Hand woven or Hand Loomed Sarees, to the untrained eye, can look, like simple pieces of fabric, but the exquisite skill and craftsmanship they hold coccooned within them, the forethought required to predict weaves and wefts and how theyÕll impact the final product is, simply, incomprehensibleÉ
These sarees, whether the ikkats- where individual segments of individual strands of yarn are hand dyed to form their intricate patterns- or the Patteda Anchus, that date back to the 8th Century- are ingrained in IndiaÕs Artistic-Cultural History.
Their fine colours, impeccable drapes and smooth fabric- treated with the utmost respect, make these sarees, some to die for!
This piece in particular is awash in underwater hues, opening a world under the ocean...
