    Karagiri

    Karagiri

    Available Online

    Known for its handpicked Benarasi Silk sarees and handlooms — Karagiri is naturally our first pick. What we love about this Pune-based saree brand is the sheer variety it offers, across various price points. From elaborate ones that occasions call for to simple ones for work, they cover all spectrums. Two things you must absolutely check: handwoven pure silk Benaras Silk sarees and Jamdani Cotton sarees. We cannot get enough of those offbeat colours like blacks, bone whites, rouge pinks, and coral peaches. The price range across the store begins at INR 2,999.

    Bharatsthali

    Bharatsthali

    Bringing a range of handlooms, handwoven Kanjeevaram Silk sarees, and linens from artisans across South India, Rajasthan, Bihar, etc — Bharatsthali is a drape lover's paradise. If you appreciate a good handloom piece, you'll find yourself loving Mysore Silks, Dharmavarams, and Ikats. Since all the pieces are handcrafted by Indian artisans, you'll find exclusive designs. What are we loving? Linen sarees with khaadi pallus and tie and dye print handloom sarees. The brand also has bridalwear sarees worth checking out. The price range across the store begins at INR 1,500.

    Taneira

    Taneira

    Available Online

    One look at Taneira's saree collection and we're sold! This brand's crisp Maheshwar Silk sarees and Bengal Cotton sarees smell like comfort to us. The designs remind us of legacy sarees worn by our grandmas. Their Benaras Silk sarees with elaborate pallus are every bit stunning and if you've been looking for bridalwear sarees, this is a good place to start. Plus, colours like purples, corals, lime greens, and blacks look quite regal. Apart from these, you can shop for other handlooms and silk sarees too. The price range across the store is INR 1,500 upwards.

    HolyWeaves

    HolyWeaves

    Available Online

    Based out of Benaras, HolyWeaves is a 40-year-old brand that crafts stunning Benarasi Silk sarees and accessories. In fact, this brand is so cool that they've got a playlist on Apple Music with malhars because they think music and textiles go in tandem. Two collections to look out for — Handwoven Benarasi Silk sarees and Jamawar & Tanchoi sarees. Featuring stunning heritage sarees, these display intricate craftsmanship. HolyWeaves also has budget brocade sarees and dupattas that are worth checking out. The price range begins at INR 1,095 upwards.

    Singhania's

    Singhania's

    Singhania's has been around for a while and it's a known brand. We've been eyeing their Kanjeevaram collection for a while now and they've got a comprehensive collection of big-border ones, checkered sarees, borderless Kanjeevarams, self-bordered sarees, etc. Singhania's range of heritage Benaras Silk sarees are droolworthy — in fact, we're loving those elaborate borders and colours. Their entire collection is handlooms so take note that you're grabbing just the best. While you're at it, do check their Gadwals and Venkatagiris too. The price range across the store begins at INR 7,000.
