Bandhini and Ajrakh Saree

Bandhini and Ajrakh on a gajji silk for an awesome combination. Two different and extremely beautiful art forms fused together on very rich silk. What more would you ask for? They come in a myriad of colours.  The body is generally bright on which bandhini work is done. Bandhini means knots which are made with hand and the fabric is dyed. It is a tedious process that brings out artist results. The pallu and borders have intricate ajrakh work. We have launched many colours. 

You can order yours through an email: kiran.sawhney@gmail.com
Price: Rs.11000/-

Utkal Lakxmi saree from Odisha

Sohum Sutras is today launching Utkal Laxmi silk saree. (Not cotton) It is one of the most expensive and exquisite Sambalpuri saree with lotus motifs. Lotus represents Goddess Laxmi. It is a complex process to weave this saree through try and dye method using so many colours that do not look out of place but are rather in sync. See all 3 pieces below.
Price: Rs.23770/-

I wore mine to a very interesting talk on Odisha weaves. I met a lot of Saree friends there as can be seen in the pictures.
