My hands will always remain beautiful as long as they touch the silk yarn", said the artisan to his little son. The boy's eyes lingered on his father's hands worn by years of labor, but then his twinkled as he thought of the masterpieces that he would create with those strands of silk when he grew up.
The lustrous silk threads were reverently touched by the artisan before he began to weave. Warli painting and kalamkari applique work has been used to depict the harvest season on handwoven silk, it is a fine blend of tradition and virtuosity. In the past, this artwork was done by the village women of Maharashtra as part of a ritual, and stories blossomed on the walls of the mud huts. The artisan celebrates the harmony between life and nature, it can be seen in the artwork that he creates. Kalamkari applique work adds an interesting dimension to the piece. The wrap is backed with fine silk in a contrasting shade of orange. Discover these art-infused wraps exclusively at Niiyaa.
