It's high time you start your Diwali shopping now. Make a stop at Uti Handlooms in Aundh, which is a gorgeous little studio in Aundh. Known for its exclusive collection of Maheshwari silk sarees, Uti specially curates all the collection from Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh. Meaning weaving in Sanskrit, Uti Handlooms curates its entire collection from the weavers and mills of Maheshwar. Contemporary yet traditional, these sarees are pure handloom. The range of these sarees is between INR 2,200 and INR 9,200, which makes it affordable (considering the high prices for handloom). As soon as you enter the store, you will find sections for sarees. The first section has sarees from INR 220 till INR 4,500. These pieces are traditional yet not heavy. If you have an office function or even a semi-formal event, these sarees are good to go. The next section comprises festive sarees. What caught my attention were the rich sarees with gheecha pallu and Narmada leher border. Perfect for fancy events and festivities, these traditional sarees are a must-have in your wardrobe. For those who prefer to keep it simple, they have an exclusive section for sarees in the shades of black, white, off-white, eggshell white and greys. If you want to slay at your workplace with traditional attire, these sarees will come to your rescue. Also, they have an aesthetic appeal to them. They have a dedicated section of dress materials as well. The material for these fabrics is either organza or Meheshwari cotton silk and you will find plenty of pieces in different colours with traditional block prints. I loved the 2-piece dress material that comes with a dupatta. Make an elegant statement at any function with outfits made from these stylish fabrics. They also have 3-piece dress material as well which comes with fabric for bottoms as well. The price for these starts at INR 1380. They also have a small section where you will find gorgeous cotton silk dupattas starting at INR 850. Available in different shades and hues, these dupattas are heavy and look gorgeous when paired with cotton silk dresses. The store plans to add more colours to their dupatta section as the pieces are limited as of now. I thoroughly enjoyed checking out the collection as I am a big fan of colours and rich Indian attires. If you are looking for something festive and under INR 10,000, check out this store.
