Gopalpur Tussar needs no introduction. It’s a must have in every handloom connoisseur’s wardrobe! The art of space dyeing or “bandha/ बाँधा” is explored in multiple forms through the state of Odisha and one cannot help but be fascinated by the sheer skill of the artisans who shape these intricate patterns at yarn stage.
“Bhandha” literally translates to tied.. that’s the main element of any traditional textile forms like Ikat, Patola or these bandha beauties from Odisha. Imagine the sheer creativity of the master weaver who ties the yarn with utmost precision to make the beautiful motifs take shape as the saree is woven.
First from our modern bandha series, Shree is a celebration of this indigenous craft but with an up to date outlook. Less is more has been our mantra here. While the traditional bandha designs are equally awe inspiring, we found the simplicity of this series extremely endearing.
