Like clockwork, her eyes opened just before the break of dawn. Outside her window, the street was as dark and empty as the starless sky above it. But, like every night leading up to this day, her dreams had been punctuated with the feverish throb of the dholak. The sound ebbed and flowed, like the pulse running through her veins. If she listened hard enough, she could still hear the chants of her neighbours who’d hurriedly joined the procession, rubbing the sleep from their eyes.

She thought back to the last time she’d joined the procession, her feet bare and a pair of copper cymbals in her hands. The resounding beats always chased the darkness away, with the promise of a new beginning. It was a morning of celebration, of looking forward, of looking beyond the last remnants of the night that still streaked the sky. She’d traded that in for the big city, for these nameless streets and a life she’d always dreamed of. And although it would be many years before she saw the probhat pheri again, in her heart, she knew that this morning would always herald a bright new day.

This black and gold mul cotton saree is reminiscent of that magical twilight hour and will certainly turn heads.

The mul cotton is what we call ‘made in heaven’ at Suta. Known in West Bengal as mul mul, the fabric is buttery soft and delicately beautiful. The weave of this fabric is very fine, and this lends a very fluid texture to it that makes draping it a breeze. It is truly like a hug that wraps you in its love! 

Jamdani, an incredibly intricate weaving technique, is not just a craft but a legacy. The process of weaving a Jamdani saree takes many days and is a labour of love. The designs are first drawn on graph paper and the weaving pattern is ideated. The design is then woven into the saree by controlling the weft as the warp remains the base. This technique of weaving makes the motifs appear like they are floating on the extremely soft and fluid cotton fabric of the saree. Jamdani sarees are painstakingly woven on handlooms by master weavers and their mastery is reflected in the surreal gorgeousness of each saree.
