I Heart Nila Sari in Shade 3
‘I Heart Nila’ sari is a fresh, contemporary take on the classic, cotton Jamdani saree. The traditionally ornate sari border is reimagined as playful double-heart motifs, designed in-house at the Nila Studio in Jaipur. The sari is made of fine, handwoven cotton muslin dyed in natural indigo to reach ‘Shade 3’ - a soft and vibrant cornflower blue on the Nila indigo rainbow. The lyrical extra weft design is woven in a combination of un-dyed white and a deeper indigo in ‘Shade 6’. The textile was handwoven and dyed in Murshidabad, West Bengal. The edges were carefully hand-stitched by the women associated with Nila’s sister organisation LBCT in Jaipur.
The sari comes with an additional chambray fabric in midnight blue ‘Shade 6’ for a blouse that can be custom-stitched to your size and style. The fabric for the blouse piece was dyed at natural indigo vats in Sawantwadi, Maharashtra and handwoven in Murshidabad.
Several layers of slow, handmade processes go into creating the ‘I Heart Nila’ sari. The unique design of the saree in light, breathable jamdani brings an updated, youthful appeal to this iconic garment.
Pair it with a cotton t-shirt or our Silk Kantha T-Shirt for effortlessly elegant styling.
Composition & Care

Hand wash separately in cold water.
Natural indigo is a millennia-old plant dye. The alchemy of earth, water; air, and indigo leaves creates an unpredictable beauty. The rich natural colour of the indigo textile may fade slightly over time, with exposure to direct sunlight.
