Tri is a Kolkata based brand that features dresses, hair accessories, sarees, jumpsuits and scarves handcrafted completely out of the traditional gamcha for anyone looking to spice up their wardrobes this season. The pure cotton gamchas are originally sourced from Bangladesh and parts of Bengal, like Murshidabad and Beldanga.
A simple scarf gift to a friend which snowballed into a small brand, Tri became a reality when it launched on Facebook in 2016 by Tri Paul. Gamcha is a coarse cloth generally used as a towel, or cleaning the floors. Tri has innovatively converted the same cloth into fashion apparel and more. Everything is custom-made by local tailors in her workshop and made to order. It’s affordable, hand-made and eye-catching.
Tri is minimalist and fashionable all rolled into one. Ordinary and otherwise dejected plain gamcha is turned into beautiful Bong style blouses, summer dresses, and even jumpsuits to wear and flaunt. Colours range from sober to bright patchwork, and prints are generally checked. Our favourite picks are the gorgeous gamcha patchwork sarees, and comfortable cotton dresses and skirts. Tri's also planning to develop a collection of functional clothing that's perfect for daily and active lifestyle like dhoti pants, jumpsuits, cotton pants and more that are comfortable for walking or cycling too. An animal lover, she's also interested in expanding into pet accessories for our favourite furry family members.
Price: Gamcha Cotton Saree INR 2,500 onwards, Jumpsuit INR 1,200 onwards, Dresses INR 650 onwards, Masks at INR 60 onwards, Hair Accessories from INR 150.
