The special appeal of Unnati Handloom Dupattas
What does this range of digitally printed arty art silk dupattas have to offer?
- There is a lot of imagery either in floral arrangements and scapes or large dimension images spread over the expanse such as scenes of nature, mosaic patterns and other digital representations. The beauty of digital techniques is that the transfer of images does not cause any loss whatsoever in likeness, sharpness or other attributes of the original.
- Colors are almost the same as the original with slight change on account of the metallic colors of the printer trying to match the color effect of fabric colors on the art silk fabric but not succeeding cent percent.
- Colors chosen are light and vibrant hues. Color combinations are one, two or multi-color.
- Borders are wide and at the ends, filled with geometrical patterns. Both ends are neatly and attractively tasseled.
- There are some products that have beautiful mosaic sketches surrounded by decorated borders on all sides.
- Crafted by the weavers of Rajasthan, it is a display of vividness and panorama.
But then what after all is the dupatta ?
The dupatta is an essential traditional garment, a much needed complement to the salwar suit. An engaging fabric, one exquisite dupatta easily pairs well with different salwar kameez. Also known as chunni, the colourful dupatta has utilitarian functions also. It is used as a protective scarf in windy conditions, serves as a stole or shawl in cold weather, turns into a handy fabric for reverence when visiting a Gurudwara (sikh temple) or as a cover for the head in the presence of elders in the family or visitors. In passing it may be mentioned that this decorative fabric serves beyond its useful life as chunni by its aesthetic appeal as light colourful curtains in a house. Other similar uses can also be envisaged.
The appeal of handloom fabrics lies in the ethnic hand woven techniques employed to churn out fine, soft, transparent, airy, light and aesthestically appealing fabrics. The choice of vibrant colours, the use of organic dyes, the quality of weaving, the employment of limited resources; yet outcomes are a sensational mix with borders, designs, patterns, motifs, themes, hand painting and exquisite embroidery that even modern day methods fail to match. It is an amalgam or delightful blend of ethnic skill, care and devotion. The Dupatta, the scarf or the stole brought out as handloom fabrics woven with dedication and care are worthy additions.
