The light weight cottons

Posted by Deepika Suresh on

Our light weight cotton saris are woven on a power loom and are hand block printed with pigmented dyes. They have a thread woven border that highlights the entire look.

These light weight saris can be draped with ease and will stay put throughout the day, making it a perfect work wear.

We procure the fabric from Andhra, design them and send it to our artisans for hand block printing.

 Do the saris have an attached blouse?

These saris come with an attached blouse. Some blouses are plain with the same border as the sari, while the others have simple prints.

What is the nature of the fabric?

The sari is of a soft and supple nature. It is partially translucent and thus, the blouses will have a better look when stitched with a lining.

Some of these saris are woven using a technique called ‘missing weave’, where the weft yarn is found missing at regular intervals.

What is the weight of the sari?

These saris are very light and can be carried with utmost comfort!

The ‘missing weave’ saris weigh around 375 grams while the normally woven saris weigh about a hundred grams more.

What is the height of the sari?

The height reference is with an average height woman (5ft 5inches)

How to take care of your light weight cottons?

  • Hand-washing the saris in cold water with mild detergents will ensure longevity of your saris! These are some of our favourite laundry detergents.

      1. Godrej Eeze liquid detergent

      2. Genteel liquid detergent

      3. Wipro Safe Wash liquid detergent

  • Using starch is according to your personal preference.
  • We recommend ironing of the sari before wearing it to ensure the perfect drape. However, the iron must be set to the minimum temperature before using it.
  • Store the saris in a cool and dry place with a few mothballs
