Bengal Cotton Scarf- Made on the handloom, using hand-spun cotton yarn, these patterns are woven into the fabric and then finished with pom-poms.
Jamdani Scarf- Gorgeous Jamdani scarf is handwoven on the loom, using fine hand-spun cotton yarn (khadi). We love this take on the traditional Jamdani weave from West Bengal, India. The temple motif in elegant blacks, gives this scarf a timeless feel.
The history of this royal weave can be traced back to the 3rd century BC, with its earliest mention in the Arthashatra, an ancient Indian text. This weave was principally practised by the skilled weavers of Bangladesh and came to the notice of the world as early as 1851, when it was displayed in all its glory in a London exhibition. As the years passed, weavers from Bangladesh settled in the Eastern parts of India and brought with them their skills and craft. Jamdani is one of the most labour intensive and skilful of weaving techniques, where threads are passed through the fabric while weaving, to create elaborate patterns and motifs.
Odisha Ikat Scarf- The stole is handwoven with Single Ikat -a process in which the weft yarns are dyed. It is intricately woven with Ikat technique by the Odisha weavers. Ikat is an elaborate dying process done with silk or cotton fabrics. Tie and dye or IKAT is a process of tying required portions of the same thread and dyeing them in the dye bath so that the dye penetrates in the untied portions without affecting the tied portions and repeating the process several times by untying and tying again and putting it in different dye baths to bring out a number of colors in the desired areas. These threads when woven gives out a beautiful fabric with light colored feathery patterns which are both sided against a dark background. The technique demands a lot of precision and the level of craftsmanship of the tier as well as the weaver decides the clarity of the motifs seen on the fabric.
Orissa Ikat dates back to the 12th century when artisans from the Patan region of modern day Gujarat migrated to Orissa and carried forward the craft.
Subtle variations are intrinsic to the charm and uniqueness of a handcrafted product.
