf gifted to a friend that snowballed into a small brand, Tri became a reality when it launched on Facebook in 2016 by Tri Paul. Gamcha is a coarse cloth generally used as a towel, or for cleaning the floors, and Tri has innovatively converted the same cloth into fashion apparel and more.
Everything is custom-made by local tailors, and is made to order. It’s affordable, hand-made, and eye catching.
Tri is minimalist and fashionable rolled into one. Ordinary and otherwise dejected, the plain gamcha is turned into beautiful Bong-style blouses, kaftan dresses, hair accessories and even kamar-bandhs to wear and flaunt.
Colours are sober, with pastel hues and check prints. Our favourite picks are the gorgeous gamcha covered notebooks and the breezy blue kaftan dress.
#LBBTip: We advise you to call Tri for placing orders, as she is open to shipping pan-India. There’s a standard delivery charge depending on the city.
Where: You can place your orders via Facebook here.
Price: Notebooks for INR 250, kaftan dresses for INR 700
