What Makes It Awesome?

Redefining the style for clutches, potlis and juttis, Ara is where you shop for bags for all occasions. From simple printed to clutches with elaborate work, this store’s creation is also loved by celebrities. Need more reasons to shop from here? Read on. 

The brainchild of two passionate designers, Rashmi and Sayli, Ara Studio has been adorning wardrobes and entire ensembles of women for the past five years. The duo, who bring their unique skill set to the venture, have been successful in making all their customers happy. Sayli, who has learnt product designing and Rashmi who has learnt about textile manufacturing, both of them combine this to make a unique design.

Ditching the idea of mass manufacturing, the studio focuses on customisation and curation of one-of-a-kind designs. Their potlis, clutches and juttis are all handcrafted by craftsmen who have been working in this field for the past 20 years and even more. The potlis and the clutches are made from the finest quality of silk sourced and dyed exclusively for the studio. The designs and visions of the team are later converted into a beautiful piece of accessory with the help of the ‘magicians’, as they like to call their karigars.

There are a number of different styles in the clutches as well. You will find a number of them in solid and pastel colours. There are also a major number of embellished clutches with floral designs. You will also find a number of clutches with fringes and also sequins. The studio prides itself on the quality and durability of the product. In comparison to the quality of the products that they offer, the prices are relatively lesser. You can get a designer clutch starting at INR 2,500. The store also makes potlis for gifting purposes. You can get these potlis for INR 1,000. 

Along with clutches and potlis, the store also has a beautiful collection of juttis. They source these juttis from their own manufacturing unit in Jaipur. This definitely ensures the finest quality of footwear for you starting at INR 2,500. There are some juttis that are matching to the clutches as well as potlis

They are currently catering to orders through their Facebook, Instagram as well as their website. If you would rather take a look at the collection physically, you can visit their studio on S.B. Road. However, make sure that you give them a call before you visit here.

What Could Be Better?

We wouldn’t change a thing about the brand however, we would really be interested to see them venture a little bit into men’s accessories as well.
