Handwoven Magic!


Whenever I think of cotton, what first comes to my mind is the scorching heat of the city! October heat, yes I know can be unbearable. Its that time of the year when you just want to sit indoors with your air conditioning on full blast with a cold glass of yummy lemonade in your most comfy PJ’s. Hopefully it won’t last too long and the cool nip in the air should be just around the corner.

In Mumbai, it never gets really chilly. Even during the peak of winter a light jacket is more than enough. Most of my wardrobe comprises of super soft and comfy cotton clothing to beat the heat as that’s what is most needed throughout the year!So when I walked into this popup event by Brasstacks Madras I was in for a joyride! The clothes by Brasstacks Madras were by far the best amalgamation of traditional crafts and hand woven fabrics into modern silhouettes and contemporary styles that I have seen in recent times. Each outfit was handcrafted with so much love and thought that it brought a huge smile on my face! The designer, Anaka lays huge emphasis on the fabrics, cuts,structure and movement of each garment. This is clearly evident from the jumpsuit which I’m sporting.This outfit is also a clear indication of my love for cotton, traditional prints and comfort with a fun, trendy yet sophisticated twist.

You can team it up with a formal jacket and heels for work, a scarf and flats with junk jewellery to bring out the boho vibe or keep it simple with just a good watch on your wrist and a cuff. The versatility of this jumpsuit is plentiful. You can check out their entire collection on www.brasstacksmadras.com. Trust me! It’s a great buy!

Until next time,
