Ten-Second Takeaway

At Ganesh Textiles in Dadar, we found funky fabric to not only upholster an old sofa, but even give to a tailor to make some of the funkiest dresses, jumpsuits, kurtas, or anything else.

What To Buy

Tired of seeing the same dress prints at stores? If you like the idea of getting a dress stitched to your specifications, this piece fits right into your summer dress goals with its gorgeous, Wes Anderson-y wallpaper vibes. If you choose to take a leap, it can be turned into a scarf as well. You know, to go with that blue denim dress you already have.

This tribal print fabric is coaxing us to get a long skirt stitched. With a side slit, it will totally amp up our wardrobe game. Pair it with a black or white crop top with junk jewelry, and voilĂ .

Ever looked at a pattern long enough that it starts looking like an optical illusion? This piece with this tripped-out flower pattern is ideal to make cushion covers or pillow covers if your bedsheet is too plain for your taste.

A pattern as alluring as this would make for an unusual lamp shade that will set tongues wagging. Eclectic and graceful, one can also use it to make a kurta to pair up with a Patiala salwar. Festival season is up ahead anyway so why not?

Can’t do much about your walls or go crazy with your creativity ideas on them {’cause the landlord doesn’t allow modifications}? Get hold of this fabric and upholster your sofa with it to say bye to boring decor. Throw in a few plain cushions to balance it out.

The coming together of different colours signifies one thing – versatality. When paired with anything plain, this piece can brighten up a dull and mundane space/outfit in seconds. It can even be used to make a wacky jacket or a comfy T-shirt.
