Inspiring weaves from the North East – Assam Cotton sarees

One of the seven sisters of the North East region of India, Assam is known for its exceptionally good quality cotton, a soft, smooth and fluffy variety in abundance in the region. But natural that it has given rise to a cottage industry in handlooms in cotton and silk fabrics in the region that has gradually evolved into a major textile industry and a dependable means of livelihood.

Creative Charm of the Assam Cotton saree
Assam Cotton Saris are light in weight, comfortable, easy to carry all day and maintain. Raw materials used are mainly cotton, or more recently mercerized cotton, which is soft & shiny. Zari work or multi colored threads woven on these fabrics gives the rich feel. Beautiful patterns of fruits, flowers, diamonds, animals, birds or human figures are generally impressed on these Cotton Sarees. The tie and dye art is on display in the fine handloom creations in mercerized sico and pure cotton. The colours chosen are bright, deep and full of the vibrancy of Nature. What is especially noteworthy is the good use of thread work or embroidery that elevates an ordinary weave to an extraordinary work of art. The borders and pallu make good use of zari, that provide the right impetus to the look.

Kalamkari – life-like depictions on fine handloom salwar kameez

Kalamkari is from ‘Kalam’ (pen) and ‘Kari’ (craftsmanship), words taken from the Persian for the art of hand painting done on fabrics with the use of a pen and extended to include hand block printing. There are two schools of art that developed Kalamkari initially in India and from individual origins.
Srikalahasti style that used the pen for drawing and filling in the colours, and with a strong influence of Hindu culture that specifically focused on religious subjects and scenes from the epics Ramayana and Mahabharata in its paintings.

The Machilipatnam style that came with an Islamic slant, had subjects of paintings mostly depicting flora and fauna, with floral designs as a backdrop on the fabric.
Both styles that have popularised Kalamkari have one thing in common – the depictions are fine and neatly drawn, there is extensive use of organic colours which are fast, there is no dilution in the skill and quality over the years. Today’s Kalamkari has both styles merged into one with different facets within the art.

The essence of Kalamkari
Kalamkari on traditional fabrics like the salwar kamiz and saree showcases the simplicity, elaborate themes, sharp detailing and attractive motifs in a host of bright and pleasing hues. Kalamkari comes off beautifully on a whole lot of fabrics like silkcottonsico art silks such as georgette, chiffon, Supernetcrepe silk and others.
With vegetable dyes being used, colours are fast and long lasting. Motifs with trees, creepers, flowers, leaves, birds are popular subjects.

Gloss on the fabric comes from the traditional use of some natural substances such as myrobalan, cow’s milk, cow dung, seeds, plants and crushed flowers in the paintings. The etching of lines and applying of colour is done with a finely sharpened short bamboo piece which reflects the devotion and skill of the ethnic craftsmen to bring about such exquisite masterpieces despite the limited resources.
A time-consuming and arduous task, that involves patience and dedication, it is the sharpness of the lines, the fine details and the picturesque outcome that make this ethnic effort worth its while.

Kalamkari shalwar kameez in the printed variety have block prints featuring floral designs and geometrical patterns arranged in designer fashion. Modern abstract designs have also been included in recent times to resounding applause from the market.
Ethnic art is like any other art. It is however the toil and the effort in producing these exceptional works of detail and flawlessness despite the limited resources available, that truly give it its value.

Chettinadu Sarees, Designer Stylish Checks Saris Online, Chettinadu Handloom Cotton Saris Online, Unnati Silks

Chettinad, or Chettinadu in Tamil Nadu, India has contributed to the Indian cultural scene through its famed Chettinad style of cooking and the unique Chettinad sarees. The distinguishing features of the Chettinad sari are its seemingly heavy look and the striking colours that are achieved through a deft combination of stripes, checks and colour contrasts. The heaviness is attributed to the historical fact that the saree was worn without other accompaniments and in a different way from what is prevalent today. The saree was also said to be of shorter length than the conventional one, exposing the anklet portion of the wearers. The modern Chettinadu cotton sarees still maintain rudiments of the original version, but have been suitably modified to meet current day needs of the saree-wearers. With the base cotton fabric material and the hallmarks of thickness and huge ‘kandanghi’ borders are merged with trendy colourful designs and embroidery to create the elegant 'Chettinad magic'.

Buy Chettinad handloom sarees online at Unnati Silks
The general feature of the Handloom Chettinad cotton sarees has dark backgrounds with plain to lightly adorned motifs. Additionally beautiful naksi borders with floral designs and designer pallu or end piece 
with fascinating mango bootis in multi-colour thread work or shiny golden zari elevate the appeal of the Chettinadu cotton saree. There is another range of pastels, simple plain and unadorned but with evident self coloured checks weave and a dark contrast border. Current fashion sees geometrical patterns printed on the cotton base and a zari border and colourful pallu, giving that refreshing change for both traditional occasions and formal trendy corporate wear. The silk saree with printed checks, embellished with mirrors and sequins is that eye-catcher to be worn for special occasions, as at parties, high-profile weddings or even at special invitations.
