Kolkata-based start up Troyee is an online boutique for women's ethnic wear, and boy do we love their begumpuri sarees & hand embroidered blouses!
Begumpur, a small town in the Hooghly district, is famous for its saree weaving and known for the contrasting borders in red, black, purple, orange which are light weight & translucent. In Troyee's collectio you will find begumpuris in pure khadi, such as a grey & red one with black border highlighted by floral motifs. The borders are woven with designs of a variety of stripes and figured motifs, which is highlighted in a yellow & navy blue begumpuri.
Troyee's silk sarees are more than just a piece of yarn. Anyone draping these exquisite nine yards will earn themselves compliments from strangers too! We are referring to the kalamkaris handpainted with pens on chinnori silk. The sarees are adorned by gorgeous motifs based on rural, tribal and mythological lores. Want something less extravagant but elegant? The bomkai soft silk sarees with heavy thread work pallu might be the one you're looking for.
We totally dig their hand embroidered blouses in khadi fabric. Be it a ruffle neck half sleeve one, a checkered one or a printed noodle strap one, they can definitely be worn or styled in different ways. Check out the printed half sleeved bunan blouses if you are looking for a variety of options under thread embroidery work in ethnic motifs.
