Kurtis have always been quite popular among women of all age groups. They are hassle-free, comfortable and come in a range of cuts and designs to suit every body type. Paired with leggings, churidars, jeans or salwars, kurtis form an essential part of every woman's wardrobe.
Just as with sarees, handloom kurtis from Bengal represent centuries of artistic tradition and weaving heritage. They signal the coming of age of the Bengali weavers - harnessing their artisanal skills to meet the evolving needs and tastes of the modern woman.
At Parinita, we bring an exclusive collection of handloom and handcrafted kurtis for women:
• Baluchari Kurtis: Silk kurtis from Bishnupur adorned with exotic baluchari weavings. The artistic weavings feature scenes and tales from ancient epics and religious texts.
• Kantha Kurtis: Cotton, silk or tussar kurtis decorated with intricate kantha embroidery from Shantiniketan. The hand-embroidered kantha work ranges from traditional floral-type patterns to modern, trendy designs.
• Jamdani Kurtis: Cotton and silk-cotton kurtis made from fabric woven using the dhakai jamdani style that Bengal is famous for. The jamdani weaving technique makes the floral patterns appear to float on the fabric, giving a mystical and charming look to the kurtis
These kurtis come in different sizes (M/L/XL/XXL) and cuts to suit a wide variety of body types.
