What Makes It Awesome
Located in the bylanes near Eagle Chowk in Secunderabad, is a boutique cum block printing and tailoring store where you can take your plain fabrics for a makeover. Run by Latika Kumar and her daughter Shobita Kumar, who is a fashion designer — you can get your fabrics dyed, tailored and embroidered to your liking here, or pick from their boutique that has palazzo pants, gowns, sarees, kurtis, and dupattas. You can go empty handed to return with a beautifully handcrafted piece made using printing blocks as well. Their catalogue offers lovely designs and colours to choose from, and they have over 3,000 blocks so it's rare to not find something to admire. You can mix and match a few prints (be sure to check out their Kathakali and Madhubani prints) to get a unique piece of clothing or consult them with ideas of your own and they will re-create those too. We watched the designs being stamped onto a cotton fabric and can vouch for the skill of their artisan who effortlessly revamped a white cloth into a designer piece. The best part? It only takes a day's time for them to dye and print on a fabric.They create not just casual wear in cotton and silk, but also wedding ensembles. Upon consultation, Shobita understands your needs and vision to make you a bespoke bridal attire. They also do block printing for bedsheets and table cloths, so make your home prettier with simple yet bold patterns using this age old technique. The prices start at INR 100 for a dupatta and can also get above INR 35,000 for a wedding collection. So, check it out today and own a vibrant robe.
