Handwoven and graceful Mangalgiri saree in green with delicate horizontal silver stripes and a self border (comes with a detached handwoven cotton maroon blouse).

The town of Mangalgiri is known for its exquisitely crafted sarees influenced by indigenous designs of Andhra Pradesh that are reminiscent of the Nawabi rule.

A Mangalgiri saree is marked by hand-embroidered zari work with high thread density per square inch, ranging from 40 (coarse) to 120 (superfine), sometimes more. Combined with the unique technique of weaving on a pit loom without any gaps in the fabric - it takes a skilled weaver 3-4 full days of work to weave a Mangalgiri saree.

In Jamdani, motifs are inlaid into the fabric by adding a denser thread to fine warp threads by hand. This process is considered to be one of the most advanced hand weaving techniques in the world.

Our weavers from the Bengal cluster have been in the tradition of weaving for several generations.

This process is so time intensive that on a usual day, an artisan can weave only upto between a quarter and one inch of fabric. The creation of Jamdani weaves requires 2-3 weavers and anywhere between 1 week and 1 month to finish.

Stands for "mine" in Malayalam, in its most loving form, Ende festive collection shows the connect between the wearer and her prized piece of nine yards of grace.

Fabric: Handwoven cotton

Size: Standard Saree Length with detatched maroon blouse
