Go Green, Already!

I can never understand why green has been missing from my festive wear collection! There’s something Godly about a dark green that even black can’t match. This dupatta with Kasuti embroidery - Karnataka’s folk embroidery form - is perfect for those who like things simple and elegant.

Benarasi Beauty

From Lohri to Diwali, this georgette dupatta has got your festive back. What makes this dupatta an eye candy is, one, the beautiful buti work, and two, the heavy zari border. The only time blue and purple together doesn’t scare me. Ageless, right?

Pretty In Pink

Call me a 5-year-old, but pink is my favourite colour and don’t for once take it as a cliche. Find a colour it doesn’t compliment (I’ll wait!) A Maheshwari dupatta is the best choice to wear in the winter sun. What better than Lohri to inaugurate some sunshine, eh!

For The Love Of Bandhani

Bhandejh or bandhani is my favourite handloom for the boost of colour and confidence it gives me. Seriously, I’ve 6 of these. A cultural product of Rajasthan and Gujarat, this one with dyed effect and gota patti border is the ultimate puja accessory, of course with a cute little bindi.

The Bollywood Heroine!

While I’m writing the article, my bank is booking me for this oh-so-gorgeous yellow dupatta and this is the best kind of guilty shopping, I swear (context: shopping is my coping mechanism. I’m coping with a serious case of mid-week crisis!) Imagine a Yash Raj set for a party scene. Fits, doesn’t it?
