Chaandani, or moonlight, is the name of our latest collection which features luxurious Chanderi silk sarees. The name is dedicated to the Chanderi silk fabric used in this collection, which is so luminous, so luxurious, it looks like woven moonlight.
The art of weaving the gossamer-like Chanderi fabric is about five centuries old. Not many know that the word Chanderi, in fact, comes from the name of the town in Madhya Pradesh where this fabric is woven. Chanderi fabric can be pure Chanderi silk or Chanderi silk cotton. It is made by weaving silk or threads of zari gold into the traditional cotton yarn to give the fabric an exquisite, shimmering texture.
Today, of course, Chanderi silk is also woven at other handloom centres of India, and not just in Madhya Pradesh. For this collection, we have used pure Chanderi silk to create gorgeous sarees with fine zari work.
Our Chanderi silk is a prime example of India’s rich history of handloom woven textiles. In the day and age of synthetic fabrics and power mills, we have used pure woven silk zari – created lovingly by hand by the skilled weavers of India. When you drape on a saree from this collection, you drape on hours of hard work and dedication, you patronise to the handloom sector of India.
Moreover, the beauty of handloom textiles is that they are made to last. Quite unlike the use and throw philosophy of fast fashion, handloom textiles, like the sarees in this collection, are pieces that you can pass on through generations. In that sense, when you buy a saree, you invest in a piece that will last long and look exquisite.
With the season of Pujo, Diwali and of course, weddings, drawing closer, now is the perfect time to invest in classic traditional wear. And what better way to do that than with sarees? The sarees in this collection are perfect for occasion wear, made as they are with luxurious silk and zari. The fine gold and silver zari work only adds to their finesse without making them look over the top.
Festive shades of red and yellow mingle effortlessly with silver and gold in this collection. The colour palette for this festive wear range is rich hues like blue, purple, red, yellow and black. Softer colours like white and chartreuse make an appearance if you lean towards pastels.
