That night she saw something surreal. A peacock with a flaming pink body was strutting about aimlessly on shimmering off-white sand, as if waiting for the right moment. Suddenly, there was lightning followed by a clap of thunder. It was a signal for the majestic bird – it opened its feathers and started dancing. She could see the colours of the feathers very clearly: green, pink and yellow. Mesmerised, she reached out to touch the peacock. It let out a loud scream and vanished. Her eyes opened to the shrill sound of the alarm.

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.
Bhoodan Pochampally, a small town in Telengana (previously Andhra Pradesh), is renowned for its illustrious association with textile production, particularly handwoven Ikat sarees in cotton, silk and sico (blend of silk and cotton). The cluster of 100 villages comprise more than 10,000 families involved in the weaving process. The Ikat sarees can be single Ikat or double Ikat: in single Ikat, either the warp or the weft is tie-dyed while in double Ikat, both the warp and the weft are tie-dyed. What sets apart Pochampally sarees from sarees produced in other regions are intricate, full-body geometric patterns which are said to induce a hypnotic effect if seen directly. These sarees also incorporate motifs and designs from other regions in India, including Patola and Rajkot designs from Gujarat and traditional Rajasthani designs. Handwoven sarees are produced on traditional looms – each of which is more than a century old – using environment-friendly and sustainable processes. It takes nearly 10 days for an entire family working together to weave one saree.
