Get Diwali-Ready On A Budget With The Loot From Natraj Market In Malad

Shalvi posted on 29 October

Shortcut

There's hardly any time left for Diwali, and if you're looking at getting Diwali ready in an instant, you must head to Natraj Market in Malad West, just by the railway station to find the one-stop solution to all your festive shopping woes. From decorations for home to suits, sarees and gorgeous accessories for yourself {or to gift}, you will find everything here. Natraj Market is to the suburbs what Manish Market is to SoBo. It is actually a building that houses many shops and stalls selling clothes, accessories, footwear and more at very affordable prices.

Artificial Jewellery

Let's get over the regular Colaba Causeway and Linking Road loot because the collection at Natraj Market is giving all of them a tough competition. We came across many shops and stalls that are selling imitation jewellery for very cheap. A pair of earrings with beautiful embellishments can cost you INR 450 and upwards, while diamond or gold sets start at INR 1350. At the stalls, be sure to find the shop equivalents of earrings starting INR 150 onwards, necklaces INR 200 onwards and bracelets and bangles INR 50 onwards. Look out for those gorgeous coin necklaces and bracelets with pictures of goddesses on them.

Casual And Party Wear Kurtas

Can you imagine really comfy kurtas made from really good material and with some superb prints for just INR 250? We couldn't believe it either. But Natraj Market has surprised us and how! Many shops across Natraj Market sell these kurtas; you might even find the exact same kurta at another shop for slightly cheaper. For work or casual wear, you will find kurtas in vibrant colours and prints {including amazing tie and dye ones} starting INR 250 onwards, while the embroidered ones and those with heavier prints are priced INR 300 onwards. You will also find amazing embroidered palazzo pants for INR 500 approx.

Sarees, Blouses And Ghagra-Cholis

Walk deeper into the market and past the kurta shops, you will see the sudden change of clothes; they become more ethnic as you walk deeper. If you don't like the collection of ethnic wear outside the shops, just walk in to any shop and you will find a better collection. Ghagra cholis start at INR 3,000 approx. Bandhani and leheriya saris of good quality will cost you INR 650 and upwards. We chanced upon some pre-stitched blouses starting at INR 800 too! However, if you just want a custom made blouse, ask for the collection of dress materials they keep.

Michael Kors Rip-Offs

It's never too late or too early to buy a new bag, and we're sure you agree with us. If you're looking at something not ethnic, you can check out a few stores that sell some kickass rip-offs of famous brands like Michael Kors, Gucci, and more for cheap. Look out for sling bags starting at INR 500 while your regular, city bags starting at INR 750. They’re available in different shades, shapes and sizes.

Diyas

Diwali, being the festival of diyas unleashes the creative potential of many who make a variety of diyas; big and small. Multiple stalls outside Natraj Market sell diyas in plentiful {they're so beautiful}, and you might just want to get your hands on them {even though you've stocked them up at home}. From very simple diyas starting at INR 20 for a dozen {which you can paint yourself also} to the fancy diya thaalis starting INR 190 onwards, you will be spoiled for choice.

Wall Decor

If you're done shopping for the diyas, then let us introduce you to the stores that sell equally beautiful decorations. Walk into these shops and grab some beautiful torans, some even have battery operated lights for INR 150 and upwards. You can score wall and door hangings at INR 125 onwards too.

Pro-Tip

Don't sweat about prepping for Diwali, and follow our footsteps to getting Diwali-ready at Natraj Market, your one-stop shop for everything ethnic and more; just perfect for this festive occasion.
