I Heart Nila Sari in Shade 0
sariIndigo-on-white is a timeless combination for Jamdani saris, evoking romantic visions of Bengal. This feather light textile with its distinct extra weft brocade on fine cotton muslin is a part of the rich heritage of West Bengal and Bangladesh.
The ‘I Heart Nila’ saree is a fresh, contemporary take on the classic, cotton Jamdani sari. The traditionally ornate border design is reimagined as a joyful double-heart motif, specially designed in the Nila studio in Jaipur and expertly woven at pit-looms in Murshidabad, West Bengal. The yarns for the lyrical extra weft motifs were dyed in natural indigo vats before being set to the looms. Edges of the sari were carefully hand-stitched by the women associated with Nila’s sister organisation LBCT in Jaipur.
The sari also comes with an additional chambray fabric in pale blue Shade 2 for a blouse that can be custom-stitched to your size and style. The fabric for the blouse piece was yarn dyed at natural indigo vats in Sawantwadi, Maharashtra and handwoven in Murshidabad.
The unique design of the ‘I Heart Nila’ sari in light, breathable jamdani brings an updated, youthful appeal to this iconic Indian garment. Pair it with a plain cotton t-shirt and sneakers for playful and effortlessly elegant styling.
