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: Cut Work:
Whether it is for an evening out or to make one feel beautiful during the day, cut work is a form of fine needlework that complements any hour. In this form of embroidery, portions of the background fabric are cut away and the edges worked over in buttonhole stitches. The applications of this craft include bold elaborate pallus with understated borders hand embroidered with cut work, or unique combinations with complementing block prints. Kerala in south India along with the Banaras and Bengal regions in north India are well known for cut work. Sakhi celebrates cut work on sarees and salwars, adding verve by infusing cut work with tissue applique, to make every occasion special.
