Details

This exquisite chanderi shawl with classic Indian paisley patterns highlights the timeless beauty of varaq printing. Designed by Priti, the off-white wrap is woven with a silk and a cotton warp, resulting in crisp, glossy sheer textures. The shiny silver paisleys are block-printed by hand using extremely slender foil threads, which are also prepared by hand through a labor-intensive process that can take up to 4 hours to make - if it's not raining. Nowadays, authentic varaq printing is done by a few artisans solely in Jaipur. Named after a city in Madhya Pradesh, chanderi fabrics can be traced back to Vedic times; however, it was not until the 1970's that the cotton and silk blend fabric was developed.
