Handloom Handspun Natural Dyed Jamdhani Sari

An idea of a motif  travels from creative imagination to sketch to fabric,  across time and space. One is astounded when form and content come together with such precision and beauty.  Colors then only enhance rather than dominate such  natural elegance.   Reds, indigos and greens on their own, and with each other compliment this ensemble. 

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.

Greens in natural dyes are composite colors where the yarn is first dipped in pomegranate peel extract and then in indigo. Pomegranate (Piinica granatum L)  , rich in polyphenols contain yellow pigments. When dyed with anar / danima cotton hanks take on a rich and warm yellow.

Sari Length – 6.3 meters , sari length +  blouse
