Handwoven Bengal Cotton
Size: Standard Saree Length
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.
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.
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.
