HANDLOOM TUSSAR SILK
“Gurubari Tussars” is all about exploring and experimenting with the tribe within you, through the aroma and textures of khadi tussars.
It’s a collection of handwoven and hand-spun textured desi tussar silk sarees from the quaint villages of Odisha. The women from the village remove the tussar threads from the wild cocoon and reel it on their thigh, which makes Gurubari desi tussar silk saree an exquisite creation. The weaver weaves it by hand on a dobby and jala stand loom which approximately takes a week to create one saree. Textile designer Anupriya Mridha along with the master weaver, conceptualizes it to a fusion of contemporary yet traditional 6-yards.
Nadi, the collection of pure Khadi Tussar saree is thoughtfully designed to a contemporary yet a traditional amalgamation. A variant three colored ikkat Kumbha design runs through both side borders with minimalistic use of traditional ikkat design and extra weft lines in the palla making it a piece of contemporary yet a classic weave. The texture of Khadi Tussar is smooth, as these are finely handspun and drapes beautifully. Along with a myriad of color options, Vani Vrtti presents you with the Nadi Khadi Tussar Sarees.
