FOO REVIEW – ITOKRI – A GREAT PLACE TO BUY GORGEOUS HANDCRAFTED TEXTILES AS GIFTS

GORGEOUS HANDCRAFTED TEXTILES

Handcrafted gifts are so in these days. They are gorgeous, unique and last for quite a while. Handcrafted textiles have a different feel. They talk about you, your personality and your aura.

GORGEOUS HANDCRAFTED TEXTILES

Last week, I ordered this beautiful white dupatta (large shawl to wear over Indian wear mostly) for a friend as she loves handcrafted items. When iTokri approached me to order something from their website and review it, I thought of her immediately.

ORDERING PROCESS

The process of selecting an item was quite a task because I wanted to order everything. Once the selection was made, the payment got done in less than a minute. This was followed by a confirmation email from them. Yup, that easy!

RECEIVING THE ITEM

The item took around a week to arrive. I liked the recycled box (covered with newspaper) in which it was packed. A nice ‘plantable’ notepad was included in the box. It is too cute to be put in the mud, so let’s see once I’m done with it.

USAGE OF THE ITEM

You can wear this dupatta with anything. Like my friend has worn it with her light teal coloured kurti top paired with a white churidar pant. She added some gorgeous jhumkaas to the look and completed it with a pair of juttis.

It was only fitting for her to give the product review.

“I love it! This is a beautiful cotton dupatta with applique work (decorative needlework where patches of material are cut into designs and stitched on a larger fabric to form a pattern). The work on the dupatta’s border and the motifs are gorgeous. This goes with many of my chikankari kurtis. It was quite stiff at first, but it softened once I washed it.”

CONCLUSION

While I was going through their website, I went crazy. I mean the earrings were so pretty, the bedcovers so colourful and the bags had neat designs. I definitely recommend this website to all the handloom lovers, too. They deliver all over India, at your doorstep. So, yeah, I think it’s time to gift yourself something new, namely some gorgeous handcrafted textiles!

    Oh yes. i loved the dupatta. Thank you Cindy for such a lovely surprise from iTokri.
    The applique work on the dupatta’s border and the motifs are hand stitched. The work is patched completely with hand stitching and is excellent – very neatly done. While white is a classic & one of my favourites, iTokri also has many lovely designs in self and contrast colors. This quality of applique work dupattas are not easily available elsewhere.
