My Feedback About a Top shop in Hyderabad, India

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 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 very desirable.

Do bear in mind that these fabrics usually require gentle hand washing and drip-drying.

Also, sizing and quality can be 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.

The Connaught Place store is open daily from 10am to 7pm; the Khan Market store is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 7pm.

I bought a pretty pricey pashmina here thinking that I was dealing with a reputable store. About 15 minutes after I took it out of the packaging and wore it for the first time (once arriving at home) it tore in three different spots and it was just wrapped around me.

It wasn't like I was moving around or doing anything that would cause it to rip.

I emailed the Craft House to let them know of my complete disappointment and of course received no reply.

I would recommend avoiding this store as the quality is terrible and the customer service even worse. Which, by the way, was my experience almost everywhere in India. Delhi was particularly bad.

I will never return!

Here is the second experience I had from the same shop:

I love face product. I always used Declare brand and now I found my next favorite thing. That is the product of Veda art. It is nice to find such a wonderful line. My skin is fabulous with No greasy touch just soft and shiny, like it was a brushed up picture on the cover of Elle magazine.

These were the 2 different experiences I had from one Shop.
