Answer: Among other places (Fab India, Global Desi, W for Women, Aurelia, and so on), World of Ek!
Brand spotlight – World of Ek
If you haven’t heard about this website before let me, tell you it’s the latest business initiative of the famous television personality, Ekta Kapoor. The brand offers a range of products from home décor, and furnishings to apparel, jewellery and a host of dining and wellness utility items like plates, bowls, incense sticks etc.
All the products are purely hand-crafted by Indian artisans with an aim to bring a piece of India to every home. They are made from the best quality materials that are sustainable and good from a wellness point of view. I ordered two Kurtis for myself and a 100% hand-block print bedsheet for my bedroom.
How did these products fair with me, read the review to know.
World of Ek Products Review
Ek by Ekta Kurtis Review
I love wearing Kurtis, especially during the summer. They’re not only comfortable and convenient to wear but can also be paired up with almost anything (leggings, palazzos, trousers, pants, jeans, skirt, everything!) depending upon the mood and occasion.
The Kurtis I ordered from World of Ek is made from 100% cotton material. They feel very soft on the skin and weigh almost next to nothing. The soothing colour combinations (off-white, maroon, yellow and light pink) along with ‘Keri’ (mango) prints and paisley motifs, make these Kurtis ultra summerish and stylish.
The fits are relaxed and comforting. They are perfect for those days when you want to take it easy and just loosen up for a casual summer evening. One of my favourite ways to wear these Kurtis is by pairing them up with contrast palazzo pants. And then add silver or oxidised jewellery to the mix complete with Jaipuri Jutis for an effortlessly chic look.
I really liked the fit and fabric quality of these Kurtis. And the price at which they come for is pretty reasonable too especially when considering the quality of the materials used.
Ek by Ekta Bed Sheets Review
When it comes to bed linen and sheets, I am the kind of person who never likes to compromise. I cannot sleep on poor-quality sheets. I have very sensitive facial and body skin. Rough textured sheets and pillowcases make me feel very uncomfortable.
The yellow floral bed sheet from the World of Ek is made from pure cotton fabric. The aesthetically designed ethnic motifs are hand-block printed on the spread by local artisans. The yellow colour and floral print have a very soothing and calming appeal about them. They fill my room with a very positive and happy vibe.
Now coming to the most important part, the texture of this bed sheet. Well so far, I am satisfied with the fineness of the sheet and pillowcases. It has a soft and airy feel to it. Even though isn’t as smooth as I want my sheets to be, it does help keep me comfortable and cool at night. And this is what matters the most at the end of the day – a good night’s sleep!
I ordered a king-size bed sheet for my bed. I have a thick, deep memory foam mattress and this cotton sheet from World of Ek is one of those few sheets that effectively envelopes my profound mattress.
As for the durability of the sheets, it is soon for me to comment. If I do notice any issues, I’ll update in this review.
Now if you too have got excited about the brand, just like me, here’s a quick review for you to help make your pick:

The brand assures the best quality products on its website. As for me, I am really happy with the fabric and print quality of the Kurtis and bed sheet I ordered from the site. They are made from 100% cotton material and have a very breezy texture.
