Shrirampura cotton market-Heaven for cotton and textile lovers

We, craft lovers and designers, keep on searching for  materials for craft and designing . In this age of competition always the quality and reasonable price are the factors make the product to win. But searching for quality material for reasonable price is really difficult task. In search of materials for reasonable price, I have ended up spending more money :). Positive side is , I have found many places where we get quality products with reasonable price.

One such search is Chindi Bazar of Shrirampura Bangalore(you can search in maps for the exact location). Once you enter Chindi bazar, you can see lots of small and big shops on both the sides of the road. Earlier here sellers used to sell only cut pieces(Chindi in Kannada), so the name "Chindi Bazar". But now there are nearly 400 to 500 shops selling different kinds of cloths.

I feel its really a heaven for cloth lovers. Everywhere you can see cloths and materials required for sewing and stitching like buttons, needles, threads etc. Here we get many varieties of cloths except pure silk. The varieties include cotton, artificial raw silk, satin, velvet,Georgette and many more.

The best part is price. Some sellers , price cloths per kilograms and they sell according to requirement of buyer. Buyer can opt for half kg, 250 grams etc. And some seller sell meter-wise. When I inquired a seller about the source of materials, he told  they source it from all parts of India, - Tamilnadu, Baroda, Mumbai etc. So many designs like block print , kalamkari , embroidered materials , batik are also available here.

 Another feature is you get plenty of options, in colors or designs.

This market may not satisfy all your requirements for designing purpose. But the materials here are pocket friendly.This serves many purposes like learning stitching and sewing , learning fashion designing , making quilts, or for the clients who demand good design for less price. I have got many times good materials here. 

The sellers claim that clothes are not available this cheap anywhere in Bangalore. :-)

  6. Thanks for sharing!! I am sure such market might be here in Hyderabad too. I usually purchase fabrics when there are cotton and silk expo in community halls within 15 km range :) My husband don't have patience to take me far places. To explore such places I need a friend with same passion for creativity.
