No matter how much we move forward in time, it is often our very roots that hold us in place. As far as our fabrics are concerned, we are in an age of constant innovation and up-gradation. Even so, our love for age-old crafts and processes like block printing can never fade. Block printing is an art that is at least a few centuries old. Especially in India, the art has evolved to incorporate the motifs and designs of different regions. It is a process of printing designs on a base fabric using wooden stamps dipped in dye. The charm lies in the fact that all the steps of block printing are done by artisans using their hands. Right from carving the wooden stamp, which itself requires a lot of expertise and skill, to printing the fabric and drying it, each step is carried out by dedicated artisans. The intricately carved stamps are a wonder by themselves and there are separate sects of artisans who specialise in this and create highly nuanced wooden stamps using chisels, drills and hammers. Once this is done, mustard oil is applied to the stamps and they are left to soak up the oil to prevent cracks. Meanwhile, the base fabric is washed and dyed. Handloom fabrics are most preferred as they absorb the colours of the print gorgeously. Following this, the fabric is laid out on a flat surface and held in place with small pins. The wooden stamp is dipped in the chosen dye and then slammed onto the fabric in one forceful motion. The entire saree or as much as required is printed this way by consecutively pressing the stamp on the fabric with force. To make sure that the print doesn’t get distorted, sawdust is sprinkled on the saree once the printing is done. After the process is over, the saree is washed and dried. The patience, skill and creativity of artisans come forth brilliantly with a hand block printed saree. There are bound to be small irregularities in the print as a result of human error and that lends a whole new level of allure to this art-form.
The block-printing on this saree is done on a made-in-heaven mul cotton fabric which is lighter than air and loved by our Suta Queens immensely.
When it comes to fabrics, there is a history of many types of fabrics that have been used since the dawn of the first civilizations. Some of these fabrics have weathered the changes in time and are still among the most used fabrics even today. While such fabrics and weaves have an undeniable old-world charm, at the other end of the spectrum there are some wonderful fabrics that are products of new-age innovation. These fabrics are developed with the challenges of the present world in mind while also retaining the allure of conventional fabrics.
Suta sarees are now made fluid with MODAL- a nature based fabric from the house of Aditya Birla Group. Sarees made with MODAL acquire a soft drape and luxurious sheen making you look stylish while keeping you absolutely comfortable. It is fashion so fluid, that when you move, it moves with you.
MODAL products are nature based made from fibres extruded from wood, like birch, eucalyptus etc., which is sustainable, renewable and from responsible sources. They have the lowest ecological footprint. It is made using significantly lesser natural resources than other fibres, with a lower impact on the environment.
At Suta, we have taken this piece of innovation and made it into our very own fabric by combining MODAL yarn and made-in-heaven mul yarn together to create a very special product. The coming together of a new-age yarn and the most loved mul yarn is truly a magical thing and the outcome is spectacular. Good clothes are meant to not just make you look good but also make you feel good from inside and this eco-friendly twist to your favourite mul saree will achieve exactly that!
