$42 Incl of GST

Slow, soulful and sustainable, this beautiful handwoven pure tassar silk Bagh stole is a vibe! Handwoven in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. We are reimagining Bagh prints with our own take on it with a series of prints inspired by both nature and culture. A meandering of a drawing inspired by ‘patterns in nature’ turned into a beautiful block print. The border motif of double spiral representing ‘Eternity’ is inspired by Aipan ceremonial drawings as practiced in Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. These were printed in Village Bagh using natural dyes by Arif Mohmd. Khatri Ji. The color combination of the kora off white silk and deep red derived from Tamarind seed paste is gorgeous here which you will appreciate even more in person!

Bagh Print: Bagh Print is a traditional Indian handicraft originating in Bagh, Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. The process is characterized by naturally sourced pigments and dyes. The river Baghini that runs through the village provides the much needed water which is the foundation of this craft. It is believed that the copper and lime rich water bring out the rich colors of natural pigments and also helps make the colors fast. The most common colors are red and black over a white background. To make the dyes, pigments like ferrous sulfate and alum are boiled in water and mixed with tamarind seed powder to make a paste which acts as black and red dyes respectively.
