Making Handwoven Silk, Hand Batik Printed 


Purple is the colour of calm and creativity. In the ancient times, the fabric traders obtained the dye from small mollusks found in the Tyre region of the Mediterranean sea.

Since only the affluent rulers could afford to buy the colour, it got to be associated with the imperial classes. At times it got too expensive for them too. As the story goes, the Roman emperor Aurelian did not allow his queen to buy a shawl created from Tyrian purple silk because it cost its weight in gold. This traditionally crafted piece has been given a contemporary twist to add a unique vocabulary on fabric.The batik printed checks enhance the sophistication and beauty of this royal piece, and also accentuate the mystic appeal. It is a must-have in your wardrobe.
