Local designs and traditional clothing
Jan 2020
Wonderful store with traditional cotton and silk clothing of India. The designs are contemporary for a blending of east/west tradition.

Nothing special - disappointing designs
Jan 2020
I know this brand from years ago and the designs are same, same and nothing new. The staff were helpful but hovering around a customer makes you very uncomfortable and I didn't feel comfortable buying anything.

Amazing designs in Anokhi
Jan 2020 • Family
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.

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.

Oh-NO-Khi (not this location)
Jun 2018 • Couples
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.

Quality products at decent price
Dec 2017 • Couples
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.

The beautiful handcrafted products made organically were just amazing.
The colours and prints are beautiful and they have handmade diaries too.
I particularly liked the colourful cotton handkerchiefs 😊

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!
