Remember Mrs Nirmala Sitharaman wearing the exact saree just after she took over the office, with a different color pattern though. Here is our attempt on replecating the same design with a differernt color pattern. Sambalpuri Sarees are style with Substance. And our weavers work really hard to perfect each and every weave.
Sambalpuri Sarees have been made famous by Late Indira Gandhi, the former Prime Minister of India, as she used to wear them. They are noted for the ‘Baandhkala’ craftsmanship reflected in their unique patterns etched on multi-colored tones, known as ‘ikat’ or ‘bandha’. The conventional motifs incorporated in these Orissa sarees include shankha (conch-shell), chakra (wheel), phula (flower), rudraksha, animals, birds, fish, landscape and many geometrical patterns.
The Sambalpuri handloom sarees are not just a piece to be worn rather are a fabric which tells a story to the society. Sambalpuri uses the double ikat weaving which is famously known as Sambalpuri Ikat handloom. This intricate way of weaving pushes the handloom to be one of the hyped handlooms in the weaving world. The Sambalpuri Sarees were started off by the Bhulia community but became popular when Late Mrs. Indira Gandhi wore it. The prints of Sambalpuri Handloom Sarees are tie dyed and seem to be magic woven on yarns. The Odisha handloom sambalpuri Ikat sarees present some extraordinary creativity. Along with the bright colors and gorgeous textiles this pure sambalpuri saree becomes one of a kind.
