Unnati Silks Designer Applique work Sarees Online

unm14889_b1Appliqué work in India was once mainly practised in Pipli, Odisha, especially for banners during the Lord Jagannatha Rath Yatra. But today it also finds use as adornment on large canvas fabrics like the saree. The same principle of affixing patches is followed as was earlier but with designs that are modern, abstract and trendy that appeal to the market.

Banner making to fabric art – Appliqué work

Appliqué work refers to the technique by which patterns are created by attaching a smaller coloured patch onto a larger base fabric mostly of contrasting colour or texture. The attaching could be by stitching, or gluing the patch on the larger fabric.The edges of the patch may have the ends folded under or left as they are. The unm12650_1attaching is done by straight stitch, satin stich or reverse Appliqué. Embroidery machines have taken over what earlier used to be done by hand. Its application is best suited for any work that has to be viewed from a distance such as banners.

The special appeal of Appliqué work on sarees The motifs for the Appliqué may be white or coloured with the fabric body of contrasting colour and could have intricate embroidery and mirror work also to make it highly ornamental. Motifs generally are elephant, parrot, peacock, duck, creepers, flowers such as lotus and jasmine.

Half moon, Sun and Rahu (mythical Rakshasa) are also popular subjects. Colours used are limited to red, green, blue, brown and black.

unm12649_1_1Also contrasts are followed but with a wide range of colours and hues. There is a shift to chemical colours without insistence on organic dyes alone. Patterns and motifs while still including traditional ones have now become more varied and colourful.

The new charm of the fusion Chanderi Sico sarees

unm16142Chanderi in M.P., India is traditionally the home of the famed Chanderi sarees, known for the stylistic Bootis and extraordinary threadwork on fine weaves in silk and cotton. With plain to moderately adorned patterns or motifs and small but attractive coloured borders and exquisite pallus with some adornment, Chanderi sarees have been popular for the extremely fine texture and sheer quality. The entry of the Chanderi Saree in its new avatar of fusion Sicos (blends in silk and fine cotton) has again sparked fresh interest in a fabric that since traditional times has never ceased to amaze.

The charm and allure of the Chanderi Sico Saree

Enhancing the beauty further is the ‘Booti’, ‘Butti’ or motif, which is an interlaced, hand-woven, shape, consisting of gold, silver or copper coated threads. The Asharfi Butti, or Gold Coin shaped Booti has been a popular choice since earlier times, though the pure gold or silver used in its making has given way to tested Zari, which is woven from synthetic yarn by needles of different sizes. The bigger version of the ‘Butti’ is popularly known as ‘Butta’.

unm16144A major difference in the making methods is that the ‘Bootis’ of hand-woven Chanderi saris, retain their shape and appearance throughout the life of the fabric, with no thread coming out from the ‘Butti’ structure. Buttis once only hand-woven on the fabric, have been replaced by gold-printed ‘Butti’prints on the silk fabric body.

Comfortable cotton sarees from Madurai

unm15225_b1Madurai in Tamil Nadu, India, is known for its Madurai Cotton Sarees. A handloom creation of Saurashtrians (migrants from Gujarat, India), who settled in Madurai, about a century ago, these Sarees are woven from highly mercerized cotton and block printed and are known as Sungari or Sungudi. Being 100% cotton and dyed by extracting natural colours from leaves, the Madurai Cotton Saree is designed with many tiny dots on the main body, with detailed embroidery work on the borders. The colour of the border generally contrasts that of the body. Thin, light and made of pure cotton or polyester cotton, the Madurai Cotton Sari derives its look from the mercerization of the cotton that is used for the fabric. Mercerization is the treatment that gives lustre and strength to the fabric.

unm15222_b1The universal appeal of Madurai cotton sarees

The Madurai Cotton saree has the ability to absorb heat and is best for summers or hot climatic conditions. It does not cause any allergy, and is not at all expensive. It is also easy to maintain. The Madurai Sari, is known for its more than usual length of forty eight inches compared to the standard length of forty four and its border is generally multi-coloured and very dotted. It shares similarity with the Bandhani type Sarees by way of the dot designs. Affordably priced , the Madurai Cotton Saree, once worn for its simplicity and comfort by middle aged and elderly women and mostly on festival days and special occasions, has today, undergone a sea change. 

unm15214Trendy designs and patterns with exquisite borders and attractive motifs have given the Madurai Sungari a new look, making it a must-buy for all age groups and a widely accepted choice for daily and occasion wear.

The dreamy outcomes of the exotic Bandhani

unm14203_ffBandhani or Bandhni or Bandhej, a highly-skilled process involving the Tie-Dye method, has the base fabric first tied at several points by threads and then the threads are dyed. The manner in which the tying is done decides the resulting pattern, which could be Leheriya, Mothra, Ekdali or Shikari. Patterns which emerge are generally dots, strips, waves or squares. Fabrics like Bandhani sarees are made of cotton, silk, crepe, georgette, chiffon, satin, supernet or such. Dark Colours employed for dyeing the ‘Bandhini’ could be natural or artificial. Principally applied colours being red, green, blue, black or yellow, the background is generally red or black.

The variety in Bandhani sarees

unm14200_fThe Khatri community of Kutch in Gujarat is known to excel in this art. Works like, tying of thousands of miniscule knots on the Bhandhani fabric that spread and form exquisite designs on opening after the dyeing process, speak volumes for their skill. Bhuj, Mandvi in Kutch and Saurashtra in Gujarat, India, are known for their individual varieties in Bhandhani sarees. Rajasthan again has its own style of Bandhani, unique to its region. Designs and colours differ, with significance attached to certain colours. Red conveys a newly married bride, yellow for a recently become mother, are typical examples. There is a special attraction to the Leheria Bandhej sarees in the Bandhini range known for their unique wave designs, evolving from a brilliant exercise of the tie and dye art that has created waves in the fashion world for the simplicity and appealing look on plain coloured fabrics. Leheria work is done on silk or cotton fabric and on long and broad canvases like turbans and sarees.

unm14192_ffCaptivating process of the Bandhani saris

The process of getting the unique Leheria saree involves rolling the fabric and tying resists at various spots on the cloth and then rolled diagonally from one corner to the opposite selvage. This rolled fabric is then dyed according to the usual tie and dye process in bright colours. When the fabric is unfolded after dyeing, it leaves a lot of stripes or other shapes at intervals across the fabric in a design. Several tie and dye processes are undergone if required, to create a myriad of colourful stripes across the fabric length. Indigo is used in the last few stages of the process. Mothara is a special ‘lentil design’, popular and achieved by the re-rolling of the unfolded first stage in the opposite direction and the resist tied at the diagonal end and repeating the dye process. The resulting checkered design has un-dyed areas at regular intervals which are the size of a lentil.
