Ten Second Takeaway

Doing sarees in every form and fashion, Shaatika stocks Indian ethnic wear, majorly sarees: Think authentic, handcrafted drapes from every state. Madhubani, Katha, Kalamkari and more, this is your stop for the next do.

A ‘state’ of mind

‘Shaatika,’ which means saree in Sanskrit, likes to consolidate artwork and ethnic weaves from national awardees all over India. Shalini Verma, owner of Shaatika, personally goes to each state, and then handpicks pieces that are added to the annals of her saree shop. We know that every girl likes to adorn herself with a saree once in a while, even if just to embrace tradition. Shaatika gives you exactly that pleasure of revelling in authentic handwoven wear, and from each state no less.

Something for everyone

Committed to only procuring and providing hand knits and pure silks, this is a store that will have Indian ethnic wear to your liking in terms of colour, prints and embroideries. We love the Ajrakhi prints on Kota, and the Bandhini with block prints. The Kalamkari Gods splayed over a silk is just as good as it gets. Apart from sarees, you will also find some beautiful dupattas, fabrics and potlis.


Pretty prints and pallas

Catering to your every whim, you’re bound to find something absolutely within your budget here. They have dupattas that range from INR 400 to INR 9,000 {for a delish chikankari piece}. For your occasion{al} wear, you can also pick up some gorgeous tussars and chanderis. Worth a visit, take your credit card along {we just couldn’t resist}. You’ve been warned.
