White Pure Moonga Silk Handloom Banarasi Dupatta
Category: Full-Length Pure Moonga Silk Banarasi Handloom Dupatta
This beautiful piece of art is inspired by Kani weave of Kashmir. In Kashmiri, Kani means ‘small sticks’, essentially wooden spools, or BOBBINS, which are used to weave each color in separately, thereby creating the famously meticulous patterns; it is a technique also known as interlocking twill, tapestry, because the warps and wefts are set in a diagonal structure on the loom. As they work, the weavers follow an artistic sketch of the finished design along with the precise, coded instructions set out on a grid. The level of detail and craftsmanship that goes into kani weaving is incredibly time-consuming.
Fabric - Pure Moonga Silk
It is known for its resilience. It can be given a fine texture by dry ironing it in a damp state or it can attain a crushed look by not getting ironed. This is one unique fabric where the golden luster increases with age. Moonga silk is very soft in texture and very easy to drape.
Color - White
Weave - Meenakari floral jaal
Note- There may be slight color variations due to photographic reasons.
This is a hand-woven product and any irregularities in the weaving or pattern should not be taken as a defect. These irregularities make every handloom piece unique.
