As the weather changes, Cotton Fab, a lifestyle exhibition rolls out Kisan Bhawan offering summer wardrobe updates
The weather is getting warmer by the day and most of us would be packing up our woollens and making space for summer clothes. As you pull out your kurtas and tunics, do you end up frowning and fretting that there’s nothing worthwhile in your wardrobe to wear? And does news of an ongoing lifestyle exhibition lift your spirits in a minute? Well, we feel you. So here’s a look at what the ongoing ‘Cotton Fab’ exhibition brings for you. Take a look:
What’s on offer: Having held previous editions before, the organisers of Cotton Fab are well aware that women in the city love flowing fabrics, especially fine cotton (read mul-mul). There are plenty of options in that regard available here. Though, we didn’t find impressive options with matching dupattas, the running fabric (priced anywhere between Rs 80 to Rs 200) is a good buy.
Since summer is upon us, the exhibition also offers cotton fabrics like chikan and kota with some Kashmiri embroidered options as well. But the highlight is ikat and though the cost is higher compared to other fabrics, the quality of this handloom weave is good and the designs are contemporary. We really loved the dupattas. The good ones will set you back by Rs 2,500. Also a part of the exhibition line-up are cotton block-printed bedspreads (these are well priced and many varieties to choose from), imitation and stone jewellery, breezy cotton Chikan and linen kurtas for men, “flashy” designer wear suits in georgette and the likes, a stall catering to home furnishings with many options for cushions. We also liked the stall selling handmade earthenware under the brand ‘Mitti Cool’. The makers of the product claim food cooked in a mitti ki handi (they even have a cooker) is very good for health. While they offer handi, kadhai, tumblers, plates, bowls in various sizes, we liked the roti tawa and a new innovation – clay water bottle. The latter is best used to store water in your car. The clay products are pocket friendly too. The bottle will cost you Rs 300.
Where: Kisan Bhawan, Sector 35, Chandigarh
When: The exhibition is on till March 27
Time: 10.30am to 8.30pm
