There was a reason why she loved the crescent moon so dearly. So much that her poems began and ended with it. It never questioned her nor begged for any answers. It reminded her that it shone and was always whole, regardless of its form. As she watched the moon unravel its beauty that night, she made peace with her sufficient yet imperfect self and realized she was the moon’s sister, after all!

This saree’s name is inspired by the Odissi dance mudra - Chandrakala, which means “a crescent moon”. 

This Ikat handloom cotton navy blue and black hued saree, with black tassels magnificently becomes a part of you and your story, in the most pristine way.  

This is a handloom cotton Ikat saree.
Ikat is an art of resist-dyeing where the yarn is coated with resistive materials in specific patterns and then dyed before weaving the fabric. The process of applying dye-resist and dyeing is repeated multiple times to create exquisite patterns.
Handloom cotton is a type of fabric that is woven using hand operated looms. Two sets of interlacing yarns, the warp (length) and weft (width), are woven on a mechanised loom operated by weavers. These looms do not use electricity. Human handling lends the fabrics a unique feel and renders the fabrics more value.
The art of hand weaving is labour intensive and takes a longer time. But, the beauty it adds to the fabric is priceless. Choosing handloom cotton supports the rich weaving heritage of India and lets the weavers carry on the precious art-form to the future generations as well.
