Handlooms for your home

An ongoing handloom expo at the Ankit Handloom showrooms at Koti and Basheerbagh gives a glimpse of the ethnic stuff from different States.



SHOPPING BINGE: The special home décor handloom expo is the place to be.

WITH ID-UL-FITR fast approaching, marking the end of month-long fasting and beginning of celebrations, it is time to get set to go on a shopping binge. And now, `ethnic' being the buzz word in every facet of fashion — be it clothing, accessories or even home décor, with handlooms topping the list — here comes the right opportunity for you from Ankit Handlooms, one of the leading handloom houses in the State.

A `one-stop shop Ramzan special home décor handloom Expo' is currently being organised by the showroom. A variety of traditional, colourful and famous handloom works and handicrafts from about 15 States, is on display. Banjara mirror work of Gujarat and Rajasthan, Kutch work of Gujarat, wall pieces and hangings from Sholapur, patch works and cut works of Nagpur, carpets of Kashmir, Panipat bedsheets, Sindhi Kadal works, fur thread work of Madhya Pradesh, candle work on velvet from Kashmir, and other fascinating items of Punjab and Benaras are some of the highlights of the expo.

The complete range of home décor items includes a wide choice of over 1,000 varieties of covers (complete range of home and electronic appliances), bags, purses, wall decoratives, curtain cloth, diwan sets, bed sheets and baby kits.

The mind-boggling range also includes cushions, dining table mats, door mats, dressing table mats, laundry bags, mosquito nets, pillows, plastic mats, sofa backs, towels, table napkins, telephone mats, vegetable bags, et al. A special festive discount of 25 per cent on the actual price can be availed of. The expo is being conducted at Ankit Handloom House, Sultan Bazar, Koti and at Ankit Handlooms, opposite Gandhi Medical College, Basheerbagh.
