And, if you are looking to shop for some in the city, Purvi Handlooms in Andheri is one place to drop by.
The over-a-decade-old store stocks a variety of hand-woven fabrics, dupattas and saris that showcase beautiful prints and patterns made using traditional dying, weaving and print-making techniques. One of our favourite buys was their hand-painted Madhubani dupatta.
