Our latest collection is called Noorani, which means luminescence or radiance. This is an especially fitting name, given that this collection is full of gorgeous pieces crafted in the finest Chanderi silk fabric, which is so luminescent that it looks like woven sunlight.
Crafted in pure Chanderi silk
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 – most notably in Varanasi or Benares, which is where we have sourced our fabric from. For this collection, we have used pure Benaras Chanderi silk to craft the most exquisite pieces for you.
Understated, yet elegant
We understand the problem with a lot of occasion wear today – while beautiful, most of it is either too heavy or too over-the-top. We at Tjori wanted to come up with a line of clothes where we let the cut of the cloth, the premium fabric do the talking – and so we created Noorani.
