Unlike machine printed sarees, handmade prints are more natural. The colors don’t run as easily, and the blocks last longer. But they’re also more laborious and expensive.
The weavers extract mulberry silk and process it with natural dyes. They then weave it on a traditional handloom, adding intricate zari borders and patterns to the saree. This creates gorgeous Maheshwari silk sarees that are perfect for weddings and other formal occasions.
Other types of handmade sarees are made with the block printing technique. For example, warli prints feature geometrical motifs and tribal designs. They’re often worn as casual or semi-formal attire. They can be paired with blouses and dupattas that are designed to match the style. They’re also popular with women looking to add a touch of ethnicity and culture to their outfits.
The block print is a traditional form of printing on fabric that uses engraved wooden blocks to create different patterns. The fabric is dyed and then the pattern is stamped onto it using a number of blocks. Each block has a specific color and design element on it. A simple print requires only a few blocks, while a complex one can need dozens of them.
The printed saree is then dried, ironed and checked for quality. It is then ready to be packed and shipped out!
