So it looks like Pujo is (almost) here again, and the humid weather will call for light cottons and silks. Attire Zone does easy-breezy sarees and dressy ones, perfect for festive occasions. Best part? They also do readymade blouses and a range of jewellery. So you can walk out with a complete outfit.
It's a small store but you will find handpicked sarees that you won't get elsewhere. Cottons, linens, tussars, matka, linen silk, Benaras silk, Gadwals, Pochampallis - they stock every kind. Owner Suparna Purkayastha can often be found inside looking through a book or attending to customers — always clad in a stunning handloom sari herself. She travels around visiting handloom centers around India at least seven to eight times in a year to source the saris. And the prices won’t make your wallets cry. The breathable, light cottons in pastels, checks and eye-popping solids with contrasting borders start from around INR 750. The shop also stocks the typical red and white Bengal sarees.
Attire Zone also does readymade blouses in different styles to go with the saris. Starting from around INR 1,200, these are available in cotton and rich silks. Look for clean everyday work wear sarees, which you can pair with bright and colourful printed cotton blouses. You can also pair up your sari with their range of jewellery in silver and ceramics.
