Our mission

We are here to help brides in their saree/lehenga styling needs. Globalizing saree/lehenga styling is one of our goals, and we ensure brides access professional saree/lehenga styling and draping. 

We ship pleated sarees/lehenga dupattas all over the USA free of charge as the first step towards our mission. We trusted data and research before it became the buzzword du jour. 

To reduce the 1.2 billion tons of carbon emissions released by the fashion industry every year, we encourage our customers to reuse, re-drape sarees/lehengas and styling sarees from other’s’ closet before buying a new one. 

We empower the professional saree/lehenga drapists and stylists in every way possible to spread the saree vogue.
