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 different parts of India, to preserve our weaving heritage and craftsmanship, creating heirlooms for the millennial generation at affordable and accessible price points.
Known for the embellished zari work, Banarasi sarees can be traced back to the Vedic times.
Zari threads used in a Banarasi saree are flattened thin metallic strips drawn from gold alloys, wound around silk yarns and brightened to increase their sheen.Each Banarasi saree is woven by 2-3 weavers simultaneously in a traditional pit loom, often taking almost 4-5 weeks to make a single drape.
The elaborate and laborious Kadwa (Kadhua) technique involves hand-weaving each motif separately. It takes longer on the handloom but makes a more robust pattern, which stands out on the fabric.
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.
