It was his crazy jokes that first introduced her to him. He had said something ridiculous, which now had become routine, and her face had tilted that crucial 90 degrees that became the first ever moment of their love story. As they stood in the midst of the rose garden today, even on one knee, he again said something ridiculous. The roses all around laughed and she realised that their love story with him had also begun! “Ask me soon so I can say yes, you idiot!”, she said as she shook her head. He did, she did.

Our artists paint with all their hearts to create the hand-painted sarees. First, the painting is created with a pencil and water colours and once it is finalised, it is made on a live-sized paper and sent to artisans in villages. These artisans keep this as a reference and paint the final painting on the fabric in a free-hand technique. The softest Mul fabric becomes the perfect canvas for this art and these sarees make a statement like no other. There are bound to be some irregularities here and there and no two products will look absolutely the same. This is the beautiful allure of hand-painted art.
The mul cotton is what we call ‘made in heaven’ at Suta. Known in West Bengal as mul mul, the fabric is what can be categorised as muslin cotton. It is believed that this fine method of weaving cotton can be traced back to even before the Indus valley civilization. What makes this fabric special is the almost magical process of weaving it. Cotton fibres are separated and spun into strong threads. The lightest and the most delicate fibres are separated and are then spun into muslin thread. These are then woven into fabrics by skilled weavers. The history of muslin weaving is a beautiful chapter in the history of Indian textiles. The process of the yore was much more complex and involved many unique tools that look primitive but worked like magic. The upper jaw of a catfish was used to initially clean the cotton before spinning. To separate the lightest fibres, a Dhunkar (a bamboo bow) was used, which when strung in a distinctive way made the lighter fibres rise above the heavier ones. This process gave the title ‘woven air’ to the muslin fabric.
