Delhi shopping Places – Fabindia @ GK N Block Market
Salwars, kurtis & Jackets
A fine retail store for ready-made garments at affordable prices. Hand-woven and hand printed textiles is the USP of this exporter-turned-domestic retailer. Traditional craft-based techniques, natural dyes and contemporary designs lend an authentic look and feel to the salwar-kameez, skirts, tunics, shorts, stoles, churidars, Patiala-style salwars, dupattas, jackets, shirts and saris that are stocked in plenty. You can pick up a chic skirt and top with traditional Indian block print – it gives a modern, yet ethnic touch to the dress. Long and short kurtas with beautiful ethnic prints in a variety of colours and textures are a great attraction. Kurtas in mull (very soft cotton) with (vegetable dye block printing technique prints, in linen with exquisite embroidery and in silk and Chanderi cotton are all breathtakingly beautiful. Match them with normal salwars, churidars or Patiala salwars. They have a huge selection of dupattas available in Chanderi cotton, cotton, silk and wool.
True saree lovers will love the stunning Chikan, Tussar and Maheshwari saris in woven silk and cotton prints, even though the prices are steep -upwards of Rs. 5000 per sari.
