Black-Purple Pure Katan Silk Banarasi Handloom Saree
Our Glorious Heritage
An exploration and interpretation of our rich, varied and magnificent heritage. An ode to our weaving history, this saree has a traditional Banarasi Booti pattern in Gold and Silver zari and a magnificent Koniya Aanchal, woven in full kadhua style.
Color - A regal shot colour with a warp of Black and a weft of Purple
Technique - An enduring Kadwa weave. The elaborate and laborious Kadwa (Kadhua) technique involves hand-weaving each motif separately. It takes longer on the handloom, but makes a more robust pattern, which stands out on the fabric.
Fabric - Soft as butter, pure Katan silk
Speciality - A classic Bootidaar pattern in zari with a koniya aanchal or paisleys at its corners. The corners are particularly difficult to weave as they are a break from the running pattern, but koniyas look magnificent when worn.
Tilfi Promise - Pure. Handloom. Banaras.
Since this product is handwoven, there might be slight irregularities. But don't you think these add to the singular charm of a handloom beauty?
