Indigo sari with  off white checks and  red  pallu & jamdhani motifs 

Handloom Handpsun Natural Dyed Jamdhani sari 

Indigo and white is an all time favorite, formal yet with hint of the rebel. When red is added as the weft filler in the pallu, two  short colors emerge, the lightness of red when woven with kora , which highlights the rich deep red & indigo short. The extra weft motifs are subdued laid on a rich and nuanced color, hint of  the floral  that peek out to bring playfulness  in this sari. The indigo stripes in the blouse accentuate the body and the pallu. A bold, rich and nuanced wear!

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.
