Handlooms are timeless and if you want to invest in one (or some), ikat sarees are great. I still appreciate and cherish the hand me down ikat sarees from my mother. To keep the tradition of handlooms alive and uplift the weavers, Indysutra works directly with artisans and weavers. This Hyderabad brand has a couple of things in its kitty — handmade jewellery, dress materials, and even home decor.
Indysutra is actively involved in the weaving, designing, and finishing process — basically the entire production. They make a couple of runs to meet their weavers and prefer staying close to the community. As a matter of fact, all the sarees they sell are weaved right in front of them. And the best part? Everything is 100 per cent handloom.
We recommend checking out their ikat sarees priced between INR 1,500-4,000. They've also got Gollabhama and Mangalagiri sarees. Their home decor range is all about naturally dyed durries that can brighten up any room. Apart from these, their handmade jewellery collection is great to go with sarees. Soon they intend to launch readymade outfits for both men and women.
