The dark mulberry handloom cotton with simple checks is a rare find. Multi colored “phool bootis” and a drop neck at the back gave a contemporary look to a traditional fabric. The front has closed together threads embroidered thickly with mirrors in between. The sleeves have colorful motifs to match the blouse. MULBERRY AND COLORS for a fresh start to the day.
The yardage mixed here is a yellow stripe and a green. Fused in a half and half pattern with a hand painted Kalamkari peacock appliquéd in a unique pattern and paisley motifs all over. The front is a rounded ”V” with simple kutchi motifs and mirrors in colours to match fabric. PEACOCK AND PAINTING is our ode to the painters and craftsmen.
The yardage is a pure handwoven green mixed and grey checks. Completely organic and dyed with vegetable and fruit rinds. We have embroidered it with thick rust and red coloured threads in a lotus or Kamal shaped motif with tendrils and mirrors in green. An unusually designed placement with geometric embroidered border across the back and sides. The sleeves are fine mercerized ikkat with the same border matching the back. Rust borders line the neck and back. RUST AND KAMAL a pure handloom dream come true
The Ajrakh in deep dark tones again is a constant on our list. The sleeve a plain deep maroon with an ivory coloured embroidery in a single mughal inspired motif. We recreated this from our revivals to suit this style. A hand block printed border at the waist and circle motifs in ivory around the neck. We draped this with a thick and gorgeous handloom cotton in blue with broad borders in purple and pink ganga jamuna. MOTIF IN MUGHAL is our ode to the artisans of Bhuj.
The handwoven mini checks in green and mustard with burnt orange stripes as the border. A thin long slit at the back with tribal motifs in multi colours in rows at the back placed parallel. Tone on tone kutchi motifs to join them together. The front has an overlapping neck with embroidered buttons lining the front. The border is handwoven in a shade of yellow. TRIBES AND ROWS is our star for the day.
