Fine Tussar Silk, Kantha embroidery
Saree length: 5.5 m (does not have a blouse piece)
An ode to the woods, the Zenia saree is a marvel with Zebra motifs embroidered with beautiful Parsi work in navy blue lined precisely with white kantha. Blooming flowers, big banana leaves, fluttering butterflies, floral strings, big and small petals and colours aplenty come together to create a beautiful medley on a base of sage green fine tussar silk.
Sreya Samanta: Bengal weaves reimagined
Well known for her experiments with Kantha embroidery traditions of Bengal, Samanta develops a quirky take on the tradition by creating contemporary narratives with the craft; also revelling in atypical Saree compositions. Her Jamdani experiments also see the designer drawing from the traditional repertoire of the colour palettes and weaving tradition, as well as adding new iterations to it. Samanta invests extensively in yarn development, and works in only the finest and softest of Bengal khadi cotton and silk fabrics (it is only in Bengal that Khadi achieves such a soft mul-like texture and the designer harnesses that beautifully.)
