Indira Tanchoi Butta Pink

27,000.00 23,000.00

A part of the Indira Gandhi Centenary Year Collection, this saree is a recreation of one that belonged to Mrs. Indira Gandhi. We were asked to re-create some of her sarees for the Centenary Year celebrations, and this design was one of them. Since the collection included Benaras sarees, we were very excited as it gave us an opportunity to work with weavers from Benaras for the first time. Working with Tanchois was a learning experience for us as it is woven differently. The outcome was gorgeous and the saree looks like a painting. It is a three colour tanchoi which a lot of weavers are not doing anymore. If you look at the motifs, especially the buttas you will notice an outline in one colour and the filling in another; and the colours in the buttas alternate. The saree is woven in pure silk and comes with a blouse piece.
