Regal Indian Clothing At CraftsVilla

Friends and relatives living abroad have always told me about how difficult it is to find Indian outfits where they stay and even when they do, items are crazy expensive and there's very little variety to choose from. This got me looking for online stores stocking ethnic Indian fashion that ship internationally and I discovered Craftsvilla - a marketplace to "Discover Unique Indian Products". As I browsed the site, I was impressed to find a wide range of Indian ethnic outfits, jewelry, menswear, home decor and much more including handmade, organic and natural products from India.

Craftsvilla is the largest Indian online ethnic store and has a rich collection of clothing for both men and women. Besides apparel, they also have jewelry, bags and skincare. Since products are sourced from all over the country, their site connects local artisans and designers to global customers, making unique handcrafted products accessible to people all around the world. 

Lehengas

The lehenga is believed to have originated in the Mughal era when it was considered as a royal outfit.  It is essentially a three-piece ensemble which consists a long skirt, a fitted cropped blouse, known as a choli and a long scarf like garment called the dupatta. Since the lehenga is a very elegant and stylish garment, it is a popular choice for weddings or festive occasions like Diwali and Navratri and lehengas are usually made with rich luxurious fabrics in vivid colors, intricate embellishments and eye catching silhouettes to make the wearer look like a queen. Here are some really stunning lehengas from Craftsvilla that caught my eye  - 




Salwar Kameez 

Salwar Kameez or suit (as it's called in India) is the most popular and commonly worn Indian garment. This outfit consists of a long tunic called the kameez, trouser like bottoms called a salwar and the same long scarf like garment known as the dupatta. This versatile outfit is worn almost all over India, and is known for it's comfort and modest design. There are various styles of Salwar Kameez, with some being worn with fitted bottoms known as chudidars, some with palazzo style bottoms and ones with a grand flared frock style top. The salwar kameez is also worn by North Indian women of certain communities for their weddings. What makes this outfit a preferred choice of women across the nation is the fact that it can be worn for both casually, work and for special occasions.  Here are some really elegant and stylish salwar kameez sets I liked on Craftsvilla - 




Sarees

 The saree is the most iconic Indian garment which can be recognized instantly. A saree is made of a single piece of fabric which can be between five to nine yards long. It is worn by wrapping one end around the waist and the other draped over the shoulder and is worn with a blouse and a petticoat to hold the bottom in place. Designed like a one shouldered gown worn with a blouse, this garment has stood the test of time and remains extremely popular among women for its elegance and figure flattering silhouette. There are various different types of sarees worn across different regions of India and there are numerous ways to drape a saree. From Craftsvilla, I loved these amazing sarees and the unique saree blouse designs they have - 



As you can see, Craftsvilla has really classy Indian ethnic wear which can be worn for various occasions. The best part is that they ship worldwide so you can get yourself an ethnic outfit no matter where in the world you are! I loved their designs and am sure you will too!
