We put it a lot effort in writing our product descriptions to give you the most accurate information about every Tilfi product that we sell.

If you would like to know about the fabric/weave/pattern of our products, you can visit the following explanatory pages on our website:

You can also get in touch with us if you would like to know more, and we would be happy to help.

Like the peacock’s feathers, silk fiber also has a very unique luster due to its physical and chemical structures which enhances reflection of light. The photographs on the website are shot with care using the best cameras to give the most accurate look.

If you have any doubts, please feel free to request us for additional photos in indoor lights. However for indoor pictures, multiple factors such as angle of photograph, type of light (white, yellow or natural), composition of the fabric effect the colours as captured in the photographs, which may occasionally  result in minor variations.

The zari that we use in most of our sarees is very high-grade zari which has a very graceful luster. It’s not the artificial/imitation/plastic zari that is extremely shiny.

Sarees that are made of real zari or pure silver zari will have it mentioned in the product description and these are usually priced much higher, depending on the pattern and extent of zari work. You can discover our collection of real zari sarees, Zarkashi, here.

We recommend that you dry clean your saree only when necessary. You must air your saree from time to time and refold regularly to avoid creasing at the same location over an extended period of time. Kora sarees or fine Jamdanis can also be rolled for storage.

It is also advisable to store silk sarees in a breathable, uncoloured, muslin cloth in a dry location. Avoid exposure to moisture as it may damage the saree or the zari. Also avoid ironing directly on the zari and any direct contact with perfume.

Yes, all our sarees are woven with extra fabric of length approximately 0.8m to 1m for the blouse.

Unfortunately, we do not offer any design customization service at the moment. We only do designs that are created by our design team.

The design making and weaving process for handloom products is quite involved and time consuming. It often requires many months of planning and inputs from several of our highly skilled experts. 

However, if you are looking to revive a heritage saree, we may take on a revival project depending on time and capacity available. 

Yes, we do sell running fabrics. These are available under our collection Tantra

We have an in-house design team that balances colours and overall aesthetic. The brand has its own colour palette and identity for each design. A lot of thought and planning goes into how we want each individual product to come out.

Unfortunately, for this reason we do not take customisation requests.

All of Tilfi's products use only pure natural yarns. All of our products are made from various forms of silk and cotton.

We are also a silk mark registered organisation.
