If you've coveted Indian ethnic-chic at stores like the Conran Shop in London or New York, here's your chance to buy the fabrics and crafts at one-tenth the price. Fabindia, founded by New York Macy's buyer John Bisell, sources its products from more than 7,500 craftspeople and artisans around India. Their distinctive use of handloom weaving techniques, natural dyes, and both vivid and earthy colors have made their products both fashionable and desirable. Do bear in mind that these fabrics usually require gentle hand washing and drip-drying. Also, sizing and quality are inconsistent, so it's best to try on any item of clothing before you buy. There are branch stores all over India as well as in Rome and Dubai.
Fab India has also extended its partnership to farmers from rural areas to bring to its customers a wide range of organic food of the highest quality. Don't forget to take some back with you!
