Who said comfortable wear was not stylish? Where a kurti or a tunic everyday
Kurti is a perfect option for those that want to blend traditional Indian outfits with modern everyday styles! Be it a walk in the park, an office setting, a lunch with your girlfriends – Kurti will never fail to help you feel comfortable and mobile, all while preserving the special ethnic touch. Kurti tunics are a perfect adaptation of ethnic Indian everyday comfortable wear.
Kurti, or Kurta, is a tunic-like long top of varying length, usually around the knees level. Kurtis are usually paired with Salwar Churidar pants or leggings, and can matched with a Dupatta to finish the look. Kurtis usually have long sleeves and triangle collar cuts, however there is a great variation that would allow you to find your unique style – and no better place to look at other than our Laakha Kurti & Tunics collection.
Every Indian garment has rich history behind it, and Kurti is no exception.
Originally, Kurta was worn only by men in such countries as India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh; there was primarily one common and simple design, favoured for comfort and free fit that was essential in hot weather. With time Kurta became available for women, gaining a feminine “Kurti” term. Primarily Kurtis were made of cotton, and then silk – nowadays, however, one can easily find Kurtis made of every material imaginable.
As you can see, even though regarded an Indo western clothing, Kurtis have their roots way back into Indian history. It was popularized in 60s and 70s by the hippie movement, which took a lot of inspiration from many ancient cultures, Indian being one of the primary ones. Much like us today, hippies valued the feeling of freedom and being laid-back that Kurta tunics allowed like nothing else. At Laakha you can easily find a Kurti or Tunic to fit your style, as we have a range of traditional and modern styles for you to choose from.
