The next generation of the founders have started a retail line such as kurtis and short dresses in handloom fabrics. They are called the Anshu & Navneet collection. The kurtis are certainly stylish and contemporary.  Even more amazing is the fact that simple elegant designs in handloom printed fabrics are distinct. While some kurtis are in simple deisgns, we found a few pieces with glitzy collars and necklines. They could  be similar to an ideal evening wear outfit.
