Handwoven, soft and charming Bengal Cotton saree in deep purple, adorned with delicate silver flowers and a thin silver border.
Handwoven Bengal Cotton
Size: Standard Saree Length with running blouse piece
Known as 'tant', the Bengal cotton saree's hallmark is the use of locally grown cotton, whose handspun yarn adds to the feather-like texture.
The simplest of tant sarees take about 10-12 hours to weave and the more intricate ones can take up to 4-5 days. The designs are drawn by an artist and transcribed onto soft cardboards by perforating them which are then suspended from the loom.
Hand embroidery is a time-intensive process of embellishing the cloth with colourful threads, beads or sequins. It is an art which is made with help of needle and thread creating beautiful patterns on the fabric.
The origin of embroidery goes back to the time of Mughals, where the designs and motifs of flowers, animals, architecture and geometric patterns were immensely illustrated by using threads in subtle shades. A hand-embroidered saree can take anywhere from 5 days to 1 month to be ready.
Birthed from the belief that there is no apparel more classy and comfortable than a saree, through Endé, our dream was to make sarees more accepted and loved by women in their 20s and 30s - not just an occasional garment borrowed from our mothers, but something that we make space for in our own wardrobes.
Endé’s sarees are handwoven by skilled weavers from Bengal, Kota, Chanderi, Maheshwari, Mangalgiri, Chettinad and Banaras - heirlooms for the millennial generation at affordable and accessible price points.
Gently hand wash in cold water, and air dry the saree in shade. Iron in medium heat only.
Every piece is designed and crafted by hand. Any unevenness in texture or embroidery is not a defect, but a characteristic of the handwoven product and a part of the process, that makes it unique. We do not mass produce our clothes- each piece is specially tailored for you.
We will dispatch your box of happiness within 5- 15 days of your order being placed.
