This chanderi silk saree is crafted with Kashish Dabu Handblock printing. Kashish printing is a mineral dying process that involves the use of dye and a resist. The characteristics of this dye are a full range of grey, khaki, brown, and red shades. The use of kashish dye is more prevalent in Bagru (Jaipur). Printers use Harda (naturally occurring tannic acid) as a pre-treatment to achieve lighter shades of brown. Darker shades are acquired by the addition of boiled pomegranate rind solution to dyeing.
It’s a Handprinted Chanderi Silk Saree which is silk by cotton fabric. It’s a 5.5 mtr saree drape with an exclusive 80 cm blouse piece to go with. Recommended separate wash in cold water with mild detergent only or dry-clean & there are chances of color bleeding which is a sign of the genuineness of prints and dying.
