Tradition with a Twist – Phulkari Collection by BIBA

Literally translated as ‘floral work’, ‘Phulkari’ refers to an indigenous technique of embroidery from the Punjab region of India and Pakistan. Essentially consisting of floral and geometric motifs in bright, brilliant colours, this attractive embroidery is deeply embedded in the folk art traditions of Punjab. BIBA’s gorgeous Phulkari Collection takes inspiration from this classic yet quirky art that is at once, strikingly vibrant and ornate.

Consisting of kurtas, suit sets, and dupattas, BIBA’s Phulkari Collection is a veritable feast for the eyes. Traditionally, base materials in vivid reds, oranges, and pinks were used for this folk art. In keeping with the lively spirit of Phulkari, BIBA offers these Phulkari-inspired outfits in deep purple, fuchsia pink, and flaming orange. The kurtas and suit sets are available in sizes ranging from 32-46. Adept at fusing the traditional with the trendy, BIBA’s Phulkari kurtas and Phulkari suit sets for women are available in a range of modish fits such as Anarkali, flared, and straight. The fabric designs on offer include dyed and printed.

The various sleeve styles including short, full and three quarter sleeves on the kurtas and suit sets make them suitable for nippy winters as well as sultry summers. An appealing quality of these outfits is the variety of necklines they feature, namely; band collar, collar neck, round and V-necklines. Neck designs are important as they don’t just define the look of the outfit, they even determine what accessories are to be paired with it.

Embossed with Phulkari-inspired prints, BIBA’s Phulkari kurtas for women may be paired with denims, and leggings for a chic Indo-western look. Since the kurtas are already bright and feature quirky prints, accessorizing should be subtle. Stick to silver bangles, tiny silver hoops and mojris for an elegant yet eye-catching look. Exude ethnic glamour by teaming a Phulkari suit set from this collection with Kolhapuri sandals and colourful linked bangles. A tiny bindi and a French braid will further elevate your style quotient. The Phulkari dupattas in this collection are great for adding that much needed zing to plain vanilla white and black salwar suits. They may even be teamed with short kurtis and denims for a smart Indo-Western look. Just buy a BIBA Phulkari dupatta online and you’ll be amazed at how it’ll give a new lease of life to any ordinary, modest outfit.

Born out of a wedlock between ethnic folk art and contemporary fashion dictates, the vibrant Phulkari Collection bears testimony to BIBA’s ever-expanding efforts to blaze a trail in Indian fashion. Go ahead, follow the trail with a Phulkari outfit from biba.
