Shop Local! These 5 Brands From Hyderabad Are Worth Checking Out

If there is one thing that can cheer us up right now, it's shopping. Of course, nothing can replace the good old days where we could saunter into a store, try on different outfits, check out new trends. But online shopping is no less, and the new world demands more of it. Plus, it's safe to shop online. On that note, check out these five brands from Hyderabad that we're loving! 

Ishma

Ishma is a social-conscious brand from Hyderabad that handcrafts jewellery and home decor. These products are not just stunning and pocket-friendly but are directly linked to empowering Telangana and Andhra Pradesh (AP) artisans. We browsed through the online store, which delivers all across the country (Fashionistas from other cities, we're looking at you), and found stunning body jewellery, quirky pen stands, and leather necklaces. We are already adding the leather chokers to our cart to jazz up those off-shoulder outfits. And what's not to love? The entire range is handpainted and designed by traditional artists from Nimmalakunta, Pemberthy, Etikoppaka, and other parts of these two states.

Walk The Talk

Why should fashion compromise on comfort? — is the mantra that Walk The Talk Studio follows and they craft stunning footwear. From elaborate metallic kitten heel mules to ever-elegant pumps — girls, take your pick and go wild. At the moment, they've got two collections — Capsule Collection (go-to every day fashion that includes flats, mules, and the like) and The Runway Collection (say hello to pumps, four-inch heels, textured prints and fabric).

Sugar Pop

Sugar? Yes, please! Adam Levine crooned in our head when we spotted Sugar Pop at a flea market. Whoever told you sugar is bad for your body surely had no clue about the wonders it can do to your skin. And that's what Sugar Pop intends to do. With products like Dark Chocolate face scrub, Mocha Spice body scrub, Rose & Honey lip scrub, it has a sweet spread of more products. Resembling dessert jars, these scrubs are kneaded with the goodness of essential and organic oils, rich butter and healthy nutrients that are sourced from distilleries. These scrubs are also known to exfoliate your skin. More details here.

The Mabel Store

The Mabel Store is a Hyderabad-based online store that curates labels that are worth checking out. The fact that you can spot bright, cheerful and candy-coloured clothes sharing aisles with power dressing outfits is what makes this store truly awesome. If ruffles are your thing, you shall find solace in some of their outfits. That said if you prefer simpler outfits like cottons and something you can wing for an am-pm look, their formals and kurtas will do good.

Svara

Svara sources fabric from women weavers and artisans from remote villages of Telangana. Expect classy outfits, asymmetrical cuts, and outfits that are made from ikat. Whether the climate is moody or summery, ikat can pretty much brighten up your day. The clothes have unique cuts and are mostly boxy and laidback, which makes them comfortable too.
