Hand-block printed fabrics have always held a special place in our hearts. The incredible skill, technique and history they hold, the paramparas they cocoon are often, misunderstood and undervalued.
Wooden blocks- hand-carved, with designs that go back centuries, impress indelible natural dyes, fermented over months, hit after hit from the side of a master artisan's hand... Relaxed, imperfect yet regal...
These Blockprinted sarees often carry the soul of Rajputana Royalty adorned by the architecture, religion and nature-inspired motifs that have adorned Textile Museums across the world.
Like this one, Maheshwari Silk Sarees are rich, regal pieces- the first one, as per legend, designed by the Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar. The grandeur of Madhya Pradesh's erstwhile royalty, hidden within the motifs, wefts and weaves of this gorgeous fabric.
