We found Anokhi by chance while going to the beach road in Pondy... n couldn't stop shopping here. It's got very good collection and an equally helpful staff.

Though personally I feel the stuff was a bit over priced compared to the quality of cloth - but there is no denying the designs are amazing. And holidays are meant to do shopping. So I would suggest it's a must visit shop in Pondy.

This boutique is located in a quiet street of white town, Pondicherry. If you are looking for some good comfortable clothing to beat the heat and humidity of Pondicherry, then Anokhi is the shop to visit. The cloth material are of good quality and designs are really nice. But, I felt that the prices are on the higher side.

Also, I'd like to mention one person in their staff(don't know her name). Though in general the staff was courteous and helpful, this lady was a bit rude and was snatching tried clothes away from my hand even before I can decide whether I want it or not. Maybe it was a one-off incident but such an incident leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I hope that they keep such incidents in check.

A bit of a throwback to the hippy dippy era but extremely stylish and beautiful fabrics and colours. Ideal garments for a summer dinner in Pondicherry, Provence or Piemonte.
Good value for money too.

Wonderful store with traditional cotton and silk clothing of India. The designs are contemporary for a blending of east/west tradition.

Known for quality cotton prints, this store in pondicherry is a delight for the customers, however the sizes were not available for all prints. Nevertheless a good store.

Whenever we visit India, my wife drags me to this store. We seek out every Anohki in every town. If there are multiple Anohki stores in a city, we will hit them all. It is a wonderful store with high quality clothing that appeals to all tastes. We especially love that it preserves the tradition of hand-stamping clothing with natural dyes. All of the designs are copyrighted by Anohki, so you really are getting a piece of wearable art.

Unfortunately, the staff at the Pondichery location were horrible. The minute we walked in, they reminded us of closing time (we still had 45 minutes to browse). Feeling rushed, we purchased a few things and went back the next day only to be told that they would be closing soon for lunch. The store sign said nothing about closing during the noon hour and with 5 employees it seems like they could have taken shifts for their break. They hovered around and rushed us to the point that we simply left without buying anything. Honestly, the staff seemed like they just did not care. One evening on our way to dinner we walked by the store around 6:50 pm, and we saw that the employees were already leaving as they had obviously closed the store early. It's a shame that a store with such great products has missed the mark on training their staff. It does seem to be isolated to this location (the Chenai store had fabulous service) and we will not be returning to the Pondi branch.

Clothes sold by Anokhi are surely much more expensive than what you can buy in some other shops, but much cheaper than what you'd pay for the same quality clothes in the West. So if you're looking for quality clothes, with beautiful Indian inspired patterns, Anokhi is definitely a good choice.

Anokhi is our favourite shop in India. They can be found in many major towns and are now newly in Pondicherry. We went here every day buying something each day. Their hand block printed fabrics are made in a very ethical way and feel lovely to wear. They also sell homewares such as quilts, tablecloths, cushion covers etc...Don't leave Pondy without visiting Anokhi!
