Sanskriti Kolkata began its journey 25+ years ago. Firstly, they focus on traditional fabrics like pure handloom, pure cotton & pure silk & tussar. As a matter of fact, sarees are created with ethnic Indian designs. The designs are done using different types of embroidery – zari booti, kantha stitch and phulkari. Further prints such as block prints are also done on sarees.They also stock salwar suit pieces & Kurtis.
