"Vintage as it may seem around its matrix;
Depicting stories through the leaves on cloth,
Semi-monochromatic to its existence,
Sepia is the emotion to its soul"
What she feels
She showcases her inevitable brew of boldness, compassion, and benevolence in this red saree. The carpet motif comes inspired by the erratic breaths of nature as the borders feel equally at the helm.
This Chanderi silk is crafted with Bagru handblock printing. Bagru a small town near Jaipur internationally known for its craft called Bagru Block Printing. Yet, it’s hard to find words that can encompass the beauty of this craft. Chhipa the printer community who never stops working, starting with ridding the fabric of starch and other impurities with the help of soap water & When it is sufficiently dry, primed in a mixture of cool water and harda, a natural occurring tannic acid, reds for the dyes are made from fitkari, madder root, and babul gond. The blacks are made with syahi(fermented rust from burnt horseshoe, jaggery, and water). The vibrant blues, perhaps, take the longest, made from wells called Naand, leaving the indigo to ferment for months. As the man moves around his printing workshop, he can spot coriander sprigs, pomegranate rinds, and rose petals.
