Unnati Silks: The Handloom Saga

Unnati Silks is a saga of ‘HANDLOOMS FOR WOMEN‘ that began in 1980. An experience of three decades plus in silk and cotton textiles Unnati has carved out a niche presence for itself in being the manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of genuine silk cotton handlooms like sarees, salwar suits, kurtas, kurtis and other Indian ethnic fabrics.  Its Customer – Centric approach provides with a strong belief that each and every customer is special and requires that something, which is unique, refreshing, fashionable and of quality. 

Having a product range that is as varied as it is vast, handwoven and handcrafted, the devotion and dedication of talented ethnic artisans from across 21 states of India comes through in the products on display. Having the Handloom Mark and Silk Mark for most of its products, Unnati’s customers are assured a legitimate backing too, despite being guaranteed original handloom products from the start.

This blog post is really special to me. Firstly, because of my Collaboration with  #Unnati Silks & secondly for my love for Indian wear, which makes me come back to Ethnic Post!! I received a beautiful Handcrafted Saree from Unnati Silk. Its Grey Pure Rajasthani Cotton Dabu Printed Saree

So, What exactly is Dabu Printing?

Dabu printing is a traditional art and an elaborate process in a unique way of dyeing and printing by which exceptional print fabrics of unique appeal result. This mud-resist hand-block printing is practiced mostly in certain pockets in the state of Rajasthan, India. The appearance of these fabrics is unique for the brilliant floral and thematic patterns in sharp and finely detailed prints of bright and well-chosen hues & designs that have left modern pundits dumbstruck.

The highlight of Dabu printed fabrics is the use of organic colours and vegetable pastes which are eco-friendly, skin-friendly, fast, and retain their brilliance for most of the lifetime of the fabric. Dabu printed sarees undergo a rigorous process that involves a lot of not so easily available and costly natural dyes and vegetable pastes.

So Coming back to the post. I received this beautiful cotton grey dabu printed saree. I styled it by wearing it with a contrast mustard shade cold shoulder crop top. Kept the Palla a little loose from the side & sleek from the front. I love the way this saree was so easy to manage & all its pleats were intact without even using the safety pins!! The saree was super comfortable & the quality of the fabric was so good, that even after wearing it for more than 2-3 hours, it didn’t had any crease. It’s a wedding season, you can carry this unique & stylish look to your friend’s haldi or mehendi function. 

Accessories

  • I styled this look with a pair of golden jhumkas, a ring & bangles. 
  • As for my hairdo, I made a high bun & accessorized it with a leafy golden band.

Unnati Silks has an amazing collection of handlooms from various states and styles. From Cotton & silks sarees to Salwaar Kameez, skirts, fabrics & Kurtas they have all. And I must say they are best in both quality & price. So, what are you waiting for? Check their amazing collection by clicking the link below.
