What Makes It Awesome

Mae is a label by Jayeta Rohilla that keeps reinventing old styles and approaches Indian traditions with a practical viewpoint. This Ghunghat Hoodie, which Jayeta Rohilla calls ‘The Untamed Maharani’, came about in an effort to keep comfortable and warm during winters, as well as be appropriate-wear for traditional occasions. Accept it, it’s no fun wearing chunky sweaters with gorgeous, intricate lehengas.

Noticing a shawl-clad lady struggling with a baby, trying to make herself a cup of tea, inspired Jayeta to shut herself up in a room with six stunning Banarasi sarees and come up with the Ghunghat Hoodie.

Nothing like anything we’ve seen before, these hoodies use ghungroos, sarees, fleece, and wool. The vibrant nature of the clothing and the intricate work on the sarees make it very aptly festive. When it gets too chilly at an outdoor wedding, just pop on one of these, and you’re ready to wow the crowd.

The hoodies come in 16 designs and each design is available in sizes S to XL. They are shipping across the globe, and if you're in India, shipping is free for you.

Price: INR 3,400 – INR 16,000 (approx.)

What Could Be Better

All the prices on Mae's website are shown in USD. We wish they had an option to change the price to INR, so as to saves us some googling. 


Mae also has bombers, shrugs, dresses, masks, and lingerie that are worth checking out.
