Following the footsteps of their incredibly popular cousins of the edible kind, saris done in Chettinad style, raid the city again. And this time with a vengeance.

Chettinad saris epitomise India's textile tradition. Once very popular with the dhobi community of Tamil Nadu, these saris were done in basic vegetable colors like red, blue and green. Today, though, they have assumed dazzling hues of very fathomable color. Chequers and gold stripes are dominant and the saris are woven from pure cotton threads or a blend of cotton and silk.

95, Parklane celebrates this tradition with a mela dedicated to it. The saris are priced between Rs. 660 and Rs. 2,500. The organiser is Mrs. Sreedevi who is from Chettinad herself, and handpicks the saris that make their way here.

You can also find the regular Mangalagiri, Narayanapet, Kota, Venkatagiri, Pochhampalli, Kalamkari and Jaipur prints saris at Tara's. Dress material for salwar suits is priced between Rs. 780 and Rs. 1,500. Accessories like terracotta jewelry from Bangalore, priced between Rs. 90 and Rs. 500, and oxidized white metal jewelry between Rs. 200 and Rs. 350, can also be seen. Vegetable-dyed Jaipuri dupattas are available at Rs. 225, while Tusser silk dupattas are priced at Rs. 1,200.
