Mivik not only brings to you a huge variety in prints but also allows you to customize each garment, making sure you carry your own style with a lot of ownership and pride!
Here are the top 3 Indian prints that we believe you should invest in :
- Bandhani or Bandhej Print
A timeless classic and a favorite of many many Indian generations of women now, Bandhani has the front seat when we talk of Indian prints. Multiple shapes of dots, squares, waves, etc. culminate into one array of a carefully tie and dyed Bandhani print. This print is so versatile that you can practically find garment options in the extremely light casual home-wear collection to extremely heavy partywear collection. This print never goes out of vogue and looks good on all body shapes, complexions and heights. This print is a favorite amongst foreigners who flock to Rajasthan and Gujarat to shop for it in the form of skirts, palazzos, etc. A bandhani kurta, gown or a saree is a must-have staple piece for every woman’s ethnic wardrobe. Here is a glimpse of this majestic Indian art:
- Bagru Print
Popularised first by Rajasthanis, this print is very organic to Indian textile art. Right from the use of beautiful coloured dye to wooden blocks used for imprinting designs onto a fabric, the whole process is an absolute meticulous affair for the craftsmen.
This print is popular in even bedsheets and pillow covers. A Bagru print kurta/crop-top can lend you that eclectically classy ethnic appeal in just about no time! The print looks rich, rare and suits most Indian women alike. There’s no way you can don a Bagru printed dress or a kurta and get no compliments!
- Golden block print
And lastly, the most commonly seen, worn and loved – golden print! This print has made its way to curtains, bedsheets, carpets, skirts, dresses, sarees, tops and even lehengas. Local craftsmen create authentic golden prints of leaves and other nature-inspired things on a variety of dark and light-colored fabrics. Golden block prints look best when done on colors like navy blue, red, brown, black, magenta (or fuschia), bottle green and deep purple. You get a huge variety of golden prints today but at Mivik, we bring to you the most cherry-picked collection to ensure that you flaunt confidently each garment you wear!
