Teja Sarees

We often gawk at Teja Saree's Instagram page for major outfit goals. This designer outlet creates a wide range of sarees, lehengas, and fusion wear and is open to customisation as well. Taking orders both online and offline, it's usually swamped because of the unique collection it offers. Bright and funky sarees rub shoulders with Kanjeevaram Silk sarees. The colours are usually offbeat and it's tough to find those combinations in any other store. They also design saree blouses, and the price range depends on your choice and the detail of the work. 

Sri Narsingh Cloth Emporium

Our favourite clothing emporium — Narsing — has an outlet in Kukatpally and like its main branch, this one is also full of affordable (And quality) fabrics. It has Kalamkari sarees in multiple patterns and colours that start at INR 650 and Benaras Silk sarees that are priced INR 1,100 upwards. Since the store also stocks up on readymade blouses (Priced at INR 500 onwards), you can just pick a saree and blouse. And lo and behold, your outfit is ready.
