Handloom Handspun Natural Dyed Jamdhani Sari
Traditionally, when markets were local, colors were used sparingly for edges and pallu, just as highlights to the undyed kora body. This sari is reminiscent of that tradition. The thin yellow line above the solid border adds that extra oomph to this sari. The pallu border adds richness with the indigo red cross color.
Blue Lotus dyers use natural indigo extracted from Indigofera tinctoria plants , directly sourced from indigo extractors in South India. Indigo is reduced to its soluble state, during which time cotton hanks is repeatedly turned to take up the color. It is then oxidized to its insoluble form during which time rich tones of blue are absorbed on the yarn surfaces.
Reds and hues around red are dyed using alizarin and madder. Alizarin is a dye and a pigment used from ancient times that yields a rich red and pink hue. While originally it was extracted from the common madder Rubia tinctorum roots, it was synthesized in the 1870s from the anthraquinone group. In Andhra, jajaku, leaves from the local forests are used to deepen the tones of red.
Pomegranate (Piinica granatum L) , rich in polyphenols contain yellow pigments. When dyed with anar / dannima cotton hanks take on a rich and warm yellow. Depending on the weather, humidity and materials used by the handloom weaver on the heddles, resultant fabric color varies from rich vibrant yellows to darker overtones.
