Weaving of tant saree is famous and an age old crafting of West Bengal and Bangladesh. The craftsmen neatly weave the cotton to thread which is woven to tant saree. Two shuttles are used for this purpose. Traditionally, handlooms were used by the weavers, which have today been largely replaced by power looms to weave these sarees.
The typical Tant saree is characterized by a thick border and a decorative pallav, woven using a variety of floral, paisley and other artistic motifs.
62/100 #100sareepact is a surprise Puja gift from ‘Shokhi’, which I wore during the second day of Kaali puja at home.
This beautiful baby-pink tant,has a golden and royal blue border which creates a wonderful bright and uncommon colour contrast.
The additional border that gives this saree a twist is stitched separately and the famous golden zaree work adds the glamour quotient. The baby pink body is designed with famous ‘buti’ work in blue.
I deliberately kept the anchal fall in front to show this beautiful patch work in the borders….
Golden ring, golden rings and a heavy navy blue neckpiece were the finer touches…
This saree will always be close to my heart since this has come from a cozy Bardhama boutique wrapped with lots of warmth and love…to add this is the first saree gifted by ‘Shokhi’!
Aptly a drama got created with this unique and contrast combination… It’s a Royal Blue entry, in the Pink base/stage of a new saree tale…:) 🙂
Thanks ‘Shokhi’ for this wonderful piece. Hope you will like my offbeat draping 😉
See you soon…….!
