I Heart Nila Sari in Shade 6
‘I Heart Nila’ sari is a fresh, contemporary take on the classic, cotton Jamdani sari. The traditionally ornate sari border is reimagined as joyful double-heart motifs, designed in-house at the Nila Studio in Jaipur. The sari is made of fine, handwoven cotton muslin dipped six times in a natural indigo vat to reach the rich, midnight blue of indigo in ‘Shade 6’. The lyrical extra weft design is woven in a combination of undyed white and a lighter indigo in Shade 2. The textile for the sari 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 soothing blue ‘Shade 3’ 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 garment. Several layers of slow, handmade processes go into creating a single piece, making it a textile to be cherished. 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.
