Our Prakritik collection denotes “Dyeing sarees the natural way".
Weavers & artisans have used naturally occurring dyes for thousands of years.
We at Vani Vrtti are rediscovering the joy & abundance of natural colors and the benefits of using them. We have combined the skills of our pure natural fiber handloom and handcrafted sarees with the utmost beautiful experience of dyeing its yarns in naturally derived pigments.
At Vani Vrtti we have mostly used vegetable dyes derived from leaves, flowers, fruits, stems, roots, few mineral and insect resins-based natural dyes. Many of our natural dyed sarees are treated with Haldi providing healing properties to our skin. Also, you will be experiencing unique organic fragrances as you closely inhale the saree surface.
