She looked at herself in the mirror. Her skin shone with good health. Her hair, parted in the middle, was carefully combed and set. Her tiny gold earrings added a hint of sparkle to her face.

While every effort is made to present the sarees in their natural colours, subtle variations between images and actual colours may be the result of lighting conditions and digital photography, and the colour/screen settings of your digital devices.
Slight irregularities are inherent to the process of creating traditional handwoven fabric. Instead of taking away from the beauty of the saree, they enhance its uniqueness and charm. The irregularities attest to the fact that the saree is a genuine, handcrafted product.
Ghicha (or Gheecha) silk yarns are primarily produced in Bihar, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh. The silk is a by-product obtained during the production of traditional Tussar or Eri silk. The production of Ghicha silk involves a manual and laborious process - the threads from the cocoons need to be pulled out delicately by hand (hence the name Ghicha or Gheecha) and reeled manually. Due to this process, the silk yarns are shorter in length. Although manual reeling gives Ghicha silk a coarse characteristic, the finish is smooth and lustrous. Ghicha silk yarn is also used as a blend in other silks such as Katia silk or pure cotton. Ghicha silk sarees often depict hand-painted tribal art or the region’s rich flora and fauna which are brought alive using vibrant, lively colours.
