Handwoven Cotton Paithani Saree With Resham Bootis All Over, Zari Border With Lines In Contrast Colour, Asawali Pallu In Zari.
It’s a handloom Saree in 100% pure Cotton, handwoven in a village of Maharashtra and the craft is called Paithani. It is a 2000 year old weave and the craft of Paithani weaving dates back to the Satvahana Dynasty that ruled between the second century BC and the second century AD. Despite the craft being centuries old, the Paithani sari is still woven in the same traditional manner. It is done with the same tapestry technique as used in the weaving of a Persian rug. Multiple threads of different colours along with gold and silver threads are woven together to form this fascinating piece of fabric / Saree. The weaving process is complex, begins from choosing raw material and precious metals to the final product.
The characteristic feature of a Paithani is its full brocade pallu in Zari with floral & bird motifs in Resham. The origin of Paithani weaving started by using cotton warp and silk only in border and pallu. In between, for a long period Cotton Paithani weaving had gone in hibernation as it had lost its popularity and thus weavers had stopped weaving. During our travels to weaver’s village, in 2016 we happened to chance upon 2 pieces that were huddled up & lying in a corner. We at artisan saga decided to reintroduce these in the market and soon, within a year , it regained its popularity.
This Saree is off white in colour, with slight lemony tint & with a contrast colour grey border with Zari lines woven on it and running across its length. The body of the Saree has woven Resham bootis which are unique in quite contemporary design, and the pallu is in brocade with Resham motifs of Asawali pattern which is a floral motif introduced by the Peshwas. It has a running blouse piece attached to it, in the same body colour with border on both sides.
Here’s a unique addition for your wardrobe. This Cotton Paithani Saree is very different. This kind of colouring, booti is hard to come by. It has a pleasant and a cool feel and gives an artsy vibe. Wear it for casual outings and get noticed. This is a conversation starter.
