This rich Patteda Anchu Saree from Karnataka, in an earthy eggplant aubergine shade flaunts the ever-desired Ganga-Jamuna Border. Featuring traditional Kasuti embroidery ( Albeit Machine done) this saree is a must have!
This weave is, perhaps, defined more by age and longevity than any aspect of its gorgeous visage. Seeped in the history of the Indian Subcontinent, these weaves have been traced back to nearly 1200 years ago. Their uniqueness lies in their checkered pattern, vibrant colours... and if you can snag one with them, the distinctive Ganga-Jamuna Borders that make this saree reversible! These sarees are pure, primordial and associated with the auspiciousness of being worn by the Goddess Shakti...
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 thier intricate patterns or the Patteda Anchus that date back to the 8th Century, are ingrained in IndiaÕs Artistic-Cultural History.
Their simple, fine colours, their impeccable drapes, their fabric-the treat with the utmost respect, make these sarees, some to die for.
