This is a heady saree, but one that doesn’t come by commonly. And by that virtue, it should be a part of a saree connoisseur’s wardrobe. Almost anybody with the slightest interest in saree’s would have heard of the Shikargah’s by now as a distinct theme in handwoven Benarasis that depict hunting expeditions of the Royals in a forest setting.
Vana Singaram is the Kanjeevaram take on it minus the hunting bit. This exquisite brocade weave shows a vibrant forest, seething with fauna and flora. Parrots, peacocks, roaring lions, majestic elephants and graceful deer. All in the midst of thick forest foliage. This aristocratic purple kanjeevaram has these scenes woven in a combination of gold and silver zari, taking it a notch above.
Once you overcome the awe of staring at this beauty, you may note this will be available at Somā: Elixir of Style & Class on September 26, 2018 | Wednesday | 10 am to 6 pm

The Finished Silk Saree ......
Handcrafted with lot of love ... #silksarees #handloom #lovecraft #benarasi #benaras #benarasisari #urbanethnicbags

Sea blue handloom pure silk Benarasi sari with floral antique gold zari pattern all over the body. A rich pallu and zari detail on the border and blouse piece!! #benarasisari #benarasisaree #silksari #silksaree #dolna_sari #handloomsilksarees

It is mighty frustrating when I’m not able to accurately capture the colour of my weaves. It’s like they choose to play hide and seek, playfully teasing me for the fact that I can’t ‘get hold’ of them.
Like the moon hides behind the clouds.
This is one such colour, a beautiful peacock blue. A tanchoi benarasi the delicate ‘jaal’ also takes on a peacock feather. As the rich silk ruffles, I can see fleeting glimpses of green, purple and pink.
Please drop by at Somā: Elixir of Style & Class if you want to unravel the mystery of this beautiful hue :)

Kattam means a defined space, which is enclosed, and has become associated with a sacred space. It is based on multiples of crosses, representing four directions and transforms into a magical grid. It is this grid which is drawn as “padi kolam” everyday by women in the households of South India, adorning the front of the main door to one’s home. The symbol created by astrologers as they draw an astrological chart is a reflection of this form as well. It is also the base of any architectural structure.
The Kanchipuram weavers give shape to various sizes of checks in yards of fine silk fabric, the pattern broadly known as ‘kattam’.
Translating to “milk and fruit” checks, the traditional Palum Pazhamum combination is in the auspicious colours of  red, yellow and green. (Ref: IndianSareeJournal.blog)
Thread Talk’s Palum Pazhamum uses bright pink, deep black and auspicious yellow as the three basic colours that blend to give rise to multi-coloured kattams. The saree is borderless but the pallu is a beautiful black with designs woven in gold zari. Comes with a plain black blouse piece and silk mark tag for quality assurance of the silk used.

Catching the festive fervor with Tanchoi - Tanchoi is a style of weaving which incorporates a single or double warp thread(s) coupled with two or more colour threads in the weft. The innovative master weavers of Varanasi introduced the zari work in the tanchoi weaving art to create different varieties of Banarasi silk tanchoi sarees.
