Handloom sarees are much in limelight, be it Baluchuri Sarees, Kanchipuram Sarees, Tussar Sarees, Banarasi Sarees… it’s an exceptional job by weavers to bring out the beautiful output. Andhra Pradesh is one of the states with highest no. of hand weaver families, isn’t it great?!
Started in 1980, Unnati Silks is specialised in traditional Handloom Sarees with its master weavers and craftsmen across India. Aims to foster and encourage the skills and craftsmanship of the Indian handloom weaver, by providing opportunities for growth.
Later on, they have expanded to other product range: Salwar kameez, Kurthi, and other traditional essentials. You can check out their collections at www.unnatisilks.com
The one which I wore is a ‘Hand Painted Kerala Cotton Saree’. The Kerala Cotton Saree adapted from Mundum Neriyathum, the traditional attire of Malayali women in the South Indian state of Kerala. Saree is crafted by the weavers of Kerala.
I chose to pair a multicolor embroidery blouse (Thanks to my mom who picks it up for me). I always preferred green color in saree, looks so soothing and since it’s cotton, a perfect pick for summer. You can always go with golden color blouse since it has a golden border to it or a multicolor blouse. I never prefer blouse which is attached to saree, well! That’s when we can experiment on pairing the unusual right.
I wore a smile instead of accessories! Too cheesy isn’t it? 😀 By the way, I like to keep it simple hence I wore gold hangings to complement saree border and Kolhapur footwear to flaunt.
Stay tuned for more updates 🙂
