Is traditional dressing making a comeback in India?

After globalisation, our fashion sense also showed rapid progression due to the influence of the world wide web. We modernised traditional sarees, Kurtis, pyjamas and other traditional Indian clothing into something or perhaps everything western.

However, over the due course of time, the revival of old traditional clothing is highly noticeable.

We have enlisted 5 of the top most traditional clothing we have observed being snapped back in trend:

1) Khadi

The native Indian cloth item which revolutionised during the Indian colonial period is back in trend. Being a very versatile and adaptable fabric, it is being used as the uniform material for certain schools and colleges.

Sarees, Kurtis, Salwar, Shirts and pants are the wide variety of clothing items that are available in Khadi.

In spite of being a little tough on the money pocket, its durability and versatility is remarkable enough to bring it back in trend.

2) Salwar Kameez

Mostly popular in the northern region, it dropped out of trend when jeans and capris came in style and took over a large bourgeoise society. Salwar kameez was mostly forcefully worn by high school girls as their uniform.

It is a delight to see salwar kameez back in trend. Customised traditional salwar kameez is worn to parties, wedding sangeet and many other such occasions.

Its uniqueness and wide variety of styling brought it back in trend.   

3) Nehru Jackets

Listed among the top global political fashion statements of all times by the Time Magazine, is one of the most trending jackets in today’s time.

Coming in different shades, textures and cloth quality, it goes hand in hand with Kurtas and add vibrancy to the whole get up.

Mostly popularised by our now prime minister, Nehru jacket helps maintain the culture as well as groom the upcoming generation trendily.

Nehru jackets, being the perfect fusion between history and modern elements will be trending longer than expected.

4) Dhoti

Not very common in casuals but certainly, Dhoti is back in occasional wear and for special days. Different fabrics and unique modernised styles of Dhoti is making it popular amongst the youth.

In a costume or any special family occasion, Dhotis come with pre-styled Kurtas that when adorned, look astonishingly amazing.

The comfort that it provides, its simplicity and traditional touch bring it back in trend.

5) Lungi

Natively worn by south Indians, Lungi combined with shirts is highly trending. If we went back a year or so, publicly appearing in lungi would have been a little weird but not anymore.

Lungi is available in a variety of designs and cloth options.

Neither is it just comfortable but also very easy to wear. Lungi perfect helps bring our tradition to glory and also helps inevitably in preserving it.

The variety in they styling is why lungi is back in trend.

So, these old traditional Indian wears are looking at a huge revival and have managed to make their own place in our hearts!

Name The Collection

Herringbone Design

Our resident designer and founder, Arti, has used local fabrics, hand woven by weavers in Jharkhand to create a new collection of Jackets for summer of 2017.

These fabrics possess the classical herringbone design which is one of the most popular cloths used for suits. Herringbone, also called Broken Twill Weave describes a distinctive V-shaped weaving pattern usually found in twill fabric. It is distinguished from a plain chevron by the break at reversal, which makes it resemble a broken zigzag. The pattern is called herringbone because it resembles the skeleton of a herring fish.

Arti has used linen as her base fabric with herringbone design to ensure it can comfortably be worn throughout summer. The Jacket is available in two colors, steel grey and beige and is priced at Rs. 2899/-
