My Online Shopping Experience- iTokri
I personally prefer to do online shopping for all my needs so be it clothes, groceries, footwear, accessories, gadgets, and a lot more. Since they are hassle-free, time-saving, easy to return, and with amazing discounts. But I prefer doing a little research before shopping from a new website.

Products are there in different categories, or you can also use the search bar to find your desired ones. iTokri has product categories like fabrics, homeware, dress material, sarees, stationery, dupattas, stoles, folk art paintings…

Some of the items are difficult to find in the local stores or need a lot more exploring. But getting these handicraft products in one place is so easy for me.
