Most of our regular clientele say that they love Sakhi’s unique saree collection because of the unusual designs and the perfect mix of tradition and modernity. As a result, we strive to create new looks that suit every important Indian festival. In keeping with this, we have introduced the Bedazzled Collection, which is inspired by the Akshaya Tritiya Festival.
According to ancient Hindu scriptures, this day is associated with fortune and prosperity as it marks the day of the year when the sun and moon shine brightest. One of the beliefs associated with Akshaya Tritiya Day is that it is an auspicious day when any good deed or venture that is initiated by a person will return success and prosperity manifold as the word ‘Akshaya’ means never diminishing (‘tritiya’ means third day as this festival usually falls on the third day of the Shukla Paksha during the month of Vaishak).
One of the most common traditions undertaken on this day is buying gold or jewellery. In keeping with this theme, the mother-daughter designer duo behind Sakhi – Chandra Rajendran and Neeta have brought out the Bedazzled collection, which features a unique collection of sarees with jewellery inspired motifs. The collection includes fabrics such as Kota Silk, Organza, Tusser, Chiffon and Kanchipuram, with motifs of jewellery such as Jhumkas, Maagtikas, Earrings and Maalas that block printed, embroidered or woven into the fabric to present exquisite designs that are traditional yet trendy.
What’s more, this exquisite saree collection can be paired to match the motifs of the Amrapali jewellery (a well-known brand from Jaipur) that is available at Sakhi Online. From rich kanchipuram silks with woven earring motifs, light organza silks with jhumka motifs in the body or elegant tussar silks with hand block printed motifs of maagtikas, the beautiful collection has a choice of sarees for both formal and informal occasions.
While the tradition of the Akshaya Tritiya festival includes buying jewellery, there’s a way to make this more glamorous by pairing it with a saree that matches the jewellery motif. Sakhi’s online saree collection includes handcrafted Kanchivaram silks in brilliant colours embellished with silver and gold coated threads in motifs inspired by Jhumkas, Maangtikas, Earrings and Malas. These include designer sarees with unique concepts like half n half, shoulder design, party pallu, rising and many other concepts that add a contemporary edge to the timelessness of Kanchivaram silks.
In addition, there are sarees for casual occasions, includinglight Tussar silks, Kotasilks and Chiffon silks in brilliant shades such as green, pink, blue as well as elegant black and off-white. They feature gold kadi print or hand block printed jewellery inspired motifs.
The exclusive Bedazzled Collection is priced between Rs.4,500 and Rs.36,000 is available at Sakhi boutiques, both in Bangalore and Hyderabad, as well as at www.SakhiFashions.com, the online store.
