Material: Tussar Silk:
Also known as kosa silk , tussar silk is highly valued for its purity and linear weaving texture. This type of silk is drawn from cocoons especially cultured on Arjun, Saja or Sal trees. Tussar silk is available naturally in shades of muted gold and mild beige. Tussar silk is considered ideal as well as auspicious for marriages, religious ceremonies and other functions. Sakhi uses tussar in its original hue in addition to dyeing the rich gold shade in wonderful colours with beautiful motifs, to make it suitable for today''s woman. Tussar, in combination with natural dyes like pomegranate, flower and fruit extracts exudes an understated yet classy elegance. Tussar also finds a special place in designer Chandra''s collection as it is one of her favourite fabrics.
Craft: Hand-Block Printing:
One of the earliest and simplest methods of textile printing, Block printing is, very simply put, the printing of patterns on textile using incised wooden blocks. Block printing involves myriad steps, but the most important step is the preparation of the block which determines the quality and clarity of impressions. The block is then dipped in the desired dye and carefully placed adjacent to the preceding impression of the block as per the design. Block print is popular across many Indian states, each region being known for its own, unique variant. Sakhi gives a contemporary twist to block print by combining modern graphic designs with traditional Indian motifs. The key differentiating elements of the designer ensemble are the hues used in varied colour themes.
* Please note the blouse worn by the model is a fashion suggestion and is not available with a Sakhi saree. However, every Sakhi saree comes with complementary blouse fabric.
