It was high time we upgraded our ethnic wear wardrobe. But since going out is still risky, we surfed online and stumbled upon Kolkata-based boutique called Dheu.
Find a wide range of sarees, kurtas, dhotis and jewellery for men, women and kids available in all kinds fabrics, colours and prints. They also stock a really cool range of graphic printed tees representing Bengali quotes and culture. The collection of sarees and cotton kurtas particularly have our heart because there are so many pretty and unique designs to choose from.
Silk, khadi, linen, Baluchari, Kanchipuram, Bengal handloom, kantha, jamdani, opara, gorod, Benarasi, Bhagalpuri silk, bandhani, mulmul - they've got sarees in all these fabrics and prints as well as ones with applique work done on them. Even the kurtas have nice Bengali motifs and quotes printed on them. We loved the one with diya applique done on it as well as a green coloured one with applique work in the shape of an ekatara (a folk musical instrument) and calligraphy writing of poet Rudra Mohammad Shahidullah’s song 'Amar Vitoro Bahire' in Bengali. The collection is perfect for all kinds of occasions especially festivals like Durga Puja or Diwali.
Match the outfits with their range of silver jewellery for both men and women - rings, ear studs, bangles, oxidised pendants and anklets. They've also got pure silver accessories like photo frames and coins at affordable rates.
But if it's t-shirts that you're looking for, then browse through their range of Bangla graphic printed ones with quotes, poems and songs written on them in Bengali.
Prices start at around INR 500.
