Rich hand- woven textiles that are sure to grab eyeballs are the definite highlights of the Nextiles collection. Natural fibres are at the core of Nextiles, a brand started by Suchismita Dasgupta in 2004 aimed at people who prefer suave style over the latest fashion trends and share her passion for natural textiles. Repositioning traditional fabrics with contemporary styles in an urban setting has been Suchismita’s idea behind the store. The Nextiles saris stand out from the crowd by virtue of their vibrant colours, striking designs and quality of fabrics— which makes them the bestsellers in the online store. Nextiles also has dresses, skirts, trousers and kurtis, besides their popular saris. Simple cuts and sober silhouettes mark all of Nextiles designs. Accessories like bags and jewellery that complement the Nextiles outfits are also in the pipeline. Buoyed by the online response, she took to social networking for her brand and business has multiplied since then.
