A parade of elephants that is ever so stately, a chain of horses that is magnificent, colours that are regal and beautiful, and weaves that are enchanting - all come together in this saree that is simply...fascinating! Luxurious and incredibly detailed, this is a handcrafted passage through our weaving heritage.
Color - A marvellous shade of Navy Blue with a contrast Pink border
Technique - An enduring Kadwa weave and a classic Kadiyal technique. 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. Kadiyal helps achieve a border in a sharply contrasting color using multiple changes in warp and the weft shuttle.
Fabric - Soft as butter, pure Katan silk
Speciality - With a melange of motifs of birds, animals, flora and fauna, Shikaargah is a testament to the skill of our weavers and the wonders they are capable of. This saree represents the glorious confluence of many weaving elements, including Meenakari, Kadhua weaving and Kadiyal.
Tilfi Promise - Pure. Handloom. Banaras.
Note - The saree comes with its own blouse piece. The model is wearing a separate blouse for styling purposes only.
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?
