Almost every single woman agrees that wearing ethnic sarees for a majestic look is more easily achievable than any other piece of clothing. It comes as no surprise, given that there has been a history of ethnic style for every single generation. Especially, when we talk about India, the default choice is captured by none other than the traditional ethnic fabric. Besides, when it comes to handloom, it’s not just the fabric, it’s more like pride. As Gujarati saree manufacturers and suppliers are going out of their way to make you look more majestic than ever, in this blog, we will have a look at the most stunning handlooms of Gujarat.
BANDHANI is the first choice of every bride to get in touch with the tradition along with sporting an elegant look. The Bandhani Saree isn’t just a 6-yard fabric but is more of a glorious history for the people in Gujarat. As the name was derived directly from the Sanskrit language “Bandh” meaning ‘to bind and tie’, it is also popularly known as tie & dye style. Where the makers bind small knots and dye them with their own hands. No wonder it’s the favourite part of every Indian saree brand. Lastly, you may find this, especially in Gujarat and Rajasthan.
Want to get the most magnificent look ever? Have you tried Patola? Patola from ‘Patan’ is the most expensive fabric of all time. In the early years, only the royal and aristocratic families could afford it. It was because of its extremely long process of dying each strand separately, which took almost half a year to make a single silk saree. However, it isn’t just popular for its price but also its weaving technique of double ikat pattern. Not to mention, its designs are most famous in traditional sarees.
Zari is the print traditionally made in silk fabric with fine gold and silver. In the traditional time, royal families used to wear fabric with these zari work in traditional sarees. These designs of embroidery are known as zardozi work. According to many studies, it was primarily famous in Banaras which is why the sarees of such prints are also known as “Banarasi saree”. However, it became more popular in the Mughal era and is now one of the most stunning handlooms of Gujarat.
The Kutchi Bharat is an embroidery type found and manufactured in the Kutch district of Gujarat. The most notable fact about this embroidery is that it’s mostly made by women with their hands only. Initially, the women of the area started it to meet their own clothing needs. However, later on, it became an unavoidable part of the Indian saree brands.
BLOCK PRINT/ WOODBLOCK PRINT
Woodblock printing is the most famous handicraft of all time. It is the slowest process one can do with their hands. Mostly, these types of patterns are seen on linen, cotton, and silk. However, it is more found close to silk sarees. This can be evident in many rural towns of Gujarat. Yet there is a strange fact about this art, for some people, it is ironic that the price of such fabric isn’t that high compared to the efforts in the process made.
