How does the saree look in real?

Like the feathers of a peacock, silk fiber also has a unique sheen and lustre due to its physical and chemical structures which enhances the reflection of light. The photographs on the website, shot by the trained photographers, using the most advanced cameras are unedited to give you the actual picture of the saree.

 How do I take care of my saree?

We recommend you to dry clean your saree, when needed. You must air your saree every once in a while, and also refold your drape regularly to avoid creasing at the same location over a period of time.

It is also advisable to store silk sarees in a breathable, uncolored, muslin cloth in a dry location. Also keep the saree away from moisture as direct and constant contact with moisture can spoil the silk saree and the zari. Moreover, it’s also advisable to avoid ironing directly on the zari and also bringing the silk saree in direct contact with perfumes.

 Why do your Kalamkari sarees smell like milk?

 Our Kalamkari sarees are the most authentic, every step being done manually. It involves 24 steps; starting from washing to remove starch to dyeing and drying, until washing it in Swarnamukhi river. Milk is the most vital ingredient in Kalamkari art since it helps in applying the color only to the areas required. It prevents the running of one dye color into other dyed areas of color. The smell of milk is a sign of the authenticity of Kalamkari.

Market is flooded with fake kalamkari fabrics with digital prints Kindly do your research prior to purchasing.
