This saree uses
pure Silk warp and weft.
It has the soft feel and subtle sheen which you associate with a silk product.
In this Pochampally Ikat saree, the design motifs are first resist-dyed onto the warp or the weft threads, or sometimes both, and then diligently woven into a saree on a handloom. It takes great patience & craftmanship to weave these sarees as the warp and weft threads need to intersect perfectly to re-produce the preset pattern. A true work of art.
The saree measures approximately 5.4 meters (220 inches) in length, 1.10 meters (44 inches) in width and 550 g in weight.
The saree comes with an unstitched blouse piece measuring 70-80 cms. Please refer to the last product image for a snapshot of the blouse piece. The blouse that the model is wearing is for illustration purpose only.
To see the richeness of the weave and zari in a handwoven saree, we recommend you see the fabric along the length.
In a handloom saree, the motif yarns and zari, if any, run across the width, and the richness of motifs is more visible when your line of sight is perpendicular to these motif yarns,
ie when your sight runs along the length of the saree.
