Pink sari with indigo checks and indigo pallu & jamdhani motifs
Handloom Handpsun Natural Dyed Jamdhani sari
Pink is quite unusual in a natural dye palette. This when combined with classic blue makes for a collector’s sari! The blouse stripes pick up from the pallu, but in multitudes of colors that will make for a very different wearing experience. For the extra weft motifs in the pallu, the weaver combines understated yellow and reds which highlight the checks in the body and the stripes in the blouse, peeking out playfully only to a keen observer.
Pinks are dyed using Oldenlandia umbellate roots, locally known as chaval kodi. Depending on the time in the bath and the local water, different pinks emerge, from the light tints to the deep peach and faded roses.
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.
