Summer has been harsh this time, but we cannot escape the heat..how to keep the kids cool, how to dress them up for indoors and outdoor fun...is the question for all parents, every summer, during their vacation time.

Sarees and Dresses embroidered for Mom, kurta-pyjamas and Dhotis embroidered for Dad, along with the cutest Frocks, Lehengas and little Salwar suits for little girls, those cute cute Kurta-pyjamas for little guys offer a wide selection to satisfy all.
Maintainance was easy with light colors but with brighter and multi-colored patters appearing more in the market, washing them has become a trick. Hand washing is suggested for the bright and dark colored ones..pure cotton is the simplest, but the mixed-fabrics are creating bobbles and need a little more care. Price ranges from the most expected affordable to even the pricy numbers.
