ARTISTIC CREATION

Mysterious and cool, this avant garde netted muslin scarf- black with splashes of tie and dyed purple. Its chic look begs for an evening of dancing with the stars or cool jazz by the bay.

Early tie and dye work in India dates back over 400 years. Called Bandhini, this word comes from ‘tying’, which is Bandhan, in Hindi. Painstakingly laborious, the art of tying and the dyeing gives the distinctive pattern and colors, like the wisps of smoky black purple in this scarf. Finishing this chic piece are the random pieces of black floral appliques as an embellishment.

Fit for a business day-chic-look or a ravishing evening-diva-look, depending on what dress it complements. This scarf can also add a savvy, ethnic fashionista look as a sash or tied to your hair or knotted around your bag or as just wearable art on your left shoulder.

India’s textile & fabric traditions go down centuries- the talent of the craftsman and his dedication to his craft, passed on from one generation to another. A weave, a mix of colors, a design or a motif, a print, a piece of applique work- each a labor of love for the artisan, in giving birth to his creation.

Artikrti’s [meaning 'artistic creations'] mission is to take the fascinating kaleidoscope that is India and get the world outside to experience it. And add a stroke of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to your personal beauty or to your home.

Thank you for dropping in. In true Indian tradition, we hope your visit to Artikrti, as a guest, was a pleasurable one and we do hope to see you again in the future.

Measures 17” by 54”, with 10” tassels at each end.

Best Care for this one-of-a-kind scarf: Cold hand wash with mild shampoo & hang to dry OR dry clean

Handwoven fabrics tend to have a thread here or a thread there, which is sticking out or uneven. That is not deemed a defect. It is a mark of the painstakingly difficult art of creating a piece of work, purely by the handmade process. The same goes for complex embroidery, beadwork, mirror work and sequins work, where a bead or sequin may be missing or a tiny mirror's edge may be chipped. Again, not a defect please. This is true for hand printing or hand painting as well- you'd find a tiny spot or smudge of color in some places. The tiny slip of the hand will be so minute and will not take an atom away from the stunning beauty of the piece. [If there is a blemish and if it is prominent, the piece would not be completed nor would we offer it for sale.]
