HUES OF HERITAGE
I remember being part of an Indian Cultural Night at my college and being taught how to correctly (and securely!) tie my lehenga by who else but the lady who knew it best—the Indian aunty who serves up one of the heartiest vindaloo curries I’ve ever had, on campus. She spun me around, tucked this, tugged that, loaned me a bunch of her flash bangles, and I was good to go. She was amazing. And was what made me fond of the belly-baring swathes of intricately woven fabrics paired with an armful of shiny bangles that clashed to the rhythm of Bole Chudiyan.
Because we love the rich, bold colours and fabrics in these Indian ensembles, we're thinking...why not add a little spice to your ethnic wardrobe by shopping for your saree/lehenga/kurti/kurta right from the heart of India? You’ve probably never thought of it, or you have but are wary of the credibility of the sites. So, instead of feeling around in the dark, we’ve done a little legwork and listed the top 8 online saree stores that offer high quality sarees and have good return policies, just for your peace of mind.
