Overview

In few other garments can imaginative vision be better expressed than in a saree. Rarely can one make a more daring, more vividly different statement, setting oneself miles apart from the play-it-safers, than by donning this explosion of colour and expression. And there is no better place to immerse yourself in this fabulous, wearable art than at Aashkii, a fashion store dedicated to the finest things in life. Tucked away in a leafy corner of Cinnamon Gardens, Sri Lanka's chic-est neighbourhood, we provide a style sanctuary to all who glide through the doors of our exclusive boutique. At Aashkii, we house the refined designs of some of the world's most dazzling fashion designers, including global icons such as Satya Paul and Ritu Kumar, and inimitable Sri Lankan labels such as 79 and Art In A Style. We insist on the highest standards of quality and refuse to compromise our quality under any circumstances. Aashkii prides itself on finding the perfect expressive ethnic ensemble for any customer that walks through our doors. The store's very own 'Aashkii' brand is based on the utility and easy elegance of ethnic fashion, showcasing beautiful kurtas, sarees, tops, skirts, dresses and tunics carefully crafted from a range of local textures and materials - handlooms, silk and pure cotton.

I visited 5 years back and got very beautiful sarees. Now will be visiting again in the coming week but am not certain whether I will be able to find good, printed silk and dgeaorgette sarees at reasonable prices
