  • Footwear: Enhance your look by pairing your kurtas with the timeless elegance of Kolhapuri chappals or flat sliders.
  • Handbags: A classy contrasting or matching handbag or clutch will complete your look and add functionality.

    Taking Care Of Your Summer Kurtas

    With the right amount of care, your cotton kurtas will look and feel fresh for a long period of time. 

    • Ironing: 
      • When it comes to cotton kurtas, sprinkle a little water to dampen them. Set the iron to high, and then start ironing. 
      • However, when ironing linen kurtas, you will need to do heavy ironing to remove the creases.
    • Washing: It is advisable to use hand washing rather than machine-washing your cotton and linen kurtas. Use only cold water and a mild detergent. 
    • Drying: Avoid drying your cotton or linen kurta in direct sunlight, as the harsh UV rays can cause the colour to fade out.
