Know the Richness of Indian Textiles

India, a country of more than a billion people, a land of diversity of cultures, people, languages and many more. Similarly, the diversity exists in textiles and related artwork as well.

Starting from the top to the bottom of India, you can clearly see how every region or state has their own traditional textile / handloom, which is being practiced for over 1000 years.

In the Northwestern side of India, beautiful handmade embroideries are a part of their rich culture and define their love for sunny and cheerful color combinations. We particularly love to use these embroideries in our products.

On the other hand, in the Northeast of India you can see how different types of silk and wool are prominent type of textiles, which not only are different in design, but also in the technique on which they are woven and articulated into intricate fabrics.

And when you go into the Himalayan range or the extreme North of India, you can see where the world famous authentic Pashmina is created, made out of a special type of wool which comes from a specific type of mountain goat found at the Himalayan valleys. Pashmina is not only known for its beauty and warmness but has a significant reference in the daily lives of the people from the Himalayas.

Deep in the South of India, the very famous Kanjivaram and Mysore silk is predominantly used in making the beautiful Indian couture called Saree, which represents a big part of our Indian culture and embodies the clothing of Indian women.

We at Happee believe in promoting these beautiful handlooms and handmade embroideries to be offered on a global platform. These forms of wearable art are not just types of fabrics, but they strongly represent the Indian culture and how diversity is a boon for Indian textiles.

*The Brazilian sizes are already converted in the Portuguese version of the website.

*Our ballerinas fit the foot comfortably. Mojaris, however, are a type of shoe which are naturally a little tighter, as they adjust to the foot upon wearing.

*This chart may vary a little from other charts, as there is no international standard for shoe sizes.

*In case you still have any doubts regarding your size, send us an email at info@iamhappee.com, we will revert back ASAP. :)
