Muga ghicha Kalidaar | Kashmiri pashmina & zari shawl | Kanchipuram Zari weaves
Spoken for
Hand spun hand woven Muga ghicha woven in Arunachal Pradesh is stitched as many panels into a Kalidaar or multi-panelled skirt. The Kurti retains the subtle monotony through use of same fabric. The Kalidaar border has an asymmetrical patchwork of Kanchipuram weaves.

The monotones of the ensemble are brought into elegance using dual toned Pashmina, where Pashmina is woven with zari thread. As borders, I used some intricate Kanchipuram zari borders.

I visualise this Kalidaar as a timeless heirloom shared between mother and daughter.



Andaṅgā is one of a kind textile designed to highlight a unique coming together of various techniques and creativity of handcraft. This design will not be recreated.
