Petite Orchid Ghicha Tussar Banarasi Silk Hand Painted Saree
Ghicha is the silken yarn obtained from a cocoon that does not get included in the routine process of reeling in tussar silk directly from the cocoon. This yarn is generally used as a blend material with pure silk fabric, Katia silk, or pure cotton fabric.
Fabric: Pure Ghhicha Tussar Silk
Craft : Hand Painted Pichwai
Pichwai is created to depict the story of Shrinathji, another form of Lord Krishna holding the Govardhan hill. There is a beguiling history attached to the story. The dwellers of Vrindavan faced Lord Indra's (Lord of heaven) anger in the form of heavy thunderstorms and rains. Henceforth Lord Krishna came to the rescue. He lifted the Govardhan Hill, also called Govardhan Parvat, on his little finger. Lord Krishna lifted the Govardhan hill on his little finger, and all the people of Vrindavan took sanctuary under the mountain. Thereafter Lord Indra realized his mistake and stopped the tribulation. People since that time have been worshiping Govardhan Hill.
Originally Pichwai was painted on the handspun starched cotton fabric. The artisans would then sketch the art on that starched cloth. Then the decorative and beautiful images were created. The photos were then ready to be painted with organic and natural colors, paints, and even natural brushes.
Note- There may be slight color variations due to photographic reasons.
