Koel, a famous singing bird, is a symbol of power and intelligence. It has been interestingly used in this collection of handwoven tussar silk sarees.The natural gold sheen and the luxurious texture serve as a perfect base for the intricate motifs of the sarees. After the weaving process, the silk sarees travel to Rajasthan for further detailing. Woodblock dipped in mud is used for printing and then dipped in natural dyes for giving it a striking appearance. For the unusual appearance and distinct features, Dabu print sarees have permanently secured a place in Indian textiles.

The handloom & handicraft sector is the second biggest employer in rural India after agriculture. A huge industry of handmade booms in local rural & urban markets across the country. The handloom sector requires few resources and the entire process of creating a handmade fabric has a very low carbon footprint. Most raw materials are sourced from nature and the use of electric machines is almost nil. It is small scale and involves both men and women in producing the textile, which teaches self-reliance, sufficiency and symbolic resistance to mass- produce. A meter of handwoven fabric requires an inter-dependency between the farmer, ginners, spinners, dyers, carpenters, weavers, and many more people. This dependency is not hierarchical but cohesive, not self-centered but a mutual interest in survival. It's a celebration of weaving lives together.
