Clear blue skies, white clover weed, the new sprouts of the clay covered seeds, good water, good air, good heart and glowing mind.
Good seed bears good fruits. Good fruit bears good seeds.
Yet another garden.
Make good seed.
I like a garden where tamed and wild grow together.
Delicate and hardy grow together.
Old and new grow together.
The drape and pallu of the sari carry the back strap loom weaves as a continuous running panel between the Eri silk.
The base and pleats are handspun, natural dyed Eri silk woven on throw shuttle loom of Kamrup district Assam.
To bring gentleness to this whole geometry, Param added the beadwork, each bead at a time, slowing down time, scaling down the magnification to a few mm.
I like this gentle playfulness.
This can also be a winter Sari if you drape it like a shawl. And will be most suitable on an occasion of weddings or other festivities when you do not wish to wear a jacket, cape or shawl over your beautiful Sari. When your Sari can keep you warm and snug, then why anything over it! Hence, a winter Sari!
About Eri Silk and Natural dyeing
Eri Silk is a wild silk with a wooly fibrous filament hand spun into yarn, handwoven on traditional throw shuttle looms of Assam. It is elegant in drape, subtle in appearance and the texture of fabric does not carry obvious lustre that we typically associate with silk. Eri Silk being a protein fibre absorbs most natural dyes.
Natural Dyeing involves a series of high precision steps to bring out the adequate conditions for textiles to absorb and retain dye. With non-injury as our core totem, we have given colour to this fabric using those natural sources that are procured locally, leaving least violent footprints on life and nature. The dye raw material is natural i.e. plant and resin based, instantly compostable, non-industrial and non- toxic.
