About Us

Sariska is the online store for the independent Anokhi boutiques based in Winchester and Salisbury, UK. We are a family business which was started in 1987, and we sell a wide variety of high quality clothing, accessories, jewellery and home furnishings.



Our Passion

We have a passion for quality, natural fabrics and hand-crafted products which we source worldwide in order to supply our customers with individual, colourful and vibrant fashion to suit all shapes; with sizes stocked from S to XXL. Our clothing, scarves and home furnishings are created using fine materials such as soft natural cotton, and exquisite quality silks, and most of our jewellery, with its intricate designs, is made by using sustainable materials such as stone, wood, shell, resin, mother of pearl, semi-silver and semi-precious stones.

All of these products are created by highly skilled craftsmen using traditional methods, such as the use of the ancient art of hand-block printing, where rich vegetable dyes are used to create our beautiful, vividly patterned quilts, as well as the use of traditional weaving techniques to produce many of our unique bags. We stock a wide range of brands for you to choose from, including: Adini, Masai Clothing, Anokhi, Sahara, Capri Clothing and a collection of Intown jeans which are renowned for their fantastic fit and style.

The team behind Sariska are committed to ethics and equality in production of all of the products that we sell. As a result, we pride ourselves on having knowledge of the origins of all our products, having spent years building close, collaborative relationships with ethical and fair suppliers who look after the craftsmen that create our collections.

 

Our History

Our History Our history is steeped in a close working relationship with the Anokhi farm in Jaipur, India. In 1987, the majority of our clothing was solely Anokhi, and involved us personally visiting the Anokhi Farm in Jaipur where their famous hand-block prints are designed and produced, whilst always staying faithful to traditional methods in order to keep such historical textile art alive today. There are many stages to the formation of the extravagant Anokhi quilts that we sell, including hand-carving of the wooden blocks which are used to print patterns onto fabrics, using dyes made manually with vegetables and minerals.

This process is followed by drying the fabric in the heat of the Indian sun, alternating the length at which it is exposed to sunlight in order to vary the colours developed. This is a fascinating process, and leads to the development of our range of magnificently detailed and vibrant Anokhi quilts. Despite not stocking as much Anokhi today, this historical connection to naturally created colours and prints has impacted our unique modern collections. We hope that you enjoy your shopping experience on the Sariska website, and that you also find yourself inspired by the quality, colours and natural fabrics which will pride our collection on.
