The royal Maheshwari Salwar kameez

Maheshwar, small town in Madhya Pradesh, India, was once having prominence as the capital of Malwa region during the rule of the Holkars. It has been since, a centre of handloom weaving. Famed for its Maheshwari Sarees, an innovation of the royal queen of the Holkars, Rani Ahalyabai, the Maheshwari fabrics are exclusive for their unique designs on silk and cotton fabrics, the fine use of zari and brilliant use of stripes, checks and exquisite floral borders.

The distinctive features of the Maheshwari

Distinctive features of the Maheshwari fabric are its light weight, shiny lustre, and a fine display of colours, with brilliant motifs, an attractive Pallu and a border to match.

The dupatta is particularly noted for the colourful stripes in varied colours such as green, pink, magenta, mauve, violet etc. which lend the fabric a mesmerising look. The border is also adorned by trendy designs and themes such as the Maheshwar fort and similar subjects.

The Maheshwari Work Process

The making of a Maheshwari salwar suit is divided into five stages – designing, procurement, dyeing, separating yarn for warp and weft, weaving and finishing.

Procurement of raw material is generally from three sources. The Cotton comes from Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, the silk from Bangalore, Karnataka and the Zari from Surat, Gujarat.

The dyeing of thread involves napthol dye, wet dye and procion dye for cotton fabrics in various combinations. Silk fabrics are dyed with readymade dyes which just need to be mixed and used directly by dipping the fabric in it.

Zari is used for the adornment as thread work directly on the fabric or on patch work attached to the kameez and dupatta. The dyeing of thread yarn takes place prior to the weaving of the fabric. After the dyed yarn has dried, the charka is used for separating of warp on large octagonal drums while the weft is prepared by reeling it onto bobbins.

The main weaving takes place according to the pre-determined design with warp and weft and the dobby mechanism on the loom helps with supplementary weft in the border pattern weave. Readied fabrics are then cut into the determined lengths, neatly folded and packed.
