A lion, despite his mighty power, became cowardly when he heard a rooster crowing. One day he ran into an elephant who, being bothered by a gnat, kept flapping its ears. The lion immediately understood that even the strongest animal has some weakness.(Story from Aesop’s Fables)

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.
Heritage and Origin
Khandua, also known as Ikat, is a traditional Odiya weave famous for its exquisite craftsmanship and depiction of Bandha art. The use of motifs depicting human and natural forms, flora and fauna, temple architecture and geometrical patterns enhances its appeal. Award-winning weavers in Odisha have been reimagining weaving and dyeing techniques to keep this art form alive and, in the process, preserve India’s timeless culture.
