What Makes It Awesome

Sarees are great options for all occasions whether you’re heading to a family lunch or prepping for a work meeting. We found a small saree boutique in South Kolkata that sells them at both wholesale and retail rates. So go ahead, get a jump-start on saree shopping.

Ektu Alada (literally meaning "a little different") is a small, unassuming store near Rashbehari Avenue. We stumbled upon it and fell in love with the breezy cotton sarees (perfect for summers). From woven jamdanis to temple-border red and white typical Bengal sarees, their range is high on comfort. For a touch of whimsy, check out the ones with pom-poms on the anchal and pallu.

If you like a pop of colour, their silks are good to amp up your ethnic look. Pick up a six yard drape in silk with contemporary squares - and make a statement with ease. These are perfect choices for attending a festive occasion, parties or a special dinner out. Prices are easy on your pocket (they offer prices at both retail and wholesale rates) and start from around INR 800.

What Could Be Better

The space is really small and a tad unkempt.


They also sell their sarees on their FB page in case you don't want to travel all the way to their store.
