ALL in one



A delightful range of Indian handicrafts

ANOTHER SUPERSTORE has joined the bandwagon of mega lifestyle stores in Bangalore. Called Saga, on Promenade Road, it offers a range of handicrafts and lifestyle products.

A store that offers everything under one roof, Saga is spread over three floors and stocks branded clothing, designer salwar kameez, kurtis, accessories, gift items, carpets, furniture, and handicrafts.

The ground floor showcases garments. While there are brands such as Daks and Hidesign, other garments are designed by in-house designers. Kurtis for men and women include both formal and casual wear. An extensive range of shawls, in varieties of Pashmina, graces a section. These come in hand painted, embroidered (in needlework of silk threads), and Kashmiri weave styles, priced between Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 1 lakh for the heavy Jamavar embroideries. Women can choose from a range of delicate sequined stoles in beautiful styles, fabrics, and colours, ranging between Rs. 1,500 and Rs. 7,000. There are handmade sequined handbags (Rs. 5,000) to go with these. There is also a range of saris.

Another floor has hand-woven Indian carpets. Apart from the floral and geometric designs, there are unusual ones with themes such as wars. This floor also showcases furniture in silver and Minakari work.

Following a European trend, Saga follows a colour pattern even in its display. One can also pick up from here a mélange of Indian handicrafts (jewellery boxes, brass/copper/ silverware, mirrors, fruits bowls etc.), papier-mâché products from Kashmir, decorative figurines, and so on. Home accessories include cushion covers, bedspreads, curtains, table covers, tablemats, and napkins. The store also has a range of imported gift sets containing personal accessories and books on India travel and cuisine.

Saga can be contacted at 5574480/81.
