Indian history wouldn’t be the same without resham (silk). Be it our favourite romantic numbers or the majestic layers of fabric our royalties were enrobed in when having their legacy captured for an eternity in their portraits.
Did you know any of these facts about silk?
- Silk is one of the oldest fabrics Indians have worn, dating back to 2000 BC (that’s 4000 years, by the way.)
- Mughals made it the fabric for the royalties when they brought in weavers from Turkey to refine its feel and shine.
- Also, Banarasi sarees are among most renowned form of silk products India produces today… which is funny since 97% of the export of silk we do is from Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Jammu.
Now, for the fun part, silk is a multi-climatic fabric. In simpler words, you can wear it in winters just as comfortably as you can in summers. Fine weaves make silk a perfect natural fabric to wear during the warmer days of the year, as they do during colder days because of its capacity to retain body heat.
Keeping this in mind, we decided to bring to you a brilliant collection of fine silk products this summer, after the exciting wedding collection last winter. And for those who are worried about the little silkworms and are wondering about how many were sacrificed… Well, the answer is none. Surprised?
For the silk collection, Taruni has only utilised Ahimsa (peace) silk, made by a new technique of silk extraction that doesn’t require to harm, hurt, or kill the silkworms as the fine thread is collected from them. This ensures high quality of silk, and preserves the silkworms as well!
Here’s a peek at our upcoming collection:
We can’t wait to share the rest of the collection with you, from gorgeous anarkali for the parties to delicate kurtis for your regular wear.
