“Lathe di chadar uttay saleti rang mahiya,
Aavo samne kolon di rus ke na lang mahiya”
Gazing into the mirror gliding around the house with lightness in her feet. The rhythmic chhan-chhan of her silver pajeb was unmissable. She sat near the pond and applying aalta on her feet. How striking would the aalta look against her rich silver woven saree, a sight still etched in her heart. Weddings and festivities always meant mithai thaal and dressing up in sarees for puja! And she would long to pick out the silver one, for how delicately it sat against her crimsoned feet longing for the deep blue night and the silver moon.
Feel the calmness of a full-moon night in this silver grey Maheshwari handloom saree.

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.

Maheshwari sarees are created by artisans in Maheshwar, a handloom cluster in Madhya Pradesh. The techniques used to weave these cotton-silk sarees have been passed down by weavers since the 5th century. According to folklore, the sarees were commissioned on the request of Queen Ahilyabai Holkar as gifts to visiting dignitaries and family. The sarees draw inspiration from the grandeur and intricate details of Madhya Pradesh’s forts, particularly Fort Maheshwar, and manifest in various patterns such as chattai (mat), chameli ke phool (jasmine flower), eent (brick) and heera (diamond) which are popular even today.
Originally made in pure silk, Maheshwari sarees were later woven in pure cotton as well as a mix of silk and cotton. Darker shades gave way to lighter hues. A unique feature about these sarees is the bugdi (reversible border), which allows them to be worn both ways. Based on their design, Maheshwari sarees are known by distinct names: Chandrakala, Baingani Chandrakala, Chandratara, Beli and Parbi. The first two have plain designs, while the other two feature checks or stripes in their designs.
