Ten-Second Takeaway

We found pretty prints and more beautiful stuff at this small stretch crowded by shops selling fabrics. In case you like getting your clothes stitched, please head here.

What To Buy

If you’re ever been on Khar-Danda road, chances are that you already have noticed a well-lit, colourful stretch of shops selling fabric. We went there and fell into fabric heaven.

The stretch houses four shops – Glanz Fabrics, Saroj Fabrics, Fan Designer Collection and Niharika Designer Fabrics & Suits. Now, we strolled and inquired at all four about their cotton fabrics, designer lehenga fabrics and chikan fabrics as well. The prices at all four are more or less the same. Printed cotton fabrics start at INR 200 a meter. You’ll find quirky designs that you can easily turn into table cloth, cover a drab sofa with it or make lampshades out of it.

You also get the prettiest of fabrics for lehengas, shararas and salwar kameez. You’ll find everything from blingy sheesha work to a more subtle gota work. If you’re looking to get a bridal lehenga under INR 10,000 and want to evade the usual heavy stuff, check out these shops. There’s also blouses pieces and Niharika Designer Fabrics & Suits currently is selling some blouse pieces for INR 50 and INR 100.

So, We're Saying...

Hate the unnecessarily heavy, ready made lehengas in the market? This stretch will provide some relief to those who like to keep it classy. Gaudy was never in, anyway.
