Instead of cribbing about lack of content I decided to do something constructive and useful. I have decided to start a website review segment reviewing the Made in India websites which I have tried in the past, showcasing their positives and highlighting their negative aspects. This is not a sponsored post and every opinion is my own.
My first site review is a treasure I found roughly a year back called Hands Of India. Interestingly I spoke about it in one of my first posts way back in June of last year.
This website was started by two sisters from Uttar Pradesh who are providing this platform for artisans from rural areas to showcase their handicrafts. This is what their website has to say about their efforts.
“HandsOfIndia” showcases the timeless creations made by the humble artisans of our country who are largely unaware of the real worth of their products, especially in a marketplace cluttered with mass produced replicas. This name signifies the skill and painstaking handwork of the craftspeople and the fact that these products are created using simple, natural techniques relying solely on the accumulated knowledge of generations of artisans and the skill of the human hand. It reaffirms our love for all things handmade.
I have ordered their products once online and I have been to their exhibition once and I was so thrilled with the outfits, the quality and the fit and comfort. They have a wide variety. I have tried to capture the essence of their collection here below.
Reversible Jackets (my personal favorite 😍)
Incidentally this was one of my buys from their website too!!
The comfort is unmatched guys 😀
Sarees: They have a wide variety of sarees in cotton and silk. I’m definitely thinking about buying one of these for my mum. What do you think 🙂
Majorly eyeing this one! I’m a sucker for anything yellow and pink! And about that, Saree I’m not sorry! Lel!
Dresses: They have different types of dresses you can choose from:
This dress felt like made to order on me. While they don’t a wide range of sizes (S-M-L) the ones available are very standard and feel comfortable.
Kurtas and Salwars: Their kurta range is one segment I’m yet to try! A picture of some kurtas I’m eyeing 😝
When it comes to salwar sets they frankly outdid themselves. Let me explain. I purchased a salwar off one of their exhibitions. It was pretty loose for me so they happily agreed to alter it for me for free. When I went back to collect my altered salwar set the kind lady told me she had mentioned in detailed the alterations done on the cover which she asked me to safekeep. She also asked me to mention the same alterations every time I bought salwars off their website online! How thoughtful is such customization 🙂 I was so impressed!
The salwar I bought is such a beautiful pastel green. I wear it for any formal event at work, for meetings and interviews and it has never failed to get me a compliment or two 🙂
Apart from they also have a lovely collection of culottes, skirts, palazzo pants in pure khadi cotton.
The only minus point I have to point about this website is that more than once I’ve really loved a piece but have been unable to buy it because of they don’t have all clothes in all sizes.
Overall I have had an awesome experience with this clothes line and I am surely going back to buy from them real soon and I would strongly recommend this site to all my Indian friends 😀 Do check out their website (click here) and their facebook page (click here)
