Presented in an ethnic way, the exhibition-cum-sale is surely bound to catch your attention and tempt you to at least take a look at the apparels, if not buy them. Right from carpets to bed sheets, shawls to sarees, you will get fabrics dyed in indigo.

In the handloom section, silk and cotton readymade clothes, saris, shawls, scarves, dupattas, kurtas, shirts, printed table linen and intricately designed cushion covers are sure to steal your heart.

You can also adorn your house with handicrafts such as blue pottery, terracotta lamps and other terracotta products.

Done in silk crepe, the stoles that come in a variety of delicate designs have subtle shading and are chic. Clutches are designed in delicate motifs on the sides with zari work on them, making them perfect to flaunt at any traditional event.

Also available are deep blue kurtas and sleeveless printed jackets, to attract the young crowd. Apart from clothes, the exhibition also displays a wide collection of ethnic jewellery to match the kurtas and saris.

Sushanth Mukherjee, assistant general manager of CCIE said, “Indigo has been used in India for a long time. Indigo is both a natural colour as well as chemical formulation. Products made of natural indigo are considered a prized possession. Therefore, we are having an exhibition of products made of indigo in Bangalore.”
The price of indigo products, at the exhibition, begin from as low as Rs 200 and goes up to Rs 20,000.

“Some of the products on display are rare. These are not available at any other store in Bangalore. I‘m thrilled about the exhibition,” said Sheetal Jain, a visitor to the exhibition.

The MG Road outlet will be open from 10 am to 7 pm while the HSR outlet will be open from 11 am to 8 pm.
