Rithihi.

Rithihi is a one-stop shop for traditional handwoven saris. The saris are brought from different states in India, which is an interesting way to shop. Each sari is one of a kind.

The Collection 

I’m no sari scholar, but I can safely say they have quite a selection. We’ll go by region and let the pictures tell the story. To start, there were saris from Kanchipuram, both the rich traditional silks (Rs. 30,000+) and the Kanchi cottons.

They’ve also got plain colored Kanchi saris.

Below are the beautiful and bright Uppada saris from Andra Pradesh (Rs. 55,000+).


Another highlight were the Kantha saris which take six months to complete, and cost a premium.

They also have Beneras silk cottons (Rs. 8,000+), raw silk tussor (Rs. 15,000+), tussor ikat (Rs. 19,000+), Jamdani muslin from Bengal (Rs. 27,000+), Bhagalpur tussor from Bihar (Rs. 14,000+), etc. We’re honestly not too familiar with these different fabrics and styles, but when you hear their stories and traditions explained you begin to see them as wearable works of art.

They also have quite affordable options, like simple Bengal cottons for Rs. 2,500+.

There’s also a lot of options suitable for office, like Lucknow silks (Rs. 30,000+) and Lucknow Georgette (Rs. 4,000+, picture above).

Besides items from the Indian states, they have saris from Sri Lankan designers such as Nithya and Asanka Godagama.

Accessories

It’s not just saris here, Rithihi has a selection of necklaces, bangles, earrings and clutches. Note that the proceeds from the ‘Kadambari’ collection goes to the Sunera Foundation – a charity organization . 

They also have 100% natural soaps, shower gels, body lotions, massage oils and body salt.

Upstairs there’s a selection of duppattas (long shawls) and stoles upstairs. You can also find bed covers, cushion covers,  designer made kurtha tops and tunics upstairs.

 

Conclusion

If you’re into traditional handwoven saris from India, this is the spot. There are many types of saris from rich silks to simple cottons, with prices that vary accordingly.
