This saree has been woven by state award winner Master weaver Narayan Das and his wife Gurubari Das. She also happens to be VaniVrtti’s first weaver and the gurubari series is named after her.
The saree has been entered for National award this year.
It took more than a month for two master weavers to setup the loom for this design. A hundred Jalas are attached to the loom which are handpicked to create such an intricate design. It took the master weaver 45 days to create a piece.
The design is inspired by the famous Chilika lake of Odisha, hence it has been named “Incredible Chilika” The lake is the largest wintering ground for a host of migratory birds and home to a number of threatened species of plants and animals. There is a famous Devi temple named “Kalijai” on an island midst of lake Chilika. All of these elements are beautifully woven in the sari.
The concept, design and graph has been created by Textile Designer, Anupriya Mridha
