Meet All The Designers: A Lowdown On Artisans Bazaar

Ipsita posted on 31st August

Did you hear? We’re back with the third edition of Artisans Bazaar! As usual, we’ve teamed up with OGAAN, our favourite multi-designer store, to bring you awesome curated goods by 20 indie labels, all under one roof.

While the magic will only unfold on the day of the bazaar, we’re giving you a lowdown on what to expect from each of them. See you there!

Urvashi Kaur

An extension of the Urvashi Kaur label, Kapda is similarly built on the fundamental that steers clear of mass production and indiscriminate globalisation. Think relaxed, natural, eco-conscious luxury.

If the inside of your cupboard is a sea of greys, whites, and blacks and you plan to keep it that way, Kapda’s got stunning waterfall shrugs and skirts in denim, jersey dresses and tops, racerbacks, and more for you.

Check them out here.


Clean, chic, and minimal—sounds like your kind of wardrobe? Check out Anomaly at Artisans for their collection of essentials that are understated and classy. Here you’ll get well-tailored apparel made with the best of fabrics.

We love their double pleat relaxed pants and travel pants.

Check them out here.


If you, like us, have a special place in your hearts for the colour indigo, 11.11 is going to become your soul-mate shopping destination. They’re bringing their bandhini ombre collection that’s made with khadi and dipped generously in indigo.

Check them out for shirts, comfy pants, dresses, jackets, and more.

Check them out here.


Defined by structured, minimalist and androgynous separates, Bodice garments are all engineered in natural and hand-woven indigenous textiles, including khaki, cotton and silk, all produced by various artisan groups in India. You’ll love this if you love solid colours in your wardrobe!

Check them out here.

Dhruv Kapoor

Dhruv Kapoor is bringing his collection ‘Sartorial Sport’, which uses clean lines, tie up details, and a combination of textures. Fans of the sports-luxe trend, head straight here, for you’ll find a blend of metallic and shimmery accents, button-down accents, and an earthy colour palette {think mustard yellow, brown, and grey}.

Check them out here.


Started by designers Amrita Khanna and Gursi Singh, Lovebirds is a contemporary label that focuses on simplicity by fusing silhouettes and architecturally-inspired geometric designs.

Check them out for some unusual shapes and silhouettes in tunics, tops, and bottoms.

Naushad Ali

Based in Auroville, Pondicherry, eponymous label Naushad Ali celebrates the skills of artisans from the oldest villages of West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh. The designer heavily uses traditional weaves and indigo dyeing to make clean, everyday wear.

Check them out here.


Taking fabric and material woven locally, Aneeth Arora of Pero creates outfits that we feel belong easily on the {fashionable} streets of Paris, perhaps. She calls herself a textile and dress maker and is fascinated by the dressing styles of locals of places she visits—which then becomes the inspiration for her collections.

Soham Dave

Based out of a studio in Ahmedabad, Soham Dave is a fashion label that makes use of natural dyes, handwoven biodegradable textiles and artisan skills to make sustainable apparel for all you eco-conscious folks out there. They’re bringing two of their collections to Artisans—The Clamp Story, which makes use of textiles such as Chanderi and Ajrak to create minimal, urban silhouettes, and Kora & Black, which uses fine Bengal muslin and khadi.

We’re grabbing one of their all-white kurtas the moment we walk in.

Check them out here.

Chirag Nainani

If you can never get enough of indigo and tie-dye, Chirag Nainani should be your first stop at Artisans Bazaar. Don’t expect regular silhouettes, though, because that’s where this brand sets itself apart from others. Think innovative silhouettes {where a peplum and jacket are fused together to form something extraordinary}, asymmetrical high-low jackets, long, flowy dresses, and lots of other awesomeness.

Check them out here.

Kora Divine Designs

Love to dress yourself in light, summery kurtas and palazzos? Kora’s got plenty of those in cotton—from plain to embroidered to block printed. Not just that—they’ve got dhoti pants, kalidar kurtas, chanderi scarves, and lots more you can pick from. We know we’ll be making multiple stops here for sure.

Check them out here.

Sartorial By Swati Garodia

Check out Sartorials present collection at Artisan’s Bazaar, which will feature vegetable and resist-dyed tunics, capes, shirts, and dresses with tribal embellishments {cowrie shells and ghungroos} and hand-block prints. Muy gorgeous.

Check them out here.


Get yourself to the Crow counter if you want some oversized handloom dresses with patchwork and applique work. Their jacket dresses, asymmetrical dresses, and flare dresses are supremely gorgeous, and can be easily transformed to something more Indian if paired with a churidar and big jhumkas. And the reverse also stands true for their anarkalis!

Check them out here.


The dominant fabric used by this Jaipur based brand is mulmul {Indian muslin} along with cotton, silk, and other breathable fabrics most suited for particular kinds of climate. As for processes, they employ mineral and vegetable dyes, and work closely with the Chippa community for all their prints.

Part of their collection includes scarves woven by the Meghal tribe of the Marwar region of Rajasthan.

Check them out here.

Kaveri Lalchand

You’ll find lots of angular cuts, soft folds and drapes, pleats, and tassels in Kaveri Lalchand’s collection. All their garments are made from 100 per cent linen—perfect for the horrendous heat and humidity.

We’re loving pieces from their spring summer range—airy and somewhat whimsical. Beware of over-shopping at this counter.

Check them out here.

Kavita Bhartia

Kavita Bhartia is bringing her Cross Stitch Collection, which consists of easy flowing tunics, skirts, and dresses. Also, lots of block printing.

Check them out here.

Ritika Sachdeva

A popular label among the ladies back at the LBB HQ, Ritika Sachdeva is bringing edgy tassel earrings, square and oval studs, contemporary rings, and lots more to Artisans Bazaar. If you had to pick just one thing from this brand, we’d blindly go for one of their gorgeous ghungroo earrings or neckpieces, which are so stunning they almost make us cry every single time we look at them, only in a good way.

Check them out here.


We love Dhora like a girl loves chocolate cake. While the jewellery is more on the relatively simpler side, the designs and karigari make each of their pieces no less than absolutely stunning. They’ve recently come out with their minimal range {think hook earrings} as well as leather jewellery {chokers!}, so you can imagine just how excited we are to check it out.

Check them out here.


The source of inspiration behind the collection Dang’s bringing to Artisans Bazaar is nature—the motifs are inspired by elements of nature, such as hydrangea, wild flowers, and more. Some of their pieces have even been inspired by celestial elements like the moon and the stars.

Each minute detail has been handcrafted using indigenous metal and the embellishments are done in myriad colours of glass and real pearls.

Check them out here.


Making asymmetry beautiful, Vitasta is a celebration of leather. The Portugese musical term 'desafinado', meaning 'out of tune', inspired elements of this collection. Sling bags, make up pouches, totes and wallets in tans, blacks and nudes- each of their pieces have interesting details to break the rigid proportions.

Think hand-cut leather fringes, handles that are just a little off center or asymmetric seams - Vitasta brings a little bit of chaos to Artisans Bazaar.

Check them out here.

Jewellery By Astha Jagwani

Astha Jagwani mixes European designs {influenced by her stay in London} and Indian styles in her jewellery, in a way that they can be paired with both western as well as Indian wear. If that isn’t enough for you, her jewellery is often seen being worn by Bollywood actresses, such as Sonakshi Sinha, Nargis Fakhri, and Ileana D’cruz. That do anything for you?

Check them out here.
