Fashion Website Review:

I recently came across this site called I shop online all the time so any new website that stands out catches my eye.

I came across BharatSthali for its classy and ethnic silk sarees. It was the first time I saw such gorgeous pure silk sarees with silk mark of India certificate over online here. Bharatsthali, a fair-trade and for-profit enterprise,is committed to bringing a change. Harnessing cutting-edge technology, it offers the weavers, particularly women, a platform where they can present their craft and saree weaves directly. The Bharatstahli sarees has partnered with weavers all over India to help them have a say in quoting a reasonable price for their weaves, without any agent or middle sale network.

My top favourites are as follows:



This dress is an innovative cocktail of pink, rust brown and orange slubs, this layered dress is inspired from the colours of a chilly sundowner. It’s length is just perfect and the colours are just the right kind of bright.

STYLE TIP: If you like fusion, wear this dress with sneakers, jhumkas and a bindi.



This dress would remind you of a MELA or a fair. This dress is a mix of ajrak, kalamkari and batik patch pockets. It also features kantha detailing and tassels, everything you can ask for in one piece of clothing. Just like you get loads of things in one place at a MELA.

STYLE TIP: Add a leather sling bag to finish off the look. You can also pick dangling earrings to stand out and be noticed.



Flaunt your legs with this beautiful kurta dress. This short kurta dress is perfect for making a unique style statement the next time you’re hanging out with the girls. This kashish dyed fabric is adorned with beautiful kalamkari work and block print.

STYLE TIP: Team this piece with a pair of white sneakers and pom-pom drop earrings for the maximum effect.



The texture of this cloth makes me drool. I love it. This owl block print fit and flare dress will majorly up your day game. Kantha work along the neckline, ajrak work along the waistband and pleats beautifies this quirky piece.

STYLE TIP: A pair of sneakers is all that you need to sizzle up this one! I would also recommend wearing this with wedges to make your legs look long.



The material is super soft and comfortable. The hand block printed detailing along the side seams, hems, drawstring fastening along the waistband and patch pockets on the back gives a fresh take to this subtle piece.

STYLE TIP: Don it with a pair of multi-strapped sandals.

    • I loved the fabric and quality of patchwork on my embroidery saree. Shall order other products to see how they fare.

  1. This site is useless and customer care is pathetic. They take money for Cash on Delivery but send inferior goods. Also dont return money. I advise you to not to do shopping with them.

    • I have ordered and since the material was bad I had to return. Now no responses from them. Will they refund as i paid it in COD. had yours got refunded?

  2. I agree with RJ, its a really disappointing website and service. Im from Mumbai and I placed an order for a saree on 25th February and its been 2 months and still haven’t got the delivery despite sending several emails. Everytime they reply that it will arrive in the next few days.. They dont even have a contact no to reach to everthing is via email. The least I expect is to receive a call apologising and explaining the matter. I wouldn’t ever recommend them to anyone despite their great collection.

    • I know. Delays used to happen for me also with Rustorange. But off late my 2 orders came much early, so was pleasantly surprised. Lets see if these deliveries were one off cases or maybe finally their team is working on improving the service.

  3. Agree with all the above mentioned comments. A fraud business.Dont fall for these designs.They send a completely different one from the posted picture.Wish I read these before.A part of my order is still pending. Rightly mentioned by Bhavna no contact no.Repeated mails.No refund.They mail we will ship soon.The soon is etenal soon.Lousy business.#Cheats.Dont ever buy.Dont waste your money here.Learnt my lesson.

  4. I totally agree with all the above published reviews. Bunch of frauds. Is there a way to complain to conumerology court or forum. Cannot imagine not having customer care no. Got cheated. A big rip off.

  5. I wonder if there is a consumer Forum to address such fraud businesses. Too many of them happening.I gave a nasty facebook comment

  6. i was planning to buy 2 sarees from there collection as the stuff looks really nice. Thanks for the above comments, got saved!!

  7. This is a totally fraud site. I received the sare without the blouse piece, and the quality of saree is totally different from the picture.This was a surprise gift from my husband but seeing the saree he was very disappointed. I am sending mails but no one is bothered to revert. EVen they do not have any contact details.

  8. Goodness! I’m so glad I read these reviews bfore I ordered something.. the sarees are so pretty and I was about to order one just to see how good it is.. thanks guys! I don’t think I’ll order now

  9. I would also say people….DO NOT BUY from them. Pictures look really nice and attractive…that is how I also had placed order for one dress. When finally I received it…it was of inferior quality and very bad stitching. I was shocked !!!
    More harassment was waiting for me as they delivered after 20 days of placing the order and they took 15 more days to pick the dress. Now I have been writing mails for my refund. They are now saying that Rs.100 will get deducted for shipping charges !!!
    Look at the audacity….it is my harassment and also my money is getting deducted !!!
    This website is rubbish !!!

