    I am a shoppy person. I always search for clothes on web. I don’t know that this many accessories are available at koti along with clothes. I heard that koti is famous for only silver. Thanks for your information because after reading this, i can’t wait for many days to shop. I am very surprised that in 1 hour dress will be stitched. Is it correct?
