What Makes It Awesome

Tamarind Chutney, as the name suggests, is a sweet and spicy mix of contemporary designs and traditional weaves. Born from a vision to empower Indian artisans and craftsmen while creating beautiful apparel, Tamarind Chutney hits all the right notes when it comes to fusion wear with a ‘hipster-like’ vibe to it. 

The label is definitely more than just pretty clothes. They are committed to preserving India’s rich craft heritage and working with artisans to ensure meaningful improvement in their livelihoods. As local as it gets, yep. Their short tops (call them crop tops if your will) are so cool and I mean literally so! Fancy a Kala Namak (you read that right) top? A fun and fuss-free upperwear in ajrakh print that would go really well with a long skirt for a breezy look. Natural dyes are used to print one side of this garment. But Tamarind Chutney tells me that the mark of a genuine ajrakh is that the print should be visible on the other side as well. So don’t forget to confirm that the next time you have an ajrakh print in hand. Their Bahaar Unisex Block Printed Tee is so pleasing to the eye, I can only imagine how comfortable it would feel on my skin. Another one that caught my eye is the Faiz Ikat Shirt. This one ticks off all boxes that I usually look for while shopping for my husband. It’s perfect for summers plus the ikat gives an appropriate work from home look. Goes well with their beautiful mul cotton ties too.

What Could Be Better

Call me greedy but a few more options to choose from both in men and women's sections wouldn't hurt. Pretty please?


Online pictures don't cut it? Well, you can sign up for a sample on their website and they'll send you swatches of fabric from their collection. So you can touch and feel the fabric, right from the comfort of your home before you order the garment.
