The ancient craft of wax-resist dyeing called Batik adds a timeless charm to this saree. Wax-resist dyeing has been a part of so many ancient civilisations across the world and can be uniquely characterised by the local motifs and designs used. Specifically in India, Batik is said to have over 2000 years of history. Materials such as wax or rice starch was used to create the resistance to dye and thus create the Batik designs. The entire process involves various steps such as drawing the basic pattern, redrawing using wax and then applying the dye. Then, the wax is removed after the fabric dries. This is done multiple times to create various patterns with different colours. The craft used in this product is hand-done Batik where the artisans draw in a free-hand style. The process of dyeing is something that has been passed down by generations of artisans and the stunning designs created by these master craftsmen are timeless
