We found this brand online and loved how they portray our city, its culture, music and soul through their range of beautiful and innovative sarees sure to make you stand out in the crowd.
Owned by brother-sister duo Sandip and Gouri Saha, Naksh stocks a super creative collection of printed sarees, stoles, blouses and kurtas for men - all of it made in handspun cotton, silk and chanderi perfect for casual, office or occasion wear. The designs are inspired by the city’s culture, music, movies, nature and love for the one and only Rabindranath Tagore. Basically, everything that makes you happy and that you identify with - from your childhood memories and matribhasha (mother tongue) to your hobbies and ideologies.
Gouri designs all the prints herself, narrating stories of Bengal’s past and present through them. Naksh only does hand-block, screen and digital prints. No embroidered stuff. Revisit your roots with their saree that’s got all the 22 spoken languages of India written in their respective scripts. Men, you’ll get the same design done on your kurtas as well. Get a glimpse into Tagore’s world through their saree with the Nobel laureate’s doodled script printed on it. It’s said that Tagore did not like striking across words or phrases while composing poems or prose. So, he would join them and create decorative patterns or zoomorphic shapes. Sounds cool, right?
Best part? They exhibit their products through people from all walks of life who are comfortable wearing a saree. Doesn’t matter what size, height, gender and age you are.
Prices for sarees start at INR 1,950 and go up to INR 6,900. Stoles, blouses and kurtas start at INR 1,500.
