A sheer, feather-like open weave fabric that is mildly heavier and more crisp than silk gauze,organza silk is traditionally made from the continuous filament of silkworms. It has a smooth, flat finish and sports a characteristic shine, obtaining its stiffness from tightly twisted yarns. At Sakhi, organza silk finds its way into day and evening wear designs. The use of intricate hand embroidery on this preciously delicate silk makes it the epitome of elegance.
Craft: Shadow Work:
A very subtle and interesting form of embroidery, shadow work uses sheer fabric in a manner wherein only the bare outline of a pattern appears on the surface, revealing the crisscrossed threads underneath, creating a shadow pattern. It is the opacity of the threads, worked on translucent sheer fabric, which defines this form of embroidery. The herringbone stitch reverses the shadow stitch by inverting the right side, revealing the actual thread in place of the shadow. Shadow work appears both delicate and intricate. Sakhi uses this effect in a variety of ways, making its garments versatile and stylish.
* 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.
