Ikat is one of our favourite kind of weave. Ikat is an Indonesian word derived from the word ‘mengikat’, meaning to tie. Although Ikat originated in Indonesia, it travelled far and wide to India, Japan and China. Even within India there is the Ikat from Gujarat and then that from Orissa. The basic technique of ikat might be the same in all these regions but tiny distinctions make the ikat of each of these regions very distinct.
The Ikat from the Sambhalpur region of Orissa is very detailed and has beautiful motifs that have been woven into the saree. The weaving process is intensive and every thread and motif is woven with love. The colour contrast makes a bright bold statement.
The Lajja saree has traditional fmotifs woven through the body and the pallu along with a bright border to hold it all in.
Fabric : Cotton Handloom Ikat
NOTE: The saree does not come with a blouse. The blouse in the pictures is for styling purposes only.
