Material: Crepe Silk
Crepe features among the most popular fabrics made from silk yarn. Lustrous in visual appeal, crepe silk has a glamorous sheen and an excellent drape. It has a slippery smooth texture, with a crisp appearance. Crepe is woven from hard spun yarn in its natural condition. The fabric, when woven, is smooth and even. Once the resin is extracted, the fabric becomes soft, giving it a crimpy look. Sakhi uses this comfortable-to-wear, fluid silk to create designs that can be worn at all times.
Craft: Bandhini Border Attach
Bandhni was introduced in Jamnagar, India when the city was founded 400 years ago. The tie and dyed fabric takes its root from Gujarat and is a well kept secret of India. This craft form is also known as Bandhej or Bandhni. This art form is created by dyeing the cloth in such a manner that many small resist-dyed 'spots' are produced and then dyed in contrast colours to create interesting designs in simple or elaborate patterns. Over the years this art form has been evolved by local artisans and at Sakhi has used a unique technique called Border attach wherein the Bandhini patch is appliquéd onto the saree to form the Border and Pallu detailing.
Craft: Mirror Work
This craft features minute flat mirrors placed carefully on fabric and stitched by hand. Mirrors are glass-like, fragile, decorative elements available in numerous shapes. Sakhi weaves this craft in an unconventional fashion on a range of fabrics. Sequins and mirror work, in combination with hand-block print or cut work among other crafts, gives rise to interesting, unique creations.
