A silk sari isn’t just a garment, it lets you have an insight into the Indian life; its style and traditionality reigns even today since the timeless classics. This one shown here is woven in a pure silk thread of royal purple shade, thus shining out the beauty and personality of the wearer. The uniqueness of this sari is that despite being so heavy and gracious, it is very light weight allowing it to be worn in absolute ease, forming well settled pleats. The entire sari is heavily loaded with white thick thread work of kantha hand embroidery. The weaver has beautifully showcased the combination of dark purple and white highlighting each and every aspect of its lavish beauty.
Kantha embroidery is a popular style that came into being from Bengal, where rural women uplifted their talents and skills by stitching this kind of embroidery on soft dhotis and saris. Now it is widespread and popular in demand around the globe. As also shown here, this type of hand embroidery is a simple running stitch on the cloth giving it a slight wrinkled and wavy effect. The complete sari is decorated with a plethora of embroidered paisleys, flowers and vines, hence giving a heavy look to the pallu and forming thick borders near the pleats. Adorning this royalty on any function or gathering will make you stand out in the crowd.
