Fabric used:

Front - Our classic indigo ‘tara’ jamdani / dhonekhali handwoven stripes in happy - rani pink.
Reverse - cotton stripes and ‘rai daana’ block print.

We are known for our handwoven jamdanis; this one uses our ‘tara’ jamdani in classic indigo cotton khadi. The paired khaata uses fine handwoven 80s count cotton Dhonekhali, from the Dhonekhali cluster in West Bengal. Known for their fine handloom cottons, these sarees are most often used by women of the house for wearing inside the house. They become soft as muslin when washed and crisp when starched. The reverse of this, uses a red striped handweave and our signature ‘rai daana’ block.

These khaatas use handmade paper inside which is made of left-over fabric bits of cotton 'ganjee' hosiery which is mixed with jute fibre . This mix is made into a wet pulp and passed through a flat frame.The excess water is drained off and the paper pulp settles down. After drying, this turns into paper.

Handmade with love so that we do not lose the touch of the hand.