  10. Please don’t fall for this website. It’s a scam. The product on picture is different from what you get. They have no customer support. My money is stuck and they don’t reply to emails . They don’t have a number to call on. It’s fake website. Don’t buy.

  11. I agree with all the comments above.pathetic products. No response on customer care. Cheats minting money. Please DO NOT order from them, EVER

  12. Horrible customer service. I purchased 2 dresses without even noticing that they don’t even have a contact number, when they came , the size was not correct. After writing numerous mails, it was picked up by their logistics partner for exchange. Then again the harassment started of not replying to my mails on the status of exchange. One fine day a courier comes with exchange on just one dress and now again they are not replying to mails to give me update on the other dress. They are just to eat away the money of customers who by mistake are sending for exchange. Ridiculous website. Please don’t fall for the pics, rather download the pics and get it stitched. It’s an utter harassment to deal with them. And they are so smart that they have not even kept any open page for complains or reviews on their website. Even their Facebook page doesn’t offer a wall post to post reviews which can be publicly visible. We can only mail them or message on Facebook. They have created everything very smartly and we customers are getting trapped. Please please please be careful. Don’t ever buy from them and spread this word as much as possible so that it hampers their business.

    • Oh. That’s unfortunate I guess. So far I have done two returns, and thankfully I did not face any such issue. Maybe these guys have improved since then. Shall share my feedback upon the next return. (Though I hope I don’t have to return anything 😜)

    • Hey Gunjan. Do give them a shot. At least I have had a nice experience shopping with them. Best part is their unique designs.

  13. Fraud people its about 1 n half month since i ordered… i haven’tgot my order yet… now they stopped replying to my emails…

  14. Strangely I have shopped a few times with Rustorange. So far my experience has been good. I try using COD for all new brands. And then once I am ok with their quality and timelines, then I start prepaid ordering. Now I use prepaid only with Rustorange. You can try with COD first.

  15. I too have had a bad experience with rustorange. I had placed order for two sarees, out of which 1 was received well in time but not good in quality. The other is yet not received and don’t know the status also. I have already paid for both online and I dont know we’re it is yet?? Will suggest not to have any transaction with such company who treats the customer in such a way.

  16. Loved my saree that I had ordered from Rustorange. Wore it for a function at my school and all my colleagues were asking me where I had got the saree from. If you are ok with a 15-20 day delivery period, then this is a brilliant site for products that are ‘different’ and affordable.

  17. Hi Shivangi. Thank you for your review. I had ordered a dress from Rustorange recently purely because of the nice things you had mentioned in your review. Was amazing. It was a ajrakh jumpsuit / dress. As you said, they are really playing with Indian crafts and textiles, and doing a bloody good job with it. This brand is just perfect for me. Indian, yet different. Thanks for showcasing this here.

  18. Yes their collection is awesome! I just hope they reduce the delivery times. It gets too difficult to wait for such fabulous dresses I get to order from them! Lol. But yeah, Rustorange is amazing 👍

  19. Hi Shivangi! Nice to come across this review. I have always liked my purchases from Rustorange. Simple, unique and pure cotton. I guess it is so rare to find brands doing such nice stuff with pure cotton. Delivery too I feel is getting better. Last two orders of mine got delivered in approx 10 days. Much relieved now 🙂

  20. Love Rustorange! Always like their collections. I am a big fan of pure cotton dresses, and thats the best thing about Rustorange. Their non sheer cotton dresses are both comfortable and confidence inducing 🙂

  21. I ordered a Saree and it has been one and half month I did not get anything. Status is showing in progress since i place the order. They dont have phone number. By mail I tried to create ticket and contact multiple time . First few times they replied that it it will take some time to reach but not result. Now if I send mail / create ticket about my product or refund money , I dont get any reply. Its a fake website.

  22. Fraud website. Take prepaid orders but don’t deliver it and falsely updated order status as delivered. Complaining to customer service is pointless because they don’t take any action and are cheaters

  23. Its really\ a fraud website. They are sending entirely different product of what we order. Both the time I had a bad experience. please do not buy from these people

  24. Fraud Site! I ordered a blouse and pant saree from Rustorange and what I received was two blouses instead, no saree. When I informed them about it, they made me pay for the return whereas it wasn’t even my fault.
    Then when I received the pant saree it was not in my size. After informing them about it all they told me was that they do not have an exchange policy, yet they exchanged my blouse for the first time round. The first exchange was not a fault of mine.
    So much for their customer service. I will never order from them again. It is a fraud company out to cheat people. Even after reading so many negative reviews I still wanted to give them a chance but I faced this first hand.
