As beautiful and intricate our local khussa’s are, the designs and colours have become monotonous. Every shop has the same attractive stone and taar work, but there are none that can be customised to one’s own likes and dislikes. Understanding this dilemma, many local businesses have started to customise and deliver hand painted khussa’s right to your doorstep. You can let your creativity run free with these local businesses who ensure quality and refinement in their products.
Below we have enlisted our favourite online stores that will surely execute your vision for your khussas perfectly.
