The Vintage charm of Pen Kalamkari meets the grandeur of a Banarasi Saree!
Absolutely no shortcuts have been used to produce this beauty!
In a world of shortcuts, where many kalamkari Sarees today are painted on screen-printed outlines, and several steps suggested for this 3000-year-old art form are conveniently skipped, this saree has been passionately created under the guidance of a national award-winning artist in India. The making of this saree has involved an elaborate process that spans several days and includes aspects like treating the saree in boiling milk and other organic compounds, using all-natural mineral and vegetable-based dyes, fixating the dyes, and finally neutralizing any pungent residue with natural musk.
The base saree is a pure Katan Silk that comes Silk Mark Certified and has Koniya Zari Motifs. The colors are elegant and muted due to natural dyes for a charming rustic look.
It showcases the Pichwai Inspired Cow Murals.
The entire saree and blouse piece are Handpainted by several artists working simultaneously. The saree is a labor of love and is ready to wear with falls and pico done. Designer handmade. tassels are added for more charm.
***** Colors May vary from what you see due to screen settings and other factors.
****Note: the saree is made of pure natural silk and the kalamkari work on it is completely handmade. There may be slight inconsistencies such as paint smudges etc. Being characteristic they are not considered defects.
