Daram, the exclusive handloom store, is exhibiting authentic silk sarees from Chennai, from 7th to 15th January, at its store in Begumpet.
Fine printed sarees which can be worn both for parties and weddings with eye-catching colours will be on show. These sarees stand out because of their intricate designs on the pallu and the border. Motifs on the pallu are generally those of peacock, lotus, mango and other designs recreated from the antique paintings of Ajanta, the royal brocades of the Nawabs of Bengal, Mughal architecture and the ancient temple frescos of the south.
Traditional creative artistry and painstaking workmanship combine to form this handmade textile creation in fine mulberry silk, gold and silver zari. Hand block-printed silk sarees have fast, azo free colours and are created using steam discharge print, requiring skilled workmanship. Some very old copper outline heritage blocks with very fine outlines are used for traditional designs of Kutch, Sanganer, Kalamkari, Jama-E-War and Madhubani.
Daram is the only store in Hyderabad dedicated exclusively to garments made from handloom fabric. An initiative of Dastkar Andhra (DA), the Dastkar Andhra Marketing Association (DAMA) and partner co-operatives, it is an effort to promote the handloom process and, at the same time, make good quality garments available to customers at reasonable prices.
