Amma bought a saree 2 decades ago, the only one that she had independently chosen without the “I know best” of her mother, aunts, grandma, and the rest of the brigade. Cut to present day. As I frantically searched for a good saree to wear for my farewell this week, I just couldn’t find the perfect one. “I want a saree that actually says something, Ma”, I cribbed. Amma walked in with her 2 decades old saree and placed it in my hands. “This says you always get to have a say”, she said. And, that was my first saree ever. It couldn’t have been more special or more beautiful!

This is a handwoven Tussar Ghicha silk saree with exquisite hand-embroidered designs and fabric tassels.
Tussar silk is a material that is synonymous with richness and lush beauty. This material is woven using silk threads obtained from the cocoons of a specific kind of silkworms. Since most of these silkworms are found in forest areas, Tussar silk is also known to be a wild silk variety. The natural sheen of this fabric is inimitable and is perfect for festive occasions as well as when you want the spotlight on you! Ghicha silk is a unique kind of silk made in a similar way as Tussar, except that here the fibres are made of cocoons that do not get reeled for Tussar silk due to being pierced or cut. Together, Tussar Ghicha silk thus brings out a unique texture and feel.
The magical feel of this fabric combined with the weaving and embroidery skills of talented weavers and artisans results in a fabric that will embrace you and make you shine! The pretty tassels made of upcycled fabric are an ode to reducing fabric waste and finding beautiful ways to make it part of products.
