Indrani is a very old name, but not many would have heard of it. They are into all kinds of silk and banarasi sarees. But we suggest you should drop in for their handloom collection. You will get a lot of cotton options to choose from as well, with machine and hand embroidery.

Shree Vishnu Sarees

Shree Vishnu Sarees near Rashbehari is famous for their Georgette and Rajasthani Kota saree collection. You will hardly find space to stand if there are 4 people inside the store. But you will get various options to choose from in varieties of silk, such as crepe, khadi silk, chanderi and jamdani among others.

Select Stores Exclusives

Visit Select Stores right on Deshapriya Park crossing if you are looking for a fine tussar collection. Their range of artificial tussar starts from INR 1,200, and the tussar silk starts from INR 2,500. And according to tradition, not having a tussar silk saree in a Bong's wardrobe is no less than a crime!

P Majumder

Staying in Kolkata, you must own a saree from P Majumder. Feel the light Bengal taant caressing you as you drape it around your waist, and wear it on any regular day. And the sarees will set you back by INR 550!


Score beautiful tie and dye sarees from Suparna. This is a store that is difficult to spot, and one that you accidentally discover while you are walking. Suparna is also an ideal place for affordable printed sarees (the chaapa sarees that we used to see our grandmothers wearing). Light sarees are their forte and you can browse their chiffon collection too, in case you are looking for a break from the usual fabrics.
