Gushing river and banana fields

Rs. 3,360

Excerpt

" The gushing river streamed forth, seeing the world like no one else. The pristine white blanket snaked around the most diverse forms of land and connected the stories of the lands with the stories of the seas. Every moment of time was a picture of perfection in its journey and one such moment was the image of two banana fields on either banks of the river. The fields were like sisters who looked like they were far from each other, while in reality they never let go of each other’s hands under the seemingly unstoppable currents of life. ." ___________________________________________________

Description:
Everything is extra beautiful when you have the company of the right saree. Feel like the ethereal beauty that you are with this white and green handloom cotton saree decorated with Jamdani work. The Jamdani is a testimony to the beautiful union of Mughal and ancient Indian cultures. Though the exquisite weave has been quite popular even before the Mughals, it is under them that Jamdani flourished and rose to become a weave that the world took notice of. The name Jamdani comes from the Persian language, the official language of the Mughals. Jam means flower and Dani means vase, symbolising the floral motifs that were popularly used in the weave. What it was called before this and its exact origins remain a mystery to date. However, the weave is said to have originated in Dhaka in present day Bangladesh. This art has earned recognition from the UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The Jamdani is one of the finest cotton muslin fabrics that you can find. It is woven by hand using a supplementary weft technique where the motifs are woven on the loom itself. Unbleached cotton yarn is used for the base while bleached yarn is used for the design to create an effect of depth. The designs are drawn on graph papers and placed below the saree to weave the exact pattern. Threads of gold, silver and other colours are passed through the weft while weaving, making the motifs appear like they are floating on the extremely delicate and thin sheer-like base of the saree. Jamdani sarees are painstakingly woven by master weavers and their mastery is reflected in the surreal gorgeousness of each saree. .
