'Marie' Lilac Purple Pure Katan Silk Banarasi Handloom Saree
A pastel drape adorned with dainty Meenakari floral bootis in a light-hearted jangla pattern, recalling the soft palettes and playful art of Rococo. Edged with intricate, small floral zari vines along the borders and finished with a rich dose of zari on the pallu.
Color - A shade of Lilac Purple
Fabric - Soft as butter, pure Katan silk
Technique - An enduring Kadwa weave and Meenakari. 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. Meenakari involves the painstaking addition of supplementary coloured resham threads during the hand-weaving process.
Collection note - A pioneering take on the Banarasi brocade, Tilfi's Quarter to Time collection finds artistic synergies between 18th century French Rococo art and heritage Banarasi craftsmanship, marrying silhouettes that have defined feminine wardrobes across diverse cultures and eras.
Tilfi Promise - Pure. Handloom. Banaras.
Note- The saree comes with its own blouse piece. The model is wearing a separate blouse for styling purposes.
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?
