With the gradual escalation of globalization all over the world, the ascendancy of western world has taken the central stage. And India has not been unaffected by it. Even amidst all, one traditional India wear has remained absolutely unfazed. Sarees. 6 yards of absolute beauty, elegance and heritage. The long unstitched yards of fabric is draped in various styles across this diverse country but not one style is synonymous to anything found outside the borders.
Another major alteration, modernism has brought forth is the influence of industrialization. Earlier from fabric weaving to garment sewing were all done by hand. So were the detailing added to beautify garments. Painting, printing, dyeing, embroidery, crocheting, etc were all hand done. This not only took a lot of time but inconsistency in the work produced was also easily spot-able. To combat the demand from the ever growing population, machines were introduced into the fashion industry. This not only sped up the production process but also brought consistency in the details and designs.
But in the midst of machine-produced fashion people soon identified the monotone and lack of uniqueness in the pieces they wore. Every human is different with exclusive aesthetics of their own. Mass produced clothes failed to live up to these expectation and soon people turned towards hand made and hand produced clothes.
One such traditonal and Indian cottage industry scion is the art of hand block printing on fabric. This 2000 years old art-form flourished under the Mughal patronage even though it's earliest signs of existence can be dated back to the Indus Valley civilization. Since forever the seat of block printing has been Rajasthan. The massive state of sand-dunes is known for its colourful prints of gods, goddesses, humans, animals and birds. Floral motifs are also a key feature to identify Rajasthani block prints from the rest of the country. With the passage of time every state has mastered and created a uniqueness of their own. For example, Gujarat produces ajrakh prints using natural fabric colors, while Kutch's popular motifs come in red and black designs of women, animals and birds. Punjab produces print with floral and geometrical motifs in light pastel hues and Bengal's Serampore is known for using vibrant patterns in their block prints.
Dailybuyys does block printing on silk and tussar silk saree. The finest silk is produced once the silkworms feed on the mulberry leaves. It takes around 6 weeks to grow to their full potential (about 3 inches) when they stop eating and begin to raise their heads – that’s when they’re ready to spin their cocoon.
Attached to a secure frame or tree, the silkworm will begin spinning its silk cocoon by rotating its body in a figure-8 movement around 300,000 times – a process which takes around 3 to 8 days. Each silkworm produces just one single strand of silk, which measures about 100 metres long and is held together by a type of natural gum, called sericin. The cocoons are placed into boiling water in order to soften and dissolve the gum that is holding the cocoon together. This is a crucial step in the silk production process as it ensures that there is no damage to the continuity of each thread. Finally the soap is washed in boiling water. Finally they are bleached and dyed. Producing the finest and softest silk variants.
