This is our signature Monique dress . We love everything about it ! 

Woven in soft jamdani muslin cotton , with handwoven buta motifs in shaada (white) and shades of indigo, this dress has a free flowing style with soft gathers along the waist and touches of indigo ikat.  Layered with an inner dress in white - indigo ikat. 

We love how the zari hemline is a woven gold and silver from front to back. 

Its time to fall in love with Monique ! 

What is a Jamdani ?

A jamdani weave is a prime example of the power of handweaving since the entire process of weaving the motifs is extremely time consuming and done completely by hand.

The motifs are woven by a thicker yarn, called the extra supplementary weft which is woven one line at a time, to make the individual motif, along with the standard weft technique of weaving the base of the fabric. The base is usually of a sheer yarn than the motifs which is opaque on the surface. 

In a good jamdani, the motifs on the back of the fabric, will be the same neatness as the front , which speaks volumes for the skill of the weaver and the tenacity with which he weaves every single piece. 

This one is for keeps.
