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.
Steeped in history and an ancient culture which is believed to date back to the Vedic period, Chanderi, a small town in Madhya Pradesh, is surrounded by lush hills, forests and lakes. It is also home to one of the most famous handloom clusters in India, where weaving has been a part of the town’s socioeconomic character for centuries. The eponymous Chanderi fabric, which is made from a mix of silk, cotton and zari, is unique for its translucence and sheer texture. Traditionally, motifs were inspired by the town’s surrounding natural beauty and incorporated elements such as animals & birds, flowers, heavenly bodies and even gold coins (asharfis). Chanderi sarees are made using a technique called tana-bana, or the warp and weft method.
The production of Chanderi fabric (including the motifs) has evolved with time. Till about 50 years ago, all handwoven fabrics had soft, natural hues and muted tones. Since then, weavers have incorporated vibrant colours and vivid combinations in their looms. Katan silk is a type of fabric which is made by intertwining filaments of silk which gives it a firm and durable character. Katan originated in Persia and became popular in India during the Mughal reign.
